Default Bamford SD1

Im in the very early stages of resorting a Bamford SD1.

I intend stripping it down completely, or at least what needs doing and repainting etc.

I have checked all the obvious things, dismantled and cleaned the fuel system, pump and injector working etc. Oil ok, tappets, pushrods, valves free and moving, governor linkages freed and moving. Good compression.

Just out of curiosity i wanted to see if it ran before the strip down process. Puffs of smoke from the exhaust on cranking but no start.

Quick question about the fuel timing. In the picture I assume the silver coloured wheel on the right of the pump mount controls the fuel timing and is locked in by the nut? Turning which way retards or advances the timing? Ive cleaned up one flywheel enough to find a TOP marking and a bit before of after (depending on which way youre looking) a line marking,fuel timing line?

I know theres plenty more to check but wanted to get this right first.

Any info or help appreciated.
