MG MGA - can't engage reverse to static time
|I'm trying to set the motor at TDC for #1 cylinder to install the distributor. Motor and trans are rebuilt, motor hasn't run yet. I can bump (by push) the motor over to get #4 rocker arms "just rocking", but just over shoot TDC a bit. Than I can't seem to get the trans into reverse to bump it back. Any help appreciated.|
|George - just put he car in one of the forward gears and push it backwards. |
Cheers - Dave
|Take the plugs out, put in neutral and use the crank handle or a spanner similar to attached if no crank handle. |
|Thanks Dave, of course! Had a "senior moment" there I guess LOL...|
You got hold of a spanner then, makes life easy eh
|I made it Willie!|
