We are working to restore an old Regal 2-cylinder marine engine and have some technical questions. The pistons are 6.75" dia and the stroke is 7.25". There are two spark plugs each side, and the magneto fires in even rotation order. The magneto is driven 1:1 with the crank. The cam gear was broken and so we lost the timing. Now the gear is repaired but we can't understand how to re-set the timing. The crank gear is 4", the cam gear is 8", but there is a 6" intermediate gear, which carries the timing mark (we think, as this thing is very rusty inside). We also are having trouble freeing the clutch assembly and could use some guidance, particularly a repair manual. Any help for us?
