I remove the spark plug.
I install a pencil point down the hole.
I now feel the pencil come up and go down.
I did see this one mark for TDC.
I have to roll the crank backwards from that TDC mark.
I now find the advance mark on any twin crank/multi crank/show me the crank and I'll show you the two different marks... Never mind... figured it out.

Ok. So I'm trying find top dead center for front cylinder. The manual says the mark in the timing hole is T:F. So I got it in my timing hole but I can't get it exactly centered in timing hole. When I do it rolls back putting it about halfway in the timing hole. Is this close enough to do what I need to do (adjust pushrods) or does it have to be perfectly centered in timing hole ??

Bye the way, even though u talk in code and half the stuff u say I dnt quite understand I appreciate u reaching out to me and trying o help CNTRHUB

ADJUSTING PUSH-RODS:

Rotate engine until exhaust lifter just starts to open valve, or exhaust lifter just starts to rise,
adjust intake push rod; rotate engine (counter clockwise from left side, or primary side of engine) until intake valve, or intake lifter rises to total lift, then keep rotating engine until valve, or lifter closes approximately half way, then adjust exhaust pushrod.
Repeat for other cyl. using opening and closing of lifters, or valves on that cyl.

Remember, all rotations of the engine are done counter clockwise on primary side of engine.....

Get what you can out of it.

EOIC

Exhaust begins to Open = Set intake pushrod on that cylinder you be looking at the one cylinder only.
Intake begins to Close = That's when you adjust the exhaust pushrod of the same cylinder.

Do this for any engine no matter the cylinder count. That means, rocker arms, push rods, shim under bucket uses the same EOIC principal. Of course, the shim is for taking a measurement only. But if it's a rocker arm adjustment, leave the crank at the EOIC as you would the pushrods and adjust those.

By the book is another way of adjusting both rods at the same time is @ TDC. In first gear, begin to roll the bike so it stops at TDC and won't roll back on you... If you want to set the rods this way.
