Another misconception. In truth, it's easier to get a "stock" timing set "lined up" using a straight-edge through the bolt hole "centers", across the "dots" while at 12 o'clock. This reduces the potential for 'missing' the timing by adding a longer distance to check that the dots are truly "lined up". Of course, degreeing the cam is the REAL way to do it "right". Gimme a break guys, I've only done this a few thousand times... (:-
