probably about as easy as timing through primary chain cover, less work.

well, remove the inspection cover and see if you can see the engine rotor or sprocket. if so, find the marks you want and line them up. use some spray cleaner and clean off a spot on the case and opposite to rotor/sprocket. a good high contrast epoxy is good and a long artist brush. let dry. now you can time without c/c pressure in your face but beware of the spinning primary chain!!!
