    cam timing bolts HELP!!!

    Hey guy's I looked at my cam timing last night and was going to retard it but it was all the way. My question is when I tightened the bolts I didn't take them all the way out because I didn't want to drop them. But I put red lock tight only on the last 5 threads and then tightened the bolts down. But now I'm concerned that that may not be enough on the threads. The head of the allen had it all around it almost like a washer. That should hold it fine I would think but I'm second guessing my self. What do you think?

    so somefun...our timing is already fully retarded on our boats? I'm really gettin' the itch to buy that ECU. I wonder if I had to choose which would be more bang for the buck, RR S/C impeller or the 4501 RR ECU

    In a boat, I would think the impeller would make a greater difference. You would have a more snappy power band.

    Yeah both motors were all the way retarded. I just had to check. Now I'm going to fill the ride plate holes and seams just for a little more. And then I'll just have to wait for the props. Don't know on the SC Impeller or the ECU? I like the ECU but over the winter I'm sure I'll do the Impellers for the SC.

    Yeah...can't wait to see how those impellers work for ya'. I'll have to call and see if mine has shipped yet as he said he had a hard time keeping up with the demand for the 3 blades.

    If those bolts come loose it won't hurt anything anyway.... paranoid? You should be! Loctite stays on the parts pretty good> No worries Mate... I bet you can't wait to check them

    Your Right

    I couldn't take it!!! I just got in from re doing both motors with locktight. I just couldn't sleep! You know if it could come loose it would happen to me. Even know I probably take better care of the boat than my wife....
