Best place to hand-turn engine?

3563 Views 5 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  ejenner
Where is the best place to stick a wrench to hand turn a 16v? The discussion in my other thread about mixing distributors made me wonder where I should turn from? The crank pulley is a bit difficult to get to from the top of the engine...

Thanks!

Can disable the ignition system and turn over slowly using the starter motor. If you want to look into the engine bay while the engine is turning over you can stick a long stick through the eye on the key and turn the key using a hand through the window while you're watching the engine (for whatever reason)

If you really want to turn it by hand slowly then flywheel is the easiest way to get to it. You don't have to take off the clutch cover. You can leaver against the edge of the timing opening and turn the flywheel.
