While replacing the oil pump, the timing got off (cam flipped). I removed the cams - lined up crank to make on oil pump (ATDC) and now i'm attempting to re-install the cams.
The right cams falls into place without any problems and timing marks line up 90 degree from head. However, when I put the left cams in, as I tighten the caps both I & E cams turn causing the timing marks to be at 11:00 O'Clock position. because of this the primary chain marks will not line up.
What am I doing wrong and how do I correct it..
mans best friend in this case is 2 breaker bars with 2 short 3/8th extenders when you place the 2 breaker bars on the 2 separate cams when you have both cams and the primary chain lined up the 2 breaker bars will be in an x position (at that point you can now hold both cams with one hand and put in the last 2 cam bolts) while keeping a close eye on the last timing mark on the oil pump and make any changes to it's position.
You're talking about plugging the breaker bars into the 3/8" square holes in the front ends of the cams made for this purpose, right? I'm thinking that JOJO didn't know about the square holes and is perhaps having a "DUH!!" moment right now.
