mcct all the way out Bronc,

it must be a newer chain, no luck whatsoever. You have the chain on when you pop the second cam in? I just cant see that! Yes 470 (+5)stroker

Have you tried completely removing the MCCT from the engine? Not just backed out to the end of its adjustment.

Keep in mind I haven't installed a stroker so I have no idea what I'm talking about.

it is backed out so much that it has no contact with the chain anymore. Removing it would not give me anymore slack.

I just put a new cam chain in my 470 a couple months ago trying to diagnois a noise problem. The chain was not the problem but what a pain to reinstall. It can be done its just a fight. Good luck

🙂 got em in, had to take off the case cover to see that the cam chain was just slightly off the sprocket.
