OK Guys!! This is dumb. I can not find the timing mark on the flywheel. I can't even find the pointer. I really wish that I had paid attention when I had the damn thing apart. I really feel dumb. I am trying to set the #1` piston to TDC on the compression stroke and then set the distributor. Any advise out there ????

I agree withDhuth but would add take a soft wire and slowly raise the piston to top dead center with all plugs out so as to make turnong eng easy. You will be able to feel the piston move up and start back down. In the dark with a flash light you may even be able to see the piston moving thru the plug hole. After getting the crank turned to top dead center I would add my own marks to the front crank pulley andthe eng block or housing with a paint stick or engraving tool. Put the marks where it is most convenient for you to see and to put them on the parts with what ever you decide to use.

That mark on the flywheel is really hard to find. Get the No. 1 cylinder at TDC of the compression stroke and then really clean the flywheel good on the bottom. The pointer is just an indention in the removable cover in front of the fly wheel. If you have the cast cover (Don't think super Cs had that) it is a raised place on the casting. It is directly at the bottom, so when flywheel mark and pointer are aligned, the flywheel mark is at the lowest point possible.

Haas, The pointer was SO BIG I never would have guessed it was a pointer and as far as the mark on the flywheel goes I think that must have been one of IH's trade secrets. hahahahahah I think I have things lined up but not because of the timing mark on the flywheel. I am going to keep looking just so I can say I have seen one. hahahhaaha Thanks all

Yes, the pointer is so big you don't even think of it as that. And the TDC mark is so dim on the flywheel that a little rust or grease obscures it entirely.

This may also sound dumb but in my I-T service manual they say IH405 series a,b,c ingnition timing marks which can be viewed through hand hole in the bottom of the clutch housing #1 is at TDC when flywheel mark "DC/1-4 or dot mark is in register w/indicator on the clutch housing cover. I am reading it word for word in the book. I dont know if this applies to your C or not. You may want to pull a plate off of your clutch housing cover to see if there are timing marks that are visable.

The manual is right.That mark on the flywheel is a pain in the %$@#%@ to find.Clean of the flywheel with scotch brite or sand paper to make it easier to find.Once you find it,highlite it with a paint stick so the job will be easier next time around.

I normally pull number one plug and crank engine over until you feel the compression stroke quit. and set your distributor in with rotor at the #1 tower on dist.May take several attempts as rotor may turn. You may then be able to see the marks on flywheel as well. Should get you close enough to fire it off.Hope it helps you out.
