My  :notworthy:  Joe Caruso timing gears and relieved cam bushing came today, one week shipped from the heart of England. I have never received anything packed this well, or dealt with anyone finer than Joe. :thumbsup:

The pieces look awesome! :luigi:

Staging is lovely docc & while those lightening holes certainly add a certain cool factor - they do look ruggedly hefty!

With gears replacing chains - if there’s any weight difference - is that weight difference in engineering terms normally calculated to be apportioned to the crankshaft assembly - or to the valve train?

Well well well  Houston I have a conundrum.

Crank and cam gears aligned upon disassembly.

This is where I'm at:huh2:

cam sprocket is on the dowel pin...crank sprocket is on the woodruff keyway.

what to do....

The crank has moved. Look at the keway on my install compared to yours. Make sure you rotate the engine by hand with the plugs out to check for interference before you button it up.

Yeah, pull one gear and rotate the crank until the marks line up. If the plugs are in, it prolly ain't at TDC. In any event, after the install, rotate the crank verrrrry slowly, listening and feeling for interference.

Seems like mebby I saw this with mine... The hole in my memory says maybe they're timed on the other cylinder. Don't trust anything in my memory hole.
In any case, just line them up and trust it's right.

I haven't rotated it over yet....these engines turn easy with no 

plugs in. TDC ....S in the flywheel hole...dots line up ....dinner ..

then I will go rotate it a couple times.

this is some really nice kit.

I had no appreciable wear on the cam thrust bearing....the old one

measured 7mm thick and the new one was 7mm thick.

lock washer behind oil pump nut was broken in two.?

So, TDC/ sinestra! :thumbsup:

These replaced your original (~130,000 mile) chain and tensioner? How did those look coming out?

Also, Joe would like to know what you found for residue/ "sludge" in the bottom of the timing chest pool?

no sludge in my motor 

not having a new set of sprockets to compare, I could see

some wear....nothing worthy of you-tube.

I'm very pleased with the look of everything after 

130,000 miles
