Timing a 283

Postby lolligagger » Fri Feb 05, 2016 3:51 pm

I am in the middle of rebuilding a Wakashaws 283 Diesel can someone who has knowledge tell me how to time the front gears? I've got the "C"'s lined up for the Crank and Cam with #1 cylinder at top however, I am not understanding aligning the Crank-Idler- and Fuel pump gear.

I have taken the window cover off the fuel pump aligned the marks correctly, the gear for the fuel pump also has a "S" marked on the back side. the Idler has two "S" marks on both the small and larger gear. however, I am at a loss...
finally, when the Cam is in line with Crank "C"'s the Cam also has a "S" half way up toward the outside of engine

Appreciate any advice or help, if someone has a schematic of this could you email it to me? mikephilbeck@hotmail.com

Thanks Mike
