Hey guys, I've ordered a manual but it hasn't shown up yet. I'm trying to put my 250cc honda elite engine back together but I seem to be a bit lost. Maybe you can help?
The problem is the timing I think. When I took apart the engine I marked the cam gear and then a bit later I marked the chain where I thought it lined up with the mark on the cam gear. I should have marked them together so I'd know exactly where they were before I took it apart but I didn't. Now after getting it back together I am hearing some nasty sounds in the engine like it's way off the timimg mark.
I pulled the valve cover back off and removed the cam again. I then lined the marks up and put it back together but I can tell I'm still way off.
Even if I'm off one tiny tooth it won't run right?
The cam gear has an "o" mark on it for reference I assume.
Anyone have any idea what I do to get this back together correctly?
