I have this 1948 Ferguson Serial #74000+ and I am trying to find a timing hole under the starter, I can not find that hole for the life of me. I have the starter off and I still didn't find any marks on the flywheel. I bought the tractor dead and I want to put a new TO-20 distributor in it. I have the valve cover off and the #1 cyl with both valves up and still don't see any marks on the flywheel with the starter off. I tried turning the flywheel 180 degrees from #1 and didn't see any marks.What am I missing? Thanks

Thank you John Deere D, you are correct, there was timing marks in that location. I had the valves set closed on #1 cylinder and the marks on the casting and pulley were right there.
Now all I have to do is get the the governor to slow down, free the stuck transmission clutch, generator doesn't work, no brakes, leaky radiator, no working gauges, no wiring or switches whats of any kind, but the hydraulics on the 3pt does go up and down. I may have to hit this one over the head and part it out. I hate to that!

Quote from John (UK):
The Timing Marks on a TE20 Engine are on the Timing Cover and the marks are cast into the cover. third party image
