Getting ready to pull the distributor to retime the motor, in the book it says that there s a arrow in the rectangular inspection opening, but I don t see it. Do you just line up "0" (I guess "0" is top dead center) in the middle of the opening then adjust the distributor? The tractor has electronic ignition and the vacuum advanced is still attached.

Yes I do know what TDC means. I was wondering what BTDC means?

BTDC = BEFORE Top Dead Center. So, any number other than zero would be BTDC. You'll notice that the numbers on the flywheel are only on one side of the zero, which just happens to be the leading side as you rotate the engine in the normal direction of rotation. All gas and diesel timing events are done BTDC. None of them are done ATDC.

TDC is zero. 2 degrees is 2 degrees.

Do you know what TDC means? It means Top Dead Center. The degree scale is referenced and begun at this point.

I just checked a 5000 - no mark. I then checked a 7710 and the mark was there. The arrow simply shows the center of the opening.

Thanks, I'll wipe of more grime off that plate. When we got the tractor, the tractor was missing the cover for that.

Flywheel should be stamped 0-2-4-6-8-10----20----30.

The arrow is on the plate, not the flywheel.

Today's Featured Article - The Nuts and Bolts of Fasteners - Part 2 - by Curtis Von Fange. In our previous article we discussed capscrews, bolts, and nuts along with their relative hardness and thread sizes. In this segment we will finish up on our fasteners and then work with ways to keep them from loosening up in the field. Capscrews, bolts and nuts are not the only means of holding two parts together. When dealing with thinner metals like sheet tin, a long bolt and ... [Read Article]
