Timing marks

I've got an Allis-Chalmers CA and I'm just about to mate the distributor gear to the intermediate gear but I can't seem to locate the timing marks on the gears. I can't seem to see anything! Has anyone had this problem before? Where should I look to find them? Would they be on the side of the gears or on the ends? How can I solve it? What do I do now... sell it? Just had the engine rebuilt.

The I&T service manual shows a layout of the three gears: 1)crankshaft, 2)camshaft & 3) combo governor/mag/dist drive. The crank gear should have a straight line mark on one tooth on the flat face of the gear. The camshaft gear should have a corresponding straight line mark in a valley between two teeth on the keyway part of the circumference in line with the keyway. This mark is also on the flat face of the gear. These two gears should be mated so that the two straight line marks are aligned with each other.

On the circumference opposite the straight line mark on the cam gear (and opposite the keyway) there should be a dot or an "o" mark on a tooth. This mark is also on the flat face of the gear. It should be aligned with a corresponding dot or "o" mark located between two teeth on the flat face of the combo gear.

The marks are small and may be difficult to see but should be there.

Hope this helps.

Today's Featured Article - Madison's County - by Anthony West. Philip Madison has been a good friend of mine for quite some time. He has patiently suffered my incessant chit chat on the subject of tractors for longer than I care to remember, and on many occasions he has put himself out, dropped what ever it was he was doing, to come and lend a hand cranking handles, or loading a find onto a trailer. Although he himself has never actually owned or restored a tractor, he was always enthusiastic and always around helping with other peoples projects. ... [Read Article]
