MGBGTV8 - confirming the position of the Top Dead Centre Identification
Jim Livingstone's purpose of writing up this procedure as a V8NOTE was to provide guidance for fellow owners should they be concerned by the rumours they may have heard or read of inaccuracy in the timing markings on Rover V8 engines. The investigation was in part self education and Jim consulted a professional engine test engineer on how he carried out this confirmation. Usually this check is a once in a lifetime activity and not one requiring repetition. V8NOTE625
