hi to all
i wanted to check valve clearance and maybee rebuilt the cylinder head but i encounter withe aproblem in trying to bring the piston to TDC on my 01' wr426.
according to the manual while turn the crank CW, the mark "I" on the rotor should be align with stationary point. the problem is that I'm turning the crankshaft but i can't see any "I" mark on the rotor(i turn it several times slowly).

The "H" is there to check ignition timing wth a timing light. The "I" is to set cam timing.
