There is a TDC locking pin that slips through the flywheel and trans bellhousing. If you need to set the cams to TDC for a rebuild, good luck finding that tool for less than a million dollars.

Read about my Frankenmotor Project and see how an M50 becomes an S50!!!

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.
