Thanks guys for all the help and pictures put after two hours of looking for the dots on the governor gear and 18 tooth idler, the results are-----The gov gear has one dot and a bit of white paint on a single tooth. The idler gear has two white teeth and two dots and I swear on my ,well something< that there are no more dots on the idler. Two of us looked for two hours running it round and round about 50 times. So now what. I am exhausted with this problem. Remember, the darn thing ran before I decided to rebuild the gov. Now, only short bursts of explosions from vapor builup in the muffler HELP HELP HELP Is the anyone near Wadsworth, Medina Copley or Akron Ohio that can fix this???????? Henry
I'm one of those willing to lend a hand and I'm confident that it is possible for a couple of other people to help. Send me a PM with your phone number and we can make some arrangements.

Are you looking at the backside of the gear thru the mag/distributer side? The punch mark is on the back, you should be able to see it with a flashlight when the number 1 piston is at top dead center. Line the governor punch mark up to it. Make sure your valves are timed correctly, time your mag or distrubuter and you should be good.

Do what olebluegranossboy said. Bring the engine up exactly on TDC with #1 on compression. Look for the single mark on the idler gear. If you can't find, pretend it is there. Insert the governor gear and verify the distributor drive lugs are at 2 and 8 o'clock. They should be 35 degrees off of horizontal. If they aren't, pull the governor gear back out, turn it one tooth and try again. Do that until you get as close as possible to 35 degrees.
Shouldn't he be looking for a dot in the valley between two teeth on the idler gear?
