Hi,

I'm a moderator for this topic. I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you right away, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

Note that even though this is a 4 cam engine, there are still only two cam gears to set. This is because the two gears on each side are gear driven together.
If you have had the cams out, use the dots on the back side of the gears to align them together.
