As for the timing mark on the crankshaft, I would suggest you get the secondary shaft in position and then count forward 7 full links and you should be able to see the mark on the crankshaft and confirm it. Then if necessary re-punch the mark or put a score line on the crankshaft so you know which tooth to use for alignment.

Looks like you made a good decision to replace the primary and secondary chains. I am surprised that they needed to be done. Maybe the previous owner used cheap oil. Some of us here are partial to Shell Rotella T6 15W40 . It's actually a diesel motor oil but it has the MA and MA2 ratings for motorcycles. The zinc additive they put in it for the heavy duty diesel engines is excellent for wear resistance. The MA and MA2 rating for motorcycles is a rating to identify oils rated for use in engines that also have clutches so these oils will cooperate with the clutch pack regarding shifting and slipping.
I counted seven links back from the mark on the output shaft and couldn't see the mark on the crankshaft.
This motor has already been disassembled, the two axles may not have been synchronized when it was assembled.
Starting from aligning the timing mark in "T" would it be possible to find out where the crankshaft mark is?


I usually use mineral-based Sunoco 4T GP oil on my classic motorcycles.

When I bought this bike I had the crankcase full of oil mixed with water and I used the oil I use in my tractors to flush and clean the inside of the engine. It is an oil that can be used in engines, transmission boxes and hydraulic brakes. I use it in diesel and gasoline engines and transmissions of all types of machinery on my farm.

I just looked up the invoice for the 2 chains I got from Ramsay. 1 chain was 230 CAD and the 2nd was 250 CAD when I bought them in April 2016.
MCG's price is a good price and for you, shipping to Barcelona shouldn't be too bad.

I just made the bank transfer.
403 euros for the two chains plus shipping.

A month ago I ordered the Mikuni carburetor repair kit.
Today it arrived directly from Taiwan.

We continue completing the puzzle.

I spent the night searching the forum for some clue on how to align the crankshaft with the primary shaft since I have only been able to find the mark of the primary shaft, I cannot find the mark of the crankshaft.

I found this photo in an old thread.

Can anyone confirm if those are the marks I should follow?
