Harmonic balancer timing mark alignment

The outer of my harmonic balancer is slipping. From what I figure the timing mark should align with the key on the crank. Is that right?

I have attached a pic showing what I mean.

The outer has a habit of slipping.

Re: Harmonic balancer timing mark alignment

Go figure, the manual is useless. I can tell you how to line it up with the rocker cover off, but that's probably not much help.

Surely someone else will know though.
