  • Cam timing marks imperfect alignment

    Hello,

    My Intake (E) cam is a little bit misaligned with the notch. Exhaust A is fully aligned. Is this by design or there is a problem here, it means that the intake valves are opening very slightly early.

    I believe shifting the E cam by one on the timing chain will move it further to the other side of the notch.

    Thanks,

    Mehmet

    they are all like that due to chain stretch, timing guides wear, head/block skimmed, head gasket crush thickness.....etc etc etc

    Those are just right. You should be good to go.

          I know that if you have the 3 degree exhaust cam, it will show as if the alignment mark is off.
          Not sure if that’s your case.

            Actually, I have the stock setup, did not change the cam.

              Oops,
              I meant the exhaust cam gear.
