Another question, if you're not removing the followers is it necessary to set the motor to tdc? Or can you swap the cams as the motor sits
I'm not sure TDC is where you want it for the least amount of tension. It you follow the install instructions you want to have the motor in the position that they tell you to have it in after you remove the 3 followers. I know they're not removed but that is the position where you only have 3 cam lobes pressing against the followers. That is the point where there is the least pressure on the cam.Putting it on TDC allows you to put the cam in with the least amount of tension while putting the journal caps back on
Now I think about it I'm thinking more that I should of kept it in lol oh boy, guess itl take longer to get my car up to running status. Plus I have no clue what to do to fix it now if it is messed up haha live and learni doubt it moved much, but to be sure you need to pull the timing cover and make sure it is still in time. nothing like starting it up the first time and having a vavle smack the piston!
Was the chain already on the cam sprocket when you removed the wedge, or was it just laying there?Well there's one thing I'm slightly worried about that I did without even thinking yesturday. So I put my cam in the drivers side, but didn't actually install it, so it's just sitting there. And without thinking, I pulled out the wedge and put it in the other side to start workin on getting that cam, right when I put the wedge in I was like "****... What did I do" lol I've had a wedge in there basically sense I took the covers off, but I took it out and switched it when I started working on my he other cam. So did I **** up?
Que?Id more worried about the chain coming off the bottom sprocket if it wasn't wedged on the passenger side... any one else?
The chain was never taken off of the sprocket, but the sprocket was removed from the cam when I removed the wedgeWas the chain already on the cam sprocket when you removed the wedge, or was it just laying there?
Haha I think I actually said at sometime before the install that normally anything that can go wrong when I install **** doesThis is a thread for how NOT to do a cam install. Almost everything that you could do wrong you have done. It will make you better at in the long run but make take $$ and headache to get there. Good luck.
