Later C's came with distributors. The C rear axles are longer so the C is about a foot wider in the rear end. Use the hole in the side and look for the word "fire". You may have to clean the side of the flywheel with degreaser. No B's were tricycle but a lot of C's were.

If you have a manual crank handle, turn the motor slowly untill the handle is about horizontal and you will hear the magnito "snap". At that point, you look in the hole on left side of the flywheel and you should be at the TDC mark. If not, roll the motor 180 degrees and listen for the "snap" and check again. If you dont see the TDC, then stop a few degrees sooner, or after the snap and check. It helps to have someone else look in the hole while you crank .. by hand.

If you are going to put a distributer on it you will need to find the TDC or CENTER line as well.

Any engine with a distributer is timed to TDC for start up. Some cars need to be adjusted after start to a book setting. These engines don't.

You can find how to time a distributer below on a large thread.
