Re: Timing belt trick

  The hole I used on my '87 (MC engine) was right on top of the bell housing.
You needed quite a long bolt to get to the flywheel. You can see that the bell
housing is higher at that point, thus more thickness between the outer edge
and the flywheel. I ended up using a starter bolt (from a VW) but I heard that
a transmission bolt also works. The diameter of the bolt I used was something
like 3/8ths or 5/16ths of an inch (just a guess).
