Hi All,

After changing timing chains wanted to set the static timing as the car was having serious hot start problem.
Got the engine to TDC and insert pin in flywheel and the dial gauge indicates 0.56 mm. Then loosened the inj pump mounting bolts and rotated the pump towards engine and even at the maximum travel towards the engine I could get only 0.73mm on the dial gauge.
As I could not get it improved set it at that point. But the hot start remains a problem and a random engine stall when idling. The matter is killing me as with the hot start when the engine stops I can't get it started. Now I'm scared to take the car out.

your advice is appreciated.
