i took my head off and am about to put it back on. now i cant find the TDC marks on the flywheel.... no matter what.
SO how can i tell TDC. when cylinder 1 and 4 are all the way up?
pics for clicks
crank pully but I guess thats prob off right now
i knew to pull the plug on the housing, my friend turned the crank while i looked over and over then we switched spots and he looked over and over, we were probably at it for 20+ minutes of just looking.
i checked with a maglight as well as a super bright LED light and fluorescent shop light, nothing, almost as if the flywheel was changed with one that has no TDC mark... im finding this kinda hard to believe lol
we checked the pulley that has the TDC mark on the bottom of the engine and it was lined up but i wanted to find the one on the flywheel as well.
SO if cylinder 1 and 4 are all the way up is that alright or should i really find the mark on the flywheel? i dont wanna punch my valves.
I have never used the flywheel for reference marks. I used the crank pulley and the valve cover... rotate the engine by hand 2 times and if it still lines up you are good to go.

As said before use the crank pulley mark, on my car the TDC mark on the flywheel was of a lil bit, which is why those with experience always say to not go by the flywheel.
