Thanks cub for the input. You and MR have been a huge help.
I did buy a timing light but didn’t have a chance to use it. With the gun ready to go I was going through the steps In the paperwork OGTS sent and found something interesting.
The cam sprocket pin and the flywheel ball do not seem to line up. I say seems because it is devilishly hard to check the true alignment of the ball and pointer. The parallax makes it very tricky. With the pointer just above mid way on the ball the cam sprocket looks to be about 10 degrees off. See photo. The red line is approx perpendicular to the garage floor. The sprocket pin should be at 6 o’clock in the photo. Note that I do not have a ball, just a round hole on the flywheel.
My question could the darn car even run if it is that far off? Or is the parallax throwing me off that much? If it is off, does that mean I have to reset the timing chain? Scary!
I love the idea of the checklist and should be able to get to it on Friday and report back.
