General description
The timing gears are stamped with timing marks (A) to ensure that they are assembled correctly. The stamped teeth of the crankshaft, camshaft and fuel pump gears will be aligned with the idler gear when number 1 piston is at top dead centre (TDC) on the compression stroke. The marked teeth of the idler gear may not necessarily be aligned in this position, because of to the different speeds at which the gears rotate. Perkins 900 Series Diesel Engines.

TDC on number 1 cylinder can be found by the alignment of holes in the backplate and the flywheel.
The two types of fuel injection pump available are both timed at TDC on the compression stroke of number 1 cylinder. There is no timing mark on the rear face of the timing case, but there is a mark on the flange of the fuel injection pump.
Both fuel injection pumps have a lock screw (B1) that locks the shaft. When the lock is applied before the pump is removed, it is not necessary to time the pump to the engine if the crankshaft has not been rotated.

There is a slot (A1) in the left side of the backplate, seen from the rear, to give access to the starter ring. A suitable lever (A2) can be used through the slot to rotate the flywheel.
4 Insert the locking pin (A4) into the hole (A3) below the slot in the backplate. Continue to rotate the crankshaft clockwise slowly until the pin enters a hole in the flywheel. The engine is now set at TDC number 1 cylinder, compression stroke.
