Greetings All,

Simply a quick question, hopefully not a quick answer so I can understand the impacts fully. I have a 1980 300TD with of course a 5 cyl. diesel. If the camshaft timing aligns at the top end but the crank, (harmonic balancer) timing is not at 0 TDC what is the effect on both sides of the spectrum, either retarded 10 degress or advanced 10 degrees ? Advanced I would imagine the valves would be bent or toast and if retarded by the same degree or more would cause what to happen? Also what impact would this have on the fuel injection pump, spay to soon, too lat or what?
