I agree about it being slightly out of time. I actually checked the timing according to the manual and I come up with the marks about 3/32" off. When the takeup arm is all the way up the marks don't quite line up. I don't know how to correct it. Like I said, last year I was at Ariel and he was working on a Consew 226R, so must know something about them. If I can't figure it out I think I'll take it to him.
