We used elastic bands and grease to hold the needles in place.

Now we fitted the rear sleeve drive gears.

Once the transfer gear is far enough down over the needles , we could then pull out the elastic band and cut it off.

    1. Hi Slobodan

      That scale is for the boost/power setting of the engine ECB stands for “Economical Cruse Boost” on these engines
      you set the boost setting required not the throttle opening as the injection system opens the throttle automatically to
      achieve the required boost/power setting.

      Kind regards
