Default Setting Top Dead Center (TDC) on Early 1990's VM Motori 6cyl Turbo Diesels

Hello everyone,

I have twin early 1990's VM Motori 6cyl Turbo Diesels on my 1972 38' Egg Harbor. I am planning to send my Bosch 0460-416-014 Fuel Injector Pump out to get rebuilt but wanted to make sure I can set the Top Dead Center when it comes time to re-install it. Do any of you have experience setting TDC on early 90's VM Motori's? I have called just about every mechanic around and haven't had any luck with getting someone that could help. I would love to get some instructions on how to do this.

Thank you all in advance!
-Jeff

Check Boatdiesel. com
Some Volvo models had a locating pin on the bell housing and TDC was found when the crank was rotated and the pin dropped into a hole on the flywheel. Another way is to remove valve cover and rotate engine until intake and exhaust valves are closed. This is not very precise.
