    camshaft is about 12oclock u should have a dot or something on there to
    let you know to line it up with a mark some place on the cover,remove
    the spark plug number one and time it up the old way .

    Hi,
    Nope, as XUs tend to be timed half-way between top and bottom dead centres
    (all pistons on the same level).

    Regards,
