Does the three position chart system work as well as the 90* chart. I used the three position system, it seems to run ok but I just want to make sure it runs the best it can. The system I used was a lot easier because I adjusted them by myself.
Thanks.

You can always get a cylinder so the valves are in the split overlap position (both valves open) and set the valves on the cylinder that's four down in the firing order.

What happened to the 3 position chart?

I use this procedure on everything - solid or hydro. EOIC works, you don't need a chart or a firing order, just go one cylinder at a time. This is specifically directed at the questions I used to get about setting hydros but I use the same on solids and get it done.

Pick a cylinder.

Bump the motor until the Exhaust valve starts up. Intake is now on base circle.

Loosen the intake lock nut.

WAIT a minute or so, to let the plunger relax.

Twirl intake pushrod between thumb and forefinger (hold gently) and tighten the lock nut until you feel the pushrod stop turning. A little practice is all it takes. You will know - it stops right away, unless you are turning it with pliers. This is zero lash.

Tighten locknut 1/2~3/4 turn.

Bump the motor until the Intake is almost down. Exhaust is now on base circle.

Loosen the exhaust lock nut.

WAIT a minute or so, to let the plunger relax.

Twirl exhaust pushrod between thumb and forefinger (hold gently) , etc...

Tighten locknut 1/2~3/4 turn.

Repeat as necessary.
