    timing chain 4-tec installation ,,,,

    hi guys,
    I posted a thread earlier regarding timing chain timing,,
    I got some usefull info about locking the cam/crank with a locking pin..
    the problem is where the cam/ crank have to be locked into (holes locations?)
    so far, if I align the counterbalancer mark with the crankshaft mark, I will have the #3 piston(closest to front of ski) on tdc. the camgear has 2 lines,both with 1503 written under them.if i align these with the surface of the cylinderhead, I will have the hole in the cam gear flat aligned with the surface of the cylinderhead. meaning, if I pas a pin thru the camgear,it will also rest frimly on the cylinderhead surface. Am I doing things correct, or should I buy the manual as fast as possible.....

    Get the manual, on CD, usefull...here goes, the hole to pin the cam accesses from the last journal of cam by the cam sprocket, and the rockershaft will need to be off and u will need new bolts. There is a plug in the block under the intake at the rear, to pin the crank (thru hole and into counter-weight on crank. Pin 'em both and lock the bolts down for the cam gear then the tensioner is in and no slack in chain.....hope that helps

    thanks for the great info,,
    I had it all perfectly lined up.the 2 pins fell right into place.
    but it made me feel a lot easier by double checking with your technique.
    one more time, thanks for the info,,
