Just some friendly machining advice: The timing marks are usually knurled, but I suspect these parts were stamped special after the radius was formed. They were probably stamped out by the thousands on a special stamping machine. If you put the marks on when it is flat, once the piece is bent, the marks will get deformed a bit and not necessarily true anymore. I can't say exactly how much they will deform, maybe not anything to be concerned with. Try a few samples and compare to an original. Like Dan said, not really used much anyway. I tried to use it once and ended up putting right back to where it was set. here's the deal. Somebody makes all of these parts. I don't know if new aftermarket units even have them. They just don't sell them all individually. Same with some carb parts. Kits don't have some of the finer brass jet screws and plugs but they are on new units.
