Does any one have actual pictures of one or both of the timing marks on a 1936 unstyled WC flywheel they could post here?

Flwheel can only go on one way. The mag, however, can be off a multitude of ways. Get #1 on TDC compression and set the mag to fire then.

Ok. I got every thing put back together this morning and tried to start the WC. I probably cranked on it continuously for about 4 minutes, 1 quarter turn at a time. I got about 3 pops and a couple of backfires out of all that. Oh, and a worn out shoulder. Went back to it about an hour ago and started over with the timing. Finally, I was trying a different approach. I put my thumb on #2 spark plug hole and cranked it over, and when it came up on compression, I looked at the flywheel, and the "F" mark was almost lined up with the bolt hole in the middle of the bottom cover. Is it possible for the flywheel to be installed wrong on the crankshaft?

Since the "F" mark is on #2 cylinder, would that mean that the timing mark is 90 degrees off?

Am I going to end up pulling the engine out to fix this?

The retaining bolt on the crankshaft pulley is either at 12 oclock or six oclock for the flywheel marks to be up or down.

That finger screw hatch will have an F roll by at the top of the fly wheel. Actually a verticle line next to the F. I just timed my 38 unstyled a couple weeks ago.

I "googled" WC timing marks under images tab and found these. These may not be what you have but at least will give you some idea. The timing mark is about a 1/2" long dash with TDC, F, or fire stamped next to it. HTH

I found the marks last night. I finally corralled some help. My neighbor came down and watched the flywheel while I cranked the engine over. I never would have found it by myself. The last picture is exactly what it looks like......

Thank you. This will help. Tough to search for the marks when you are by yourself and trying to turn the crank and look at it all......

Today's Featured Article - Bad Vibes - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the strangest ways to communicate with our tractor is to ask it how it feels. "Ask it how it feels," you say? Yup, ask it how it feels. Now, as with the other articles in this series one has to be able to hear what 'ole blue' is trying to say in response. The nice thing about our old iron friends is that they are usually quite consistent in their response, rather unlike some people I know who might change what they say due to the weather or other mitigating circumstances. But since t ... [Read Article]
