I just tried to install my Cloyes roller timing chain. I have the sprocket on the crank and the #1 piston at TDC but the align marks won't line up. I have a chain set up that can be installed retarded, OE or advanced and it does not have a dot on the crank sprocket. The dot on the cam sprocket is to one side of center. If I move a tooth it goes to the other side but much farther of center. Is this going to be a problem? I wouldn't mind a little retarded for more low end torque but I would prefer it was straight up.
