Ok, my cam tinming is defo out, thing is tho - I dont have a timing dial to do it with. I have read that it can be done without one, but I've never timed a cam in other than srandard myself, I always get my mate to do it. This time I'm gonna have a crack at it tho. I have adjustable vernier too.

If anyone can shed some light on it for me before Wednesday, then I will be very greatful.

ok rich i've been looking this cam timming up, and i have come up with the following.
1, remove the housing, so you can see the gears.
2, rotate the crankshaft until the woodruf key is at tdc.
3, check the allignment of both the gear wheels, both dots on the wheels should line up.

if they do then your cam timming is a OK :grin:

what type you got, chain or belt?

If only it was that simple...

I have adjustable vernier and a rally cam!

I took it to Paul Inch Engineering today so they could time the cam in for me. Paul said that the can was in fine as it was, he checked everything over but couldnt find any cam timing faults.

We think now that it could be the dizzy doesnt have the right advance curve for the cam, so I am now after an Aldon dizzy if you know of one going cheap?
