PJ Gears.

First & Foremost, Thank you for the Comp Cams link. Now that I am Retired I tend to have plenty of time on my hands & look for "Stuff" to do on my 210, 57. The way I see it "How else am I going to learn if I don't dive into it" which is exactly what I am doing. Prior to disassembly, I placed the eng @ TDC. Rotated Crank, Dist points to #1 Cyl. #1 Cyl Piston can be felt at TDC with screwdriver through sparkplug hole. Removed Timing Cover.Camshaft Gear (Top) was pointing @ 12 O'Clock. Crankshaft Gear (Bottom) pointing @ 12 O'Clock. According to Inst.sheet in Compcams link, and I quote, "The mark on the Crank Sprocket will be at 12 O'clock (Straight up) and Mark on Cam Sprocket at 6.Well quess what? Mine is as follows: Cam Gear @ 6 O'clock, Crank Gear @ 12. I know I did something wrong, now, how do I fix it? Appreciate any input. Thanks Guys. AFSOG. :
