Hey everyone. I was replacing the main bearings on my '52 8n. In the process the front of the crankshaft dropped a little and I lost the timing with the cam. Is ther a way to find the timing mark on the cam gear without removing the timing cover? I can see a couple tooth faces but without having an idea of where the mark is I can't seem to find it. I'm can pull the cover but I'd really like to avoid it.

Hello.
If you turned the crank after it dropped, and I suspect you might have,
then you may as well pop the cover and save yourself a lot of frustration.
If perchance you did not turn it then you should be able to lift it back up
and have it match. good luck to you

It definitely turned, I really don't want to have to wait for another gasket to arrive and dealing with the distributor timing and everything with that cover.

Just a "maybe" here. Pull gov and see if a very thin mirror will slide between cam gear & timing cover.

I wasn't having a really smart day and loosened all 3 bearings at once. I pulled the timing cover and got it properly set, after I get a new gasket for the timing cover I'll finish it up.
