i don't see why you need 2 dail gauges to do it.

just use one. put the thing on TDC then use the same gauge on the cam to messure the lift..
if it's wrong move the cam and the crank will stay still.


hell you don't even need one to get TDC. get on old spark plug knock the guts out of it and weld or braze a bolt down the hole
wind the engine one way till it stops and mark the ballancer the wind it the other way and mark the ballancer. TDC is half way between the 2 marks

Yeah, that is another way to do it, but it aint as accurate.

And having one for tdc makes it quicker also, the timing is farly important to get rite.

finding TDC how i just said it, will be perfect every time. unless your blind

even with a dail gauge there is dwell time of a few degrees
my way there is no dwell time at all
