    Removed Carbs, RV problem

    Working on a 93 XP and I removed the RV cover to get the carbs off to have them rebuilt. For some stupid reason I forgot to remove the lanyard switch and accidently bumed the start button for a few seconds. I am assuming this means my RV timing needs to be reset? If so can anyone tell me how difficult this is to do and where I can get a degree wheel?

    Thanks

    If you didn't take off the actual RV, it will be fine. If you took off the valve of the splined shaft, you'll need to re-time it. Taking off the cover will not affect the timing.

    awesome. so even though the motor turned over the valve moved with it, meaning the timing is still right where it needs to be? Thanks!!

    Yes, as long as it didn't blow it off the splines.
