Hi I'm working on a 1975 xl125 and was curious about which marks to line up for the timing chain, I've been searching google but haven't been able to find anything, and also what are the torque specs for the head and cyl nuts, thanks
Hi I m working on a 1975 xl125 and was curious about which marks to line up for...
I see where to line the cam at but what mark do I set it on the crank? T? F? Or the 2 dashes
Got go on the T is this the sealed head model
Yes, I see the notch where I line the cam up just didn't know about the flywheel, I knew the F was to set the pointa
Do you think this is set correct? It's the closest I get it to line up
That's it circle print at top did you set cam lobes at bottom
The cam lobes are set in pretty much the spot you slide it in at, I rolled it over a few times by hand and the valves aren't hitting the piston
Cool but yea that's the circle marking to Top you have a very old xl classic
Later xl for comparison
Ok mine looks the same thanks!
Well done lads
Thanks mike putting pics up
Yup it's a 1975 which I believe is the first yr
And it's like the first 200th one made
Hows my engine looking !!!
Michael Martin looking dry might pull it out soon
