    Cam retainer

    My cam retainer isn't sitting perfectly flush with the head. I seem to remember it sitting flush...? Is something off?

    okay, i'll double check its not backwards. I slid it forward and it dropped down but not to flush.

    I tried all different ways and the way it sits is the only way it slides in at all. The cut-out is facing the rear of the craft.

    OKay awesome! For some reason I thought that it sat perfectly flat or recessed so it wouldnt bounce out of there.

    Turn it around. Your rocker arm shaft has a notch cut in it to clear it, other wise the rocker shaft bolt holes won't line up and your cam won't be in the right place.

    The rocker shaft holds it down. You will see when you put your shaft in.

    Well this isnt good, after I got the cam set and timed I realized I left this chain guide out....So do I have to pull the head back off?
