Turn the crankshaft a minimum of 45 degrees in
a clockwise direction. Slowly turn the crankshaft
in a counterclockwise direction until a maximum
reading is seen on the dial indicator. Adjust the
indicator up or down in the collet until the
revolution counter is at + .300 in. (Black
Numbers). Tighten the collet to hold the
indicator in this position. Loosen the bezel lock
and turn the bezel until the zero on the face of
the dial is in alignment with the hand. Tighten
the bezel lock.
Slowly turn the crankshaft in a counterclockwise
