I am in the final stages of installing my rebuilt 216 into my '46 3/4 ton
I need help with four things:
1. How do I orient the flywheel so that the timing mark is in the right
2. I would like to roughly set the valves. Can I set them to the specs for a
hot engine before I start it for the first time so that the valves are close
and the engine will fire?
3. I am thinking that I will static time the engine so that I can get the
timing close. Is the right thing to do?
4. Any other tips for a first time do-it-yourselfer in getting the new engine
in and running correctly?
