In the process of taking the 1933 8-105 apart I was thinking about re-assembly and when I got to the timing chain I could not figure out how it gets aligned, I see makes on the gears and 2 on the chain but no matter how I spin it I can not figure out what I will need to align on when I re-assemble. I also looked in the manual and could not find a process of this.

How do you align the crank and cam when installing a new timing chain?

I went down and looked at mine which came out of a running engine and there are only 12 links, I did not think they would run very well being a tooth off??? This one ran pretty good before it came apart.

Also how much play should there be in a good chain?
