SOURCE: specs

Well I just looked up the specs for you for the 2.7 ltr. I hope this is what you want.
Cam Caps 105 in.lbs.
Cam Sprocket 250 in.lbs.
Crank Dampener 125 ft.lbs.
Cylinder Head Cover 105 in.lbs.
Here is an illustration of the timing chain set up. Be aware these marks are lined up with the three sets of plated links on the chain. You should easily identify them if you have a new chain. You may have to clean an old chain to see them.
Good luck with this and let me know how it goes for you.

SOURCE: need diagram or spec to set cam position

if you look at the back edge of the camshafts you will see a slot, this slot is off center on the shaft end, you are supposed to use a special tool and turn each shaft to where that slot is flat across the cylinder head, then insert the tool (flat piece of steel) into the slots, the tool hold the cams in place while you reset and put on the belt. You can find this diagram in any Haynes or Chilton manual, availiable at your local parts store, autozone should be able to print it out for you from AllData for free, hope this helps, let me know

Was getting gas & spark & now no spark on any plugs

Crankshaft position sensor , possibly !
Crankshaft Position (CKP) Sensor
The crankshaft position (CKP) sensor is a three wire sensor based on the magneto resistive principle. A magneto resistive sensor uses two magnetic pickups between a permanent magnet. As an element such as a reluctor wheel passes the magnets the resulting change in the magnetic field is used by the sensor electronics to produce a digital output pulse. The PCM supplies a 12-volt, low reference, and signal circuit to the CKP sensor. The sensor returns a digital ON/OFF pulse 24 times per crankshaft revolution.
There are a lot of videos on youtube on testing crankshaft position sensors an Cam sensors !

Have got a joe hunt magneto and i want to put it into my triumph 750 1970 model is there a diagram for this or is there instructions on how to install it

I ran one of those on several 60s-70s Triumphs.....great ignition!

Both plugs fire at the same time so there is no left/right to worry about.

Remove spark plugs and gap .018. Remove timing cover (right hand side of engine) over battery ignition points.
Disconnect and tape (insulate) all battery connected wires. Better yet, unhook battery hot wire from battery terminal.
Hold breaker cam in opposite direction of rotation (advanced position) and rotate engine until the points on #1 cylinder just start to open. Note: Use .0015 feeler gauge.
Remove breaker plate, breaker cam advance mechanism, and dowel pin from internal taper if your model used a dowel pin to position breaker cam and advance mechanism. CAUTION Do Not Rotate Engine. If engine is rotated, reverse rotation until piston is down and the cylinder at least one inch before top center on the compression stroke.
Rotate engine in normal direction of rotation until piston is 5/16 from top center on compression stroke. Install magnetos adaptor plate and adaptor shaft in cam taper. DO NOT TIGHTEN SHAFT. CAUTION 1963 to 1970 Triumph unit construction twins have a different length taper on shaft and internal threads are dissimilar. Suggest checking threads and taper. 1963 to 1970 bolt has BSF 1/4 x 26 threads. 1971 and later bolt had 1/4 x 28 thread. Early shafts are marked with the letter "A". Later shafts are marked with "B".
NOTE: Some applications will require drilling and tapping engine with 1/4 x 20 for better security of magneto mounting adapter. Some customers with severe service report that they heli aced adaptor to cam cover with approximately one inch length bead, top and bottom for security.
Remove Magneto cover. With shaft slightly loose in taper mount Magneto so that points are just starting to open and bolts are approximately in center of slot (for timing adjustment later).
Carefully remove Magneto and tighten center bolt in shaft. Re-install Magneto and time. Install cover and plug wires. Hook up ground wire to a separate kill switch to ground only. DO NOT HOOK ANY BATTERY CURRENT TO MAGNETO.

I need to install a magneto on a 57 xl harley sportster. I need to know the procedure to accomplish this. Thanks.

Been a long time since I've done one of those. Let me brush some cobwebs aside and see if I remember how I did it. The magneto fired Sportster engine was equipped with a mechanical left handlebar ignition advance mechanism. You retarded the timing, got the engine fired, and then advanced the timing using the left handlebar grip that was similar to the throttle. When installing the magneto, make sure you install it with it in it's retarded position which is with the body of the magneto at it's maximum clockwise rotation when viewed from the top of the magneto.

The manneto drive shaft will turn as you drop the unit into the cases. You must turn the drive shaft to a position so that when you drop the magneto into the cam gear case it rotates to a point to where it is just about to open the points. I remove the timing plug of the engine and bring the front cylinder up on Top Dead Center on the compression stroke with the mark in the middle of the hole. Then I'd connect an ohm meter, a "buzz box" or simply use a piece of celophane wrap off a cigarette pack placed between the closed points to give me an indication of exactly when the points began to open. I'd rotate the mag until the points just barely opened with the Front Cylinder TDC mark in the hole. This is setting your initial timing at Top Dead Center on the front cylinder. Once the engine is started, you can set the timing using a timing light to set it the max advance timing to the front cylinder advanced timing mark. With the engine running, advance the timing using the handlebar grip. To adjust the front cylinder timing, connect a timing light to the front cylinder spark plug wire. Shine the light in the hole, loosen the clamp that holds the mag and adjust the magneto position until the front cylinder advanced timing mark is in the hole. Tighten the clamp. When you kill the engine, you turn the handlebar grip back to ****** the magneto. Usually, this results in an initial retarde timing of about 5-7° BTDC.

I hope this helps.

How to time the 12H802 modle lawn mower

This is the B & S 6 HP engine. There are multiple versions of this engine:


and several others.

The timing is fixed. It is not changeable. Timing can change if the flywheel key is partially sheared because the position of the magnetos' flywheel magnet is rotated forward or back from it's usual position. That is the only way the timing can change.

Now if we are talking valve cam timing. Align the dot holes on the crankshaft and cam shaft gear. The valves should be closed with piston at top of the cylinder.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Won't start - timing procedure

Not sure if you mean ignition timing or cam timing, ignition's not adjustable, cam timing should have a 't' mark on the magneto flywheel, usually on hondas there's a large & small screw in bung in the magneto cover, the mark can be seen through the small one, with it lined up to the mark the cam bolts should either be horizontal or vertical to the head, with the cam lobes both facing evenly downwards away from the rockers.
