Am i supposed to split the bright links on the cam? or what? as well, i cant seem to get the timing marks to line up right at all on my left side when ssetting the cam to the 12 o'clock position as it says in the book.
Any help would be appreciated and the sooner the better!!!!!
The 2 bright links go on the camshaft. If you did not lock down the cam, you might have to rotate it.
Slightly loosen the camshaft holding tools to allow slight camshaft movement. Rotate the LH camshaft with the Camshaft Positioning Tool until the timing mark is approximately at 12 o'clock.
Rotate the RH camshaft with the Camshaft Positioning Tool until the timing mark is approximately at 11 o'clock. Tighten the Camshaft Holding Tools to maintain camshaft pre-positioning.
Position the RH (outer) timing chain on the crankshaft sprocket, aligning the copper (marked) link with the timing mark on the sprocket.
Position the RH timing chain/belt on the camshaft sprocket. Make sure the two copper-colored links align with the camshaft sprocket timing mark.
Position the LH and RH timing chain tensioner arms on the dowel pins. Position the timing chain tensioner assemblies, and install the bolts.
Hope this helps !
