You need to redegree the cam

If it actually is slipping though, you have much bigger problems

Hi Krannie, Thanks ....

 

can you explain the redegree process ? I do not understand this expression....

how exactly did you determine the sprocket slipped on the cam ?   you sure your at the correct TDC (there are 2)

Degreeing a cam is not a job for a novice, even many 'pros' cannot do it. You need special tools and the ability to remove and reinstall the gear on the cam. Some big shops have a jig used to hold everything in alignment during the pressing process. Then they tack weld the gear to the shaft to keep it from moving again.

Thanks for the answers, I will take this decision and let you know the ends....
