Don't you hate it when a simple job turns episodic. Glad you found someone at a dealer that would talk to you. I'm not even doing the job and it gave me a headache. Just watch those knuckles! EDIT.......Damn just saw your latest post. If you look at the aformentioned photo of the timing pin installed and the crankshaft position with the #1 piston at TDC look at the position of the crankshaft web/counterweight of #2 cylinder which has the piston at BDC. It sure looks to me that with the piston just above BDC that if you intall the pin and then rotate the crank counterclockwise that the "large" part of the web/counterweight (rear) will come in contact with the installed pin. Don't you think? Seems to me that there has to be a location on the crank that'll come into solid contact with the pin.
