I Installed the cam and started the bke but it sounds like the piston is hitting the valves. the Clearnes are good. here is a pic at TDC. i think the intake is out one tooth but if i turn it 1 tooth the pison will really hit the valves. please look at the bolts on the cam and tell me if they look to be in the right place. i am soo lost on this project right now.

With an adjustable sprocket, the only positive way to tell is with a degree wheel and indicator...otherwise you are just guessing. Tdub
By the way, did you ever call HotCams??
