Re: [T3] TDC issues

<x-flowed>How much is the mark off? If it doesnt line up its going to be difficult to 
time the things with a timing light. The pully really should line up with 
the mark in the case. Especially considering its keyed on the crank.

As for the dist yea the rotor should line up with the mark on the dist body. 
But you cant have dist body twisted all the way to one direction or the 
other, because you will need available twist to get the timing correct.

I believe that in one of the manuals, it shows that the dist drive shaft, 
and the notches in it, should be at a 60 deg angle (with the smaller section 
pointed forward) compared to the centerline of the case.
