I was trying to help a friend time his Whippet 4 cly engine after the distributor mount was replaced. the engine had rotated after the breakage and we did not have any good information to go by. the flywheel has a hole that shows in the plate covering the flywheel that we believe should correspond to TDC but we don't get fire when we drop the distributor in pointing to #1 on the cap. we have determined that we have it on the compression stroke, and the points are working. Are any instructions available?

The flywheel mark was indeed the TDC and after moving the distributer base a bit at a time it is running and starting well. My friend has many Whippet parts for sale if anyone is looking.

Greg, I am a member of WOKR as well as my friend and had not seen the forum previously, thanks for the link.
