  1. Hi I have a 1941 Buick Special 8. It has a 248 inline 8. I just got my radiator back and have been trying to get the car running. We were trying to figure out the timing but I don't understand how to do this with out the "degree scale" on later cars (excuse my lack of proper terminology). There is a mark or indentation on the flywheel but nothing to measure it against. As well I have been unable to find what the timing should be set to. All I can seam to find is "BTDC or as marked) I'm not fully sure I understand this. What mark are they referring to and what does it line up with? The last thing we were having trouble was the dwell. I found something that I think was saying between 21 an 30. I not fully confident it that value though. Below are some pictures. I am also in the process of converting to 12V. This is just a temporary setup while we are trying to get it working. There are more pictures at Edward Marciano's Photos - 41 Buick | Facebook Thanks for all your help guys Ed
  2. Hello! I'm rebuilding my first engine (oldsmobile 394 cui from 1960). Bought an deluxe rebuild kit that also included new camshaft (from a starfire), timing chain and sprockets. Now to the problem, I can't seem to get the marks on the sprockets to line up. The cylinder #1 is in TDC and I know that the crank sprocket marking should be at 12 o clock while the cam sprocket marking should be at 6 o clock, right? It doesn't mather how I install the sprockets, the marks will always have a little distance. I can't get the cam sprocket to get at exactly 6 o clock. Is this how it is meant to be or have I done something wrong? How much will this do for the timing, will the engine run correctly? Maybe it has something to do with the swap to a starfire camshaft? I also noticed that the marks on the old sprockets were bigger than on the new ones. Pictures of the markings: http://oi45.tinypic.com/2qiplcj.jpg http://oi48.tinypic.com/rh66tv.jpg (red line where it's supposed to be??) Greetings, Andreas from Sweden
