Once you are you can put the timing mark where you want on the crank pulley and your new pointer. Pete.
    I ended up using a piece of rubber hose that fitted tight into the plug hole and a whistle in the end! Worked quite well.

    the firing order I think changes in the later motors, so if you have dressed to look pre whenever it changed, you could be scratching your head wondering
