Finding Top Dead Center (TDC)
Install the degree wheel on the PTO side of the engine with the numbers facing the block.
Make sure it's centered (doesn't wobble)
Make a pointer from a piece of stiff wire and attach it to one of the bolts on top of the engine.
Remove the spark plug and turn the engine so the piston is all the way up to the top of the
bore. Look through the spark plug hole and get the piston as close to the top as you can.
Loosen the bolt holding the degree wheel to the crankshaft and rotate the degree wheel so
the pointer is lined up with the TDC mark on the degree wheel.
Turn the engine clock wise about 60 degrees and install the dead stop[ in the spark plug
From this point on be careful not to turn the engine too fast and crash into the dead stop.
Turn the engine counterclockwise until the piston touches the dead stop. For explanation
purposes lets say it stops at 40 degrees. Turn the engine clockwise (the other direction)
until the piston hits the dead stop again. Lets say it stops at 20 degrees. Loosen the bolt
holding the degree wheel and rotate the degree wheel to 30 degrees and re-tighten the bolt.
In a perfect world zero degrees will be exactly TDC. In reality you will have to repeat the
process to fine tune things to get exactly TDC.
When you have everything just right the degree wheel will stop at exactly
30 degrees when you turn the engine in both directions

If for some reason you can't flush the engine
with gas make up some plumbing so you can
connect the WD 40 to a piece of fuel line.
Connect it to the fuel inlet of the carb, open
the float bowl drain and flush out the methanol.

and then with oil on the towel.
Not cleaning the rod throughly can result in disaster.
The grit left behind can cause the rod to seize to the crank.
Be sure to clean it throughly especially if you hone it.
The final test for cleanliness is to use oil on a towel and
manually clean the rod..
Blown Head Gasket
If you think the head gasket is leaking look between the air shield and the block. In
other words look where the head and block meet on the top side of the motor. If you
see dark streaks on the block surface the head gasket is leaking. If you squirt some
WD 40 in the carb look for smoke coming out from under the tin air shield it also
indicates a leak.
The head gasket can leak in other spots as well but the top side is the most common.
You should occasionally remove the header and re-torque the head bolt next to the

Extreme carbon build up on the back of the intake valve could
be caused by poor valve sealing at the valve seat. It could
also be cause by fuel vapor left in the intake port after
shutting the engine off.
Put the engine on TDC when you shut it off.
