RXP Timing too simple?
I had a valve job done and now getting everything back together. The head shop positioned my cam in the tdc position so the cam shaft lock tool slipped right in. I then positioned the lower gears to have the hash marks lined up together with horizonally and pointing at each other. I then positioned the cam sproket with the timing chain on it so the 1503 marks were lined up perfectly to the head edge. I bolted everything together.... Is that it? That was so simple.

You really need to have the crank locked in place with the locking tool.... or at least look in the hole, and make sure it's in the right spot. By lining up the balance shaft - crank marks.... you could still be a few degrees off on the crank position. Also... make sure the tensioner is installed before you tighten the cam sprocket bolts.

Where is the crank locking access point on my 2005 RXP block? Do I have to remove the PTO housing?

It's just below, and a little further forward from the chain tensioner. You don't need the PTO cover off to lock the crank... but you do need the intake manifold off.
