Default 1929 Briggs & Stratton FH technical questions

Ok, after you remove the crankshaft there is a gear visible. The gear has a cam on back that moves the exhaust valve lever. There is also another lever with a hole in the end of it. My question is what does this lever do and what goes in the hole. Also when I put the crankshaft back in how do I time it with the exhaust valve?

OK, first question. The second lever is there to work the oil trough pump up and down sow it pumps oil. There should be a short, round shaft about 3 1/2" long and turned down at the ends to fit into the holes. Now for timing.
With the levers in place, insert the exhaust valve push rod through the small hole in top of the crankcase so that the flat end of the rod rests on the upper lever. Then place the cam gear on it's stud so that the cam lobe is toward the crankcase wall, between the two levers.
Place finger on top of push rod and press lightly. Then rotate the cam gear to the right, or clockwise until you find the point where push rod just starts to rise. With the cam gear set in this position, insert crankshaft, gear end first and with crankpin 10 degrees to the right of center line of cylinder and almost in line with the top magneto screw hole. Engine will then be in correct time. PER BRIGGS AND STRATTON REPAIRMAN'S MANUAL.
Piece of cake (with just a little practice). It is not as hard as it sounds.
