jaylael Posted March 4, 2008 Author Report Share Posted March 4, 2008 Reminds me of a good story. A good friend of mine who has worked in bike shops for many years, fielded a telephone call from a customer asking for advice on how to find top dead center for adjusting the valves. My friend explained that "You need to insert a screwdriver into the spark plug hole and turn the engine over until the screwdriver is pushed out as far as it will go", thus locating tdc. He never mentioned anything about the compression stroke, which may have been helpful. Ten minutes later he gets a phone call back from the guy, asking, "Once you put the screwdriver in the spark plug hole and kick the engine over, how do you get the screwdriver out?"
