Help! Holding cam gears still

779 Views 11 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  SuperFlea
How do you hold the cam gears still while you tighten the bolt to the camshaft? Every time I tighten them no matter how I hold them they throw my timing off. Does anybody have a trick. I am following the AEM instructions but they don’t say how to hold them still.

I am using focus central gears.

superflea is right, there is not "nut" in the cam but there is a flat spot on between the lobes of cylinder 1 and 2, that you could get a wrench on.

forgot, that is on the stock cams, aftermarket cams may/maynot have the "nut"
