cam chain timing

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

So I pulled my head off the other day to remove my auto decompressor but now I can't seem to get the timing to line up it ether sits too low on the left side or too low on the right.

any ideas???

No I didn't think to check it before I pulled it Off

If my cam chain is stretched how come there is no play in the chain once I put the tensioner in?

Post a picture of the top marks and the line up you have..a bit of float either way is kinda normal..Can you lift the Camhain off the top of the sprocket to any degree with the auto tensioner in place,,post a picture of that to..

The chain has to be stretched a pile before the tensioner won`t due it`s job...but if the marks are off at TDC then the chain is stretched and you`d better replace it..

When I pull the tensioner out I can get the timing marks to line up

If the timing is off too much you can have the valve hit the the piston on overlap...

The chain does not actually stretch......it wears,,the pins wear out and the chain fails,,not pretty..

Your bike have many hours on it? Is it possible to put gear on 180 degrees out? I cant remember any off this when I did my auto compressor removal. (sigh getting old)

It is not possible to get the cam timing out as the spark occurs every crank revolution. As long as the cam sprocket marks line up with the gasket surface of the head cover and the "T" mark is lined up, all is good.
