Cam timing is critical if you have not heard of it do your reseach so you understand the procedure.It is esential to find top dead center one for cam timing and the other for spark timing.Buy yourself a degree wheel although your typical cam manafacturer degree wheel is inacurate it will get you in the ball park.

A cam install is a bit more than hit and miss. I've seen bent pushrods before. If you're not sure what you've done is right or how to check it, it'd pay to look into it a bit more. Stick with it!
