Can the valve timing of an A single be set without the head being in place, assuming no dot markings. The head is not available at this time. I am re-building an engine for a friend and have not done one before.
Regards Richard.

Can you find equal lift using the followers and some form of push rod? I seem to remember someone on the forum measuring equal lift on a post war via the rockers to save lifting the ufm

Actually I recall doing that on a post war Comet by putting longer flat top round bottom "push rods' down to the followers, but still had the head on.

While knowing nothing about the A engine, I think placing a ball onto each cam follower and having two dial clocks with flat face "tips" on their stem that should be allright for getting equal lift at TDC or 4 degrees before.
