Ts camshaft gurus. A question of timing...
A while ago I fitted 2.0 cams in the 147 1.6 and rejoiced at a power increase.
Then the front cats fell out, mysteriously ending up in the bin, and a 2.0 variable length manifold fairy waved her wand and did her one job in life....
All is well until I remembered a comment on a thread about timing up the cams on the 1.6 block. There was a statement about advancing the cams after being set up with the timing blocks. Ala:
"I think that the best way to do this is to use the 2.0 locking tools and then attach an angle measurement tool (not sure about its english name) to the crankshaft pulley and measure 9 degrees of crankshaft advance for the inlet cam.
If you choose to measure the advance degrees on the cam instead of the crankshaft you have to measure 4.5 degrees."
Now, I've not timed cams before, is that going to be worth getting my hands dirty?
