position of timing cam (help)
« on: July 17, 2018, 01:09:40 pm »
I replaced an Ascot head gasket and during reassembly, the marks I made on the cam position rubbed off! :-\ (EEKS) Please help I need to know the orientation of the cams, I have the piston to TDC now.

Thank you!! I will post photos if anyone wants. This head needed several thread repairs on the studs.

I found the timing marks for the cam gear (Strangely they were on the BACK of the gear??) Anycase Here is a link to the photos in case someone else ever needs to find the cam position marks and of course the TDC for the piston and crank - It started right up!

Glad you got it sorted. Strange the timing marks are on the back side of the cam sprocket.
