Degreeing camshaft question, post two!
« on: March 02, 2012, 12:29:44 AM »
I'm looking at different manifolds, and I realize that the runners on all these seem to be long and they snake their way towards the flang.  I was wondering why they do this, as oppsed to a more straight foward design, like what would come on an OEM application...

Nevermind, totes just figured out the answer.

Second question:  When degreeing a camshaft, is it necessary to use a piston stop to find TDC, or can you kinda just eyeball it?

Video below in case more info needed:

You could look at the damper if it has one. If I was gonna eyeball tdc I'd make sure the head was off.

Would the damper have a mark on it indicating TDC?
