Timing Tape Flew Off Harmonic Balancer

  1. I only have a notch for TDC so bought another strip of tape. Wondering if anyone puts paint dabs on the balancer for 10 degrees, 15 degrees etc? I am anticipating this tape will fly off too at some point. Suggestions?

  2. My suggestion...

    Remove it, mask it off, prime and paint just the outside edge then use a scribe and ruler to make your marks.
  3. i take a triangle file and make a light groove at top dead center then paint it white . it always shows up.
  4. The balancer is Ford blue. I will use red paint dots to see how that works and use the timing tape as the measure for the degrees without actually taping it in place. I guess I can just paint the numbers at the marked spots. Thank you everyone!
