    96 polaris sl basic timing question

    With front mag cylinder at tdc - timing #/marks on flywheel should be able too be seen thru top inspection access - correct? I have to rotate engine well below mag tdc in order too see marks which means my flywheel has rotated - which is why it backfires and does'nt start = correct? Wanted to confirm before lifting engine thanks

    Yes. Sounds like a sheared flywheel key. Post 29. http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/show...ywheel+polaris
