I worked it out when I got my M20, counting teeth on the reluctor wheel when the engine is set to TDC is the easiest way to do it. It should be set to 84, this is the correct figure. The O|T mark is...

Sell it and come back whining about how you shouldn't have sold it and they're so expensive now. That seems to be a r3v tradition.

There is no inherent advantage to a dished piston, the only reason the dish is there is to reduce compression ratio. Why would he recommend it? Because it's what he's used to or is conventional...

Oh well. My mistake. I see a bunch of spokes and think "alpina." Looks similar enough to judge how they look on the car imo.
