    Cam timing experst needed

    I am attempting to retime my engine and would like to kniow if it seems right or not. I just had a set or ferrea valves put in the head so I dont want to f them up.

    This pic is with the cam and crank locked and tensioner installed. If i remove the crank tool the hole in the crank is centered. I cant check compression yet as my rocker shaft bolts wont be here until tomorrow.

    Looks perfect bro (and just like mine) based on what you stated. When I got mine back together compression was 135 140 140.

    Try one tooth to the right to center the holes in the slots and see how it looks.

    Did they deck the head? I would go back one tooth to the left and call it a day. Then you can fine tune with compression.

    I not sure if the head has been decked. I suspect it has been decked.

    Just a quick question. By going left 1 tooth, does that mean he is retarding it?
