I may have fallen victim to one of the oldest mistakes...  TDC on the wrong
stroke...  Lets see - the crank turns twice for every cam revolution, right?
There is a notch like thingy (like a flat indentation between 2 teeth) way
around the other side - on the inside.  If the 'dot' on the outside isn't
used, then I am not on the power stroke, and I don't have to have a stroke
myself figuring out how this thing could run 20 degrees retarded...
I'll pull the plugs tommorrow (rotates much easier that way!) and recheck -
cause it ain't comin apart till I know how it should be!

BTW - the sprocket pn is 049 109 111B - anyone around can check their fische
for me and see if this is correct for an 87 tq (prob correct for every I5
ever made...)
