What is the best way. I can't even see the pointers on the crank, so what do you guys suggest? I followed the Helm method, but it doesn't say how to get to the crank (i.e. what parts have to be removed first, etc.) thanks.
what is to be removed besides the valve cover?
and instead of getting down n dirty with the crank juss pop the ignition, just have a friend turn the key in short burst to the position u desire!!!!!!!!!
I wouldn't use the ignition to try and turn the motor with the valve cover off. Remove your spark plugs and the motor turns easy with the crank. If you have a long enough extension for your socket wrench you will be able to turn the crank without needing to remove the wheel. I haven't tried the powersteering bolt method, maybe I will try that next time.
