anyway, i finally sourced a crank for it and have got it almost built up, but came across a bit of a snag, how do you set up the cam timing?
I have a workshop manual , albeit one in hilariously bad chinglish, it doesn't go into much detail though as all it says is "line up the timing marks", which is a bit of a pain, the cam one is ok as you can see it, crank one not so much, its marked on the flywheel, but there are three marks, i assume the one on its own is the correct one?
also you need to have the outer casing etc on.. which is a pain as if its wrong you have to strip it all down again.... why they couldn't mark the crank gear i have no idea, as you need to have the flywheel off to fit the chain...
i assume there must be a locking tool available for them? or some other trick, otherwise i'll have to take it apart again and make my own marks once i find tdc, no big deal really but would be nice to know what the "proper" way to do it is.
