Yes, was wondering if there was any easier way to do it without tearing off the valve cover.  I guess that is the "easiest" way
and it seems the VC gasket doesn't necessarily need replacement after doing so, which is why I hesitated pulling the VC in the
first place.  Now with a painted mark on the sprockets, I can just use the TDC mark on the flywheel to set things up for pump
timing (which was when I first ran into the dilema).
