Top Dead Center

Hey there,

I was wondering if it is alright to find TDC with a dial indicator or if it is necessary to use a degreeing wheel?

TDC

You can use an indicator but you will need to remember that the piston dwells at tdc for a few degrees. You would need to rotate the engine untill you get the piston at tdc watching the indicator and setting it to zero as soon as it stops moving upward,,,then watch the indicator untill it starts to move again and measure how many degrees you rotate the engine untill it moves away from zero. then take 1/2 of this amount for tdc..... All in all it's easyer to use the degree wheel and the stop.....
