There should be notches or a sticker on the side of the can indicating the timing. To adjust the timing undo the screws holding the endbell down and rotate it around to another notch/ marking

For all V2 endbells there is a scretch on it,somewhere on one of the screws.

If there is no marking on your can.Then maybe you could buy a motor timing jig to help you adjust your timing accurately.If adjust too much you might destroy your motor.As by giving too much timing,the temp will be high and there will be increase in arcing....

You don't need a jig to set the timming.

Usually 0 degree timming is when the screw is just between the magnets (this is not 100% correct but close enough)

So then you messure in from that point to where the screw is, 8mm should be close to 24 degree if i'am not completely wrong.

But how much timming you should have is a other question thats is so much harder to answer in my point of view.

If you place the motor on the table in front of you with pinion end pointing towards you then the endbell screw should be to the right of the vent holes in the can.
If the screw lines up with the edge of the vents then this will give you about six degrees of timing - every 1mm beyond that will increase the timing by three degrees.
