FT-240 Cam/Crankshaft Timing
Does anyone know how to set camshaft to crankshaft timing marks on this engine. I see that the crankshaft has a mark on it and the camshaft has a hole. I know these need to be aligned, but are the timing marks on each gear wheel aligned so each is pointing away from each other or towards each other?
Also, does anyone know definitively whether air tool oil will dissolve gummy oil deposits in engines? I have read some forum posts about old brand new engines seizing because of congealed/dried up oil inside the engine (because original factory oil has dried up over the many years an engine has been sitting). In particular, oil hole blockage on connecting rods by dried up oil leading to lubrication failure during the first run of the engine.
