Default Timing K662 Kohler

Need some help guys,, I took the mag off of the engine today to clean the points in the Wico Mag. Went to put it together realized I didnt mark Timing gear. Someone else marked a " V " in the mag but no reference on the gear. Flywheel has two marks on it but I dont no where to begin. Thanks for any help.

There should be a mark on the magneto gear, and coresponding markings on the timing gear teeth in the engine.

Otherwise line up the "V" with the rotor (which I assume is a point in rotation just prior to, or at the mid point of the points opening.), Bring the engine up to top dead center on compression stroke, and you should be good to go.

John, I guess I should have mentioned that the motor is a twin opposed cyl engine. Does it matter which piston before top dead center. Also, the electrical components are very bad and deteriorated, do you think It would be ok to take the electrical box off the top of the generator and relace it with a newer type, Just Curious and would it work. Thanks for your replies Smoke
