Thanks for asking your question. I will try and help you out.

Can you get me the engine serial number please?

Expert:  Cat Man replied 1 year ago.

To time the cam you need to first pin the flywheel putt the crankshaft on TDC. Then make sure to line up the cam gear timing mark to 12 oclock.

This will help you see the timing marks and the procedure to set the back lash.
