zed Posted May 6, 2009 Report Share Posted May 6, 2009 (edited) So, last night I got the head on, and set up the new timing chain just like in Hainz's vid. Tried the cam sprocket on no. 1, 2 and 3 dowel settings. But the "-"mark on the fixed plate is at least 1mm/.040" behind the "v" notch on the cam on all 3 settings. I did it over many times - checked that the crankshaft dimple is right on the bright chain link each time, and no.1 piston is at TDC. If I understand it right, this means the timing is ADVANCED on all 3 settings? (both head and deck were skimmed .020" - so it should be retarded if anything?) It looks like this: _ ...V Maybe the new chain is too short? Can I go ahead and set it on no. 1 dowel? any advice? Edited May 6, 2009 by zed Quote Link to comment
