hey guys having a blonde moment here, putting another dizzy from an XF into my AU engine (for a race engine, cant use injection either so run an XF weber), anyhoo what rockers should be rocking when number 1 is at TDC and rotor is pointing at #1 pin on the dizzy been awhile since i last did it and cant remember, firing order is 153642 so should number 6 be rocking as you turn either side of number 1 at TDC???? T.I.A.

The easy way is to look at the mark on the cam gear which will be at 3 o'clock when 1 is at tdc.
