I was wondering if there is anyway to check the timing on 01 Disco 2? I don't see any external markings to use with a timing gun. Is there some other way to check the timing besides a visual look at the timing chain?


Thanks for any help.

Being "distributorless" there is no adjustment and no real marks. You could make your own mark for testing
What are you trying to accomplish?

If you are looking are the chain its self, there is a square on the gears that line up. When in time, and the bottom gears mark is pointing straight up, the top gears mark will be point straight down. And the gears move in a 2:1 ratio. The crank will turn 2 times for every time the cam turns.

find top dead center and mark the flywheel with white paint
hook up dial in timing gun and start car - stick in OBD reader with live data and see what the crank advance is sitting at as measured by the computer.
set advance on your dial in timing gun and point it at the flywheel
so long as the advance the engine is supposed to be seeing is dialed in on the timing gun the white mark should be where you originally marked it
if its not where you did the static timing mark then the chain is stretched :)
cheers
