2008 valve tdc

Post by Hodge »

I am about to do a valve check/adjust and have watched a couple of vids but....

I have seen the straw method. just stick it in the plug hole and  advice such as use the lug.  it does seem a bit heath robinson, when i,m actually measuring 1000ths of an inch in clearance but using a guesstimate to set TDC

Does anyone have any pics of this or is there a more scientific way

Around 5 mins in to this video, it suggests there is a TDC mark.
