Posted via FF MobileDoc - I give excess detail at times - leave it as Glad it`s out now. 2. Many engines have cam sprockets keyed or locked to the cam in one position - was just asking the "stupid" question to confirm yours are adjustable as ours are - sprockets turn freely when attachment bolt loosened. Grumpy - trying to visualize why movement of sprocket while tightening crank bolt would be a problem. wouldn`t that be tightened B4 locking the cam bolts to finalize timing?
