I think the 500 has the same engine as a 3020. I don't have the information that you need for timing, but a 3020 manual might be easier to find. The 3020 diesel used a 270 cubic inch, four cylinder. I'm sure that someone with the correct information will come in on your post at some point.

By the way, welcome to Green TractorTalk.

I tried to respond to this post a few days ago. I guess it didn't go through. How much of the engine was apart? There are several things to time on this engine. Can you give me a little more info?
You can look for the manual or just ask the dealer for that! Surely, they can guide you..
