Timing C&B Cams


I was thinking of getting a set of C&B cams for my 1.6 156 for that extra power.
On the original cams you have the cam locks to adjust the timing, but how about the C&B cams?
How do you adjust the timing?

Re: Timing C&B Cams

I am pretty sure though not 100% that there is a flat spot on the end of each cam. This is supposed to line up parralel with the head at TDC though I am sure someone can confrm this.

I thought the flat spots were for a open ended spanner so you can undo the timing gear.
As for timing the cams I would contact the manufactor

I'm sure the timing of the C&B cams is done with a flat metal bar across the flats on the cams.

Or a protractor possibly? Not too sure of course!:
