    Does my Timing look okay? Pictures inside!

    How does my timing look? Does it need to go clockwise a tooth? The camshaft, crankshaft tools are in. Also the chain tension was screwed on when I took this picture.

    As long as the crank , cam are locked adjuster installed and you can install the bolts its timed it does not matter where the 1503 marks are.

    Just make sure the three cam bolts screw in easily by hand. If the bind a little on the way in you could be out a tooth. It explains this in the manual.

    Good idea. Post numbers at full cam advance and full retard, that will quickly confirm whether you are good to go.

    New bolts! Wait..........., did I just say new bolts! OH BROTHER here we go again! Have never chased the threads on the cam but have always used new bolts since i'm one of the "lazy people who dont want to take the time". This has also been debated before, I also remember others postings problems with using the old ones and the bolts not staying torqued and the cam/gear slipping. Have fun with this one boyz!!!
