    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.

    Engine didn't rotate while you tightened the balancer retaining bolt did it?
    If the cam was installed correctly, the timing marks shouldn't be on TDC anyway as the engine is on the intake stroke, not compression/ignition stroke.

    rlj.....while I'm happy to lunch my own gear, it doesn't sit well with me giving other people advice on how to lunch theirs :-)

    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!

    Cheers
