Default RE: Checking timing on a Saito 80

You can pull the glow plug and valve covers. There is a spot at TDC where there is valve overlap. In other words both valves are slightly opened. So put a tooth pic or small wooden dowel in the glow plug hole and turn the engine till both valves are open. Your piston should be at TDC.
