Know your tired of ACCT questions but....

I know everyone is tired of ACCT questions but I can't seem to find this on the forum anymore. Guess I don't know how to search well enough. Question is, I'm replacing my ACCT's with new ACCT's this weekend. Thought I read that you have to have the piston TDC. Is this true with new ones that are suppose to be prewound until you install them. Also I thought I read how to find TDC but again I can't find it. Something about taking the side cover off and there are markings inside to align to. Thanks in advance.

That's what I was hoping for! Should only take a few minutes to do the job then once I get to it!

x2, 10 minute job on each side if that. you will need a small screwdriver to twist the spring on install till the housing lays flush on the engine, tighten the nuts and then release the spring and install the capscrew!

Be gentle with the cap screw. The threads in the acct case can be ruined easily.

Where did you get the new ACCTs? How much did you pay for them?

That is the way to go, with the mcct's. Some times even the new acct's will not last long.
