i put a 440 kit on it and forgot to mark the timing gear on top and now dont know how it goes

Expert:  Christopher replied 8 years ago.
I am not all that familiar with the 440 kit but i am very familiar with the 400ex. Turn the flywheel to the "T" mark. align the cam gear "-" "-" marks level with the gasket surface. install the chain tensioner and recheck. I cant believe the kit did not come with instructions. Are you using the stock cam gear? If so time as i have instructed...Chris
