Installing a headspacer slightly advances timing I dont have an exact number since it depends on the size of the head-spacer. I think if you don‘t have any slack on the backside it may not matter. Also might just be able to use an adjustable cam gear.Darepoole, thank you for replying. So there is a .005 difference between the cam plate and notches on cams from level on the exhaust cam and .003 between level on the intake cam. If that makes any sense? Lol. All other marks are dead on. You mentioned clearancing the guide, is there a particular one folks do?
Yeah that’s super close. I assume if you remove material from that lower guide that should straighten them up. That amount of difference wont matter but getting them perfect is also a good call.
I would I think you‘ll be fine. Hopefully a 3.2 guru will chime In with better/more infoI still may remove some material and see where they land. As is.. would you button it up and turn the key? In the end I do not want to have to pull the motor back out because of stupid timing faults. So whatever is necessary now to make as proper as it needs to be.
Ohh that‘s right! Much agreedIt was pretty new and not terrible heavy so paint stripper and a brass wire wheel on my drill made rather quick work of 90%. The rest by dremel. I only needed one other person to be a bit skeptical about it, as I definitely was. I will take honesty over agreability any damn day and twice on Sunday. Lol
I feel like a Padawan reading this. Good info though because being off just 2 teeth is BAD, reading you can add a tooth sounds crazy to me. One day, knock on nothing, I'll have a garage and the motor I will conquer! Thanks for the rookie info for me as alwaysI just use red, gray and green scotch Brite pads. Plastic and steel razor blades as needed. Cam lobes on 24v I don't think are an issue, AFAIK. That video is a great video btw, unfortunately I am not in the 7.0:1 compression camp though, I was. That 5mm head spacer plus 2 head gaskets requires a chain with an extra link. I am running most of the HPA DTM 350 system but 8.5:1 compression instead so normal chain. The extra link chain at 8.5 is to long and puts a weird angle on the timing chain tensioner guide. Although I m not to crazy about the 8.5 but people run them that way I suppose.
