Thanks

I was on page 57 of the Honda 100-350cc OHC Singles 1969-1982 Service repair maintenance manual by clymer and it has a picture showing a “stationary pointer” at the bottom of the case.

See attached photos.  It may be for a different year.

The drawing in the Clymer book is for the CB/XL/SL series of engines which have a different set-up on the engine left side.  Those engines have an internal flywheel where the stator coils are outside the magnet, the genuine TL engines have an external flywheel where the stator coils are held inside the cover referred to by Naichuff with the rotor spinning around the outside of them.

What letters does the engine number start with?

 

Image result for tl125 alternator casing  This is what the TL casing should look like, the hole at the top is where the timing pointer should be.
