1923 Stutz T head 6 cylinder engine in a fire engine. We broke a shaft that an idle gear runs on at the front of the motor. Ruined a gear along with the shaft so had to have them made. The engine had been turned and everything moved so we don"t know how to get it in time. Timing marks don"t seem to exist on the gears etc. We have the front cover off and so it the pan so it"s easy to see all of the components, just don"t know where they are supposed to be to be right.

Any internal combustion engine is designed to fire at TDC. (+ or -). Most engines are timed on #1 cly. but some are not. You will have to determine which cylinder it is supposed to be timed on. Here is how to set it for #1 cyl....Rotate engine till #1 intake valve opens and closes, verify that the piston is now on TDC, verify that BOTH valves are fully closed. Now install timing gear so distributor rotor points to cap tower of #1 CYL. After installing gear rotate engine TWO complete revolutions and re-check that piston is TDC, valves are CLOSED and rotor is pointing to #1 cyl... re-assemble and set timing according to specs.....

Are you talking about ignition timing, or do you mean timing the camshaft drive gears to the crankshaft ?
If you mean camshaft timing, turn the camshaft or camshafts so the exhaust valve on that cylinder is just about closed and the intake valve on that same cylinder is just starting to open. set the gears so the camshaft is at that overlap point with the piston at TDC.
That should get you very close or right on.
