It looks like I screwed up and the exhaust cam is 180 deg out on the passenger side,
but yet the tit near the chain is on top and lines up with the colored chain link.

I think this one should be about 6-7 notches clock wise

This cam should be about 180 counter clock wise IMO

You better get it figured out before you try and start it or you will need new valves at the very least!!

wheres #1 piston?

think about it Brad......with the crank @45 BTDC #1 then the cam timing marks should be 3 notches away from lining up correctly at 0 BTDC

I have a pic...hold it......from the '90 GT

I got it done.

With the crank at 45 I rolled the cams to there correct position.
Brought the crank around to T/C
put the belt on and adjusted the gears.

Then I had to remove the belt again to put the cover in behind the belt :rolleyes:

Brad, you better pull the valve covers and check the cam position before doing anything else. I'd hate to hear, later on, that the engine timing was 180 deg off. Yikes! It's so easy for even a seasoned mechanic to make that mistake.
