i pulled my head off, replaced: valves, springs, lifters, retainers, and keepers.

put the head back on today, using a mk4 headgasket, and ARP head studs.

all went well.


i installed a new set of DRC 268 cams.

set the crank to TDC using the timing marks on the flywheel and trans housing.

locked the cams into place using my cam alignment tool.

set (what i thought was timing) by lining up the cam gears on the chain and placing the gears on the camshafts.

when i pulled the cam alignment tool out, the cams shift and the chain pops off the cam gear.


it happend 3 times.

anyone ever experience this?????
