I am currently rebuilding my FSI/BPY engine in my Mk5 Gti. I just installed the balance shaft/oil pump assembly but I need help with the oil pump timing chain installation. Does anyone know the proper way to time the oil pump/balance shaft assembly timing chain? And please, don’t tell me there is a dot on the balance shaft gear, because my gear does not have one! Apparently some engines do not have the dot on the gear. I have heard that cylinder #1 should be TDC and the balance shaft assembly should be BDC, but I am not 100% sure of this. What exactly is BDC for the balance shafts? Does this mean the counter weights are closer to the oil pan or closer to the crankshaft? There seems to be no information online about how to correctly time this assembly without the dot on the balance shaft gear…
