This topic arose elsewhere, on rollsroyceforums.com, from someone trying to set the timing on his 20/25.
In this set of timing instructions, clearly a Crewe TSD scanned, in the TIMING - TO CHECK section step number two reads: Adjust the tappets of No. l cylinder to the flywheel marking clearance specified for the engine.
In the same step on the RROC-Australia Pre-War Library instructions it reads: Adjust the tappets of No. l cylinder to the running clearance specified for the engine.
Obviously, these can't both be correct. I'm presuming that all of the timing setup is done using the flywheel marking clearances and then everything is set back to the running clearances. If that's the case, the library version appears to have a major typo.
Can someone definitively clarify?
