I guess I need to go look at that thread again..
but to the bottom line...
the only way the FSM says to check for setting the timing is to use the 2mm movement of the intake valve on the number one cylinder.. as the cam mark is only for the initial BUILDING of the ENGINE ( read ballpark or correct quadrant.... )... not accurate for later measurements .... particularly when youb are having a problem having used that as a reference point....
If it was installed wrong... that would be how you check it... many a good mechanic has installed new chains and found ( most probably by not keeping constant tension on the chain the whole process ) that the injection pump was off by too many degrees to set by just moving the IP body in the normal way.....
