They are. The intake cam is slightly turned. I know that moving the crank to the pin isn't going to move the cams since there is no belt. However, from what I have read it seems that if the crank is against the pin and the cams are lined up all is good. No? I know I have lots of questions but the more I read on here the more confused I get. Everybody seems to say somethign different.
