Reassure Me - Installed Cams Wrong

Recommended Posts

Help! I'm having an anxiety attack! Because of my carelessness, and the fact that TrailTech flywheels aren't marked, I installed both my cams 1 tooth advanced. When started, it sounded like shaking up a paint can. Ran for maybe 10 sec.

Please tell me the valves didn't hit the piston :lol:

I waited a long long time to get RHC valves in there and this happens :applause:

When corrected, it runs strong, starts fine, and the valve clearences didn't change. I waited a long long time to get RHC valves in there. I've had the cams in and out 20 times before, never missed, now :lol:

If you bent a valve, your clearances would have changed drastically. Did you turn the motor through one revolution after setting the timing?

Yes, 4-5 times. Turned smooth. I just need a someone to tuck me in before I go to bed
