Re: 58 352ci cam timing marks
so, you're saying, dot up on the crank, dot down on the cam is correct, yes? that is how i installed it. i did not count links between the dots. that picture shows both timing marks off to the side, with 12 links between which is how my friend explained it, not lined up dot to dot. i'm feeling like there is conflicting information....
i have turned the engine over by hand, it turns freely and has consistent compression, which i would not think would be the case if the cam timing were off right? i'v visually checked cam timing with a valve cover off and #1 spark plug out and everything seems right, exhaust and intake rock right as the piston reaches TDC.
during the rebuild i replaced the timing sprockets and chain, could the new set have different timing marks then factory?
