Default Timing Trouble and other stuff

im wondering if someone can help me woth a problem i have. i sent the flywheels and crank for my stover to the sandblaster with specific instructions on what to blast (flywheels) and what NOT to blast (bearing journals,pinion gear, ect). well after 2 weeks of waiting , i call the guy and he tells me his machine didn't have the capacity so he sent it to a buddy. well come to find out his buddy blasts large stuff. mostly bridges and such! on top of that he used a super course media AND never recieved my instuctions. needless to say that the timing punch mark on the pinion has been TOTALLY erased! there are only about 20 teeth on the pinion so i'll find the right set up eventually i guess. any help would be great. sorry so long

If you will rotate the cam gear until the highest part of the cam lobe is pointing straight up then install the crankshaft with the rod throw pointing straight up,you should be within a couple of teeth either way.Ignitor should trip at or slightly before TDC and exhaust valve should begin to open at BDC.
