Cam install help

:thumbsup: I ordered a hot cam exhaust cam today and I have the bike tore down with the cams removed. My question is this, I lined up the I with the marks this suppose to be top dead center. Problem is when I look at the cams the lobes are facing inward twords each other. I doubled checked and it is lined up with the I mark. Should I reinstall the cams the same way or face them outward like every thing says????

You have the crank at TDC of the intake stroke right now. If you go one more revolution, the I will line back up and the lobes will be facing out. If you are going to change both cams then it doesn't matter that you are not on compression stroke. Just be sure that when you put the cams back in that the I is lined up and the lobes are facing out. Line up the timing marks with the top of the head and you should be good to go. Hope this helps.
