9-Dec-09 Tonight, the last shop night of the year before I take holiday for three weeks, we begin timing the engine. We block the axle boxes up with 1/4" square stock to approximate the wheel positions with the frame fully loaded with the boiler. After Centering the Piston in the cylinder, we use a dial indicator to find forward dead center.
