883 evo sportster cam/pinion gears
Motor is a 1987 883 Evo
Hi guys. I wonder if I can ask a very dumb question. I have just taken off the cam gear cover to replace the gasket which was leaking, when I pulled the cover off the cam gears came away with it. No problems there, I took the head covers off and pulled the push rods up and replaced the cam gears. I lined them all up as per the manual, but I cant find a mark on the pinion gear like the manual says?
In fact I cant see any marks on it at all.
Is there one, or do you have to put it on TDC or something?
I took the lock washer off and took the pinion gear right off to make sure, It sits on a multi spline so it can go on in a variety of ways.
Might also sound funny, but how do you tell top dead center ?
Appreciate any help please?
