60's 3000 diesel. Has a bit of valve chatter and I'd like to adjust. However, I can find the timing marks nor know the easiest way to make sure number 1 is on exhaust or compression. May have found the inspection slip on the back side of oil pan on right side of tractor?

Thoughts?

Watch the valves as you turn the engine when the exhaust valve closes and the intake just starts to open the piston is at tdc exhaust. Mark the front pulley and turn the engine one round. Repeat on other cylinders. If it was a 4 or 6 cylinder you could watch the companion cylinder.

Ok, I was going off the manual, it showed to put cyl 1 tdc compression and do a couple then tdc cyl. 1exhaust and do the rest. But pretty sure I just made it worse without definitely finding tdc. I used a rod and stopped when piston was up

When the exhaust starts to open adjust the intake, when the intake starts to close adjust the exhaust. This will get you on the base circle of the cam for each cylinder.

So from front to back.... What's the order of intake/exhausts?

Like:
1 intake
2 exhaust
3 exhaust
4 intake
5intake
6 exhaust

It's a 3 cylinder diesel. Just realized I didn't state that.

Never been around a 3 cylinder except once, put points in one , with a loader on in 0 weather. What a pain in the b-t. Just another reason I never cared for the blue ones, even though I have 5200. And the day is awful close when I can't get up on it anymore. Another advantage of the "golden years"!
