Setting Timing LH Bank

I am trying to set the timing on the left hand side (driver) and the tick mark on the intake cam is not in any range to line up with the pink plate of the chain. The cams are at zero lift. I tried two different sprockets and same issue both times. I thought maybe the internals of the sprocket where damaged and it was stuck in full advance or full retard position. Only other thing it could be is the camshaft is twisted but the tick mark is at least 35-45 degrees away from where it should be. Any thoughts on what to do?

Hello Doopy81 and welcome to our forum -

Have you had the cams off of the head or have you just taken the timing chain off of the sprocket(s) - ??

I've never timed one of these puppies, but procedure states you need to rotate the engine after timing bank 2 to time bank 1.

Bank 1 is timed with the sprocket timing marks in the aligned position, so bank 2 (left) needs to be at a specific offset to be timed.

Thank You!



I did have the cams off the head to add gasket sealer to the caps after having them rebuilt. The heads came off a used 2013 and were rebuilt with larger valves and new valve components by IAG.



They are in the zero lift position so you can rotate them by hand about 120deg. I bought another used cam sprocket and the tick mark gets closer to where it needs to be than the original cam sprocket but still doesnt get close enough (off by about 25-30deg).

The exhaust cam on bank 2 lines up where it should but the intake can not be turned with in the "zero lift range or lightly by hand" to get the tick mark in the 2 O'clock position as shown in the diagram. It falls between 5 and 10 oclock.

Doopy81, I'm going to ring up ol @ermax for you. He has had this engine apart and may be able to help you out.

The figure shows the timing mark on the face of the bank 2 intake sprocket at 8 o'clock, not at 2.

There is two timing mark on each cam. one is an arrow and the other is the tick mark on the circumference of the cam that is used to line up with the chains pink plate. The timing arrow you are referring to is at 3 o'clock instead of 8 o'clock

It should be at 8. Mark "a"



Crankshaft key at 10 o'clock
Intake face mark at 8 o'clock
exhaust face mark at 2 o'clock

Colored link on crank key
Colored link on circumference mark of intake at 2 o'clock
Colored link on circumference mark of exhaust at 5 o'clock

Install guides and tensioner - rotate engine until crank key at 6 o'clock to time bank 1 with the 2 cam face marks pointing towards each other.
