Question about 1982 Yamaha XZ 550
Hi,the piston should be at top dead centre,there will be a mark on the crank to indicate this,the inlet and exhaust valves shold be both fully closed,there is normally a mark on each camshaft which normally lies in a straight line with the tappet cover,once you have them all lined up put the chain on and assemble the tensioner,,,turn the motor over by hand to make sure nothing is binding and that all the valves are opening and closing correctly,hope this helps...cheeers
