    Shot in the dark! Gtx timing.

    Hi guys, I just want to check where the stock position is set on the cam timing sprocket. I scribed my chain and sprocket so I could put the chain on exactly the way it was but what I didn't take note of was where the sprocket bolts sit in the bolt holes as there is room for adjustment. I locked the crank and camshaft with the tools and lined up the 1503 marks with the head. And the bolts sat in the centre of the holes in the sprocket. If any one could be kind enough to take a photo of the side of there sprocket so I can see where th bolts align in the holes I would be very grateful.

    Im just in the process of elimination with my funny idle and hard starting and this will tick one of them off the list!

    Thanks jamie

    Here is a timing shot on disassembly, stock 07GTX. Don't worry about the guy with the power drill.

    I will do mate.i still need to check the timing today but when when I timed it up I centered the sprocket bolts and as you can see from the picture above the bolts are more to the right of the sprocket holes.
