That makes that area look tilted (since it is actually tilted) when comparing the two from the rear.
that is an excellent point. Had I done the installation myself, I would have noticed how they installed opposite of one another.

I'd be unhappy about those tabs myself, but since they aren't a tight fit to the eccentrics normally
that's reassuring, because I didn't remember if my old cams always sat snugly between their two tabs.
