This is how the Cams lined up after I checked it all..
Here is the setup with the dial indicator checking specs at .050.
And the 2 different sets of timing Mark's for the front and rear cylinders
Nothing fancy, just making sure cam 4 was set correctly.. first time was a tooth off but looked good.

Also I installed the trans ( a million times i think to get the thrust correct) . Such a purdy billet door..

Oh and here is my "New To Me" cam cover thanks to Chevelle.. looks nice... very nice, compared to my old one that I welded up on long ago..
