Hi all, Can anyone explain the total absence of any timing marks on the flywheel of my South African built S1 fulvia coupe? When I changed the timing chain recently I had to resort to feeling for TDC with a screwdriver down the spark plug hole! There is normally a "stepped" part in front of the ring gear with the marks on but mine appears to be flush.

Mine is an S1 and it has no timing marks - just a blob of yellow paint. I think all S1's were like that ?

Series 1 Fulvias have a timing mark on a tooth of the flywheel which looks like an O. To time the engine you line this up with the 1|4 mark on the crankcase next to the aperture. For ignition timing you line the mark up with A|A mark on the crankcase.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for that. Unfortunately My garage is full of another project so I will have to wait for some daylight and see if it ever stops raining long enough for me to have another look!
