I went back out and found the D/C mark. It was right after spark which makes sense. No problem there.

The question I have is it says to rotate the engine 1/2 revolution of the crankshaft to adjust the second set of valves. So, would I turn my crank exactly a half turn? I wish they had it marked on the flywheel also.
Thanks again.

The DC mark has to be on the #1 compression stroke so put your finger over the spark plug hole as you turn the engine. You'll feel the air pushing against your finger when it's on the compression stroke. When it gets to DC stop and set those two valves as both are completely closed. You could put a mark on the front pulley at 9 oclock looking from the front and stop when it gets to 3 oclock. That would be half a round. Or you could use a straw in the plug hole as the #2 piston comes up on compression to find the top. You're looking for the point when both valves are completely closed so watch the rockers as well.
