Setting static timing is easy. Remove the timing

TDC ( top dead center ) on the compression stroke of the front cylinder.
The TDC timing mark should be properly aligned in the inspection hole.

while rotating the base plate in a clockwise direction. Lock the base
plate in position. Confirm the crankshaft is still at TDC. The timing
should be correct.
