    locking the crank and cam

    If you lock the crank and the cam, it looks like your're about 110 degrees into the power stroke. Is this correct? I had always assumed you would be at top dead center.

    Thanks

    Mike, I agree. The first time I saw this I thought I screwed something up.

    the numbers on the rocker cover are opposite what the manual says for timing and that the front is actually no.1 when the cover says 3 go figure!
