340 Jag Timing

Anyone know where the starting point is for timing on the stator plate.
There are 4 hash marks on the plate and one on the case.
My original plate was broken from disassembling it incorrectly.
It looks like it was between the 1st and 2nd hash mark.
Also, does the flywheel have to be removed every time you need to adjust the timing? I have the manual just not understanding it.

Thank you

Sometimes you can tell where the bolts were located on the stator originally if it hasn't been "adjusted" too many times. I usually start there. If not I guess the best thing would be put it in the middle, fire the engine up and put a timing light on it so see what you've got.

You can reach in through the holes in the flywheel to loosen the stator bolts, but I've found that if the engine is in the sled it's easier to pull the flywheel off to adjust the stator. Each one of those lines on the stator plate is 2 degrees, so once you know where your timing is set you can adjust the stator plate accordingly to get it set correctly. It's kind of a drawn out process to set , but once you get it it's done for good.

I used to race with hex clutches....

Thank you.
There is a worn area on both ends of the stator plate where the washers were on the plate.I guess I'll go with that for now.Not ready for start up yet,still assembling.
