Timing mark for LS engine

LS engines have no timing mark. The balancer is not keyed either. We made a pointer and filed a mark on the flywheel to indicate TDC on cylinder 1. Used a piston stop to get two references and filed the mark at the halfway point. Want to verify the engine computer has an accurate input for crankshaft position.

    Timing tab is cut out of a license plate. Aluminium will bend out of the way    without damage to the flexplate if it contacts
         Made the tab with a slot so it could be stored pulled back from the flexplate
        Painted the file mark white.

Traction bars for Dodge Dakota

Patterned after Caltrac, Assassin and Slide a link bars. Didn't use Heim style bar ends because I didn't want the rattle.
