This is the engine with the valve cover removed.


This is the cam chain tensioner removed.


Valve sprocket being removed.


I removing the valve housing( I guess you call it that)


The valve housing removed.




Make sure you don't mix these inserts up. I think you could potentially have a clearence problem.


Here you can see the diffrence in the two cams.

IMO that is the best way to do it as far as the cam sprocket and timing chain is concerned. Keep tension on them so you don't have to worry about them jumping a tooth. This method saves time when putting it back together because it can be a pain trying to get the marks to all line up and have the chain where you need it. This is also the way I did it on mine and it definately speeds up the process.

Tom, very nice pics!! I should have done the same, how do you like the cam? Did you need new shims when you installed the cam.

Looks good to me.....only thing I do differently is I remove the decompressor actuator prior to removing the cam....that bolt can be tough to get out trying to hold that cam in your hand....

you know its weird sometimes a tank will last forever and other times its gone in like 3 hrs. Maybe i should get a splitfire and an i cat. that would have to be good for like 18hp and increased gas mileage!! :bleh:
