2.0 JTS cam locks - confused!

Just about to reassemble my 2.0 JTS motor having had the head skimmed.

This being my first JTS, I bought a set of JTS cam locks along with the head gasket set and various other bits and pieces from Alfa Workshop.

However - there are no instructions with the locks as to which cam lobes they fit over.

eLearn says inlet cylinder 3 and exhaust cylinder 2; but these locks look identical to my TS cam locks which go on inlet cylinder 2 and exhaust cylinder 3. I didn't bother locking the cams when I disassembled because I knew I was going to strip the cams from the head...

The part number is correct for the JTS motor.

Can anyone advise?

Had the pleasure of: 'Sud Green Cloverleaf | 75 TS | Spider 2.0 Ph 2 | 155 2.0 | 166 Super | 166 3.0 Sportronic | 156 2.5 Q-System | 166 3.0 Sportronic | 146 1.8 | Spider 2.0 Ph 1 | 145 QV | GT 2.0

You are correct, eLearn in this case is wrong.
