  1. Can't seem to fix LT on compression stroke for setting tappets

    Engine Discussion
    I've read and re-read the manuals. Even youtubed it but for the life of me, I can't seem to get the alternator rotor to fix on TDC for the left cylinder on the compression stroke for setting the tappets. The rotor simply springs beyond the setting by about 60 degrees. Witnessing the left...
