Re: 98 desert storm F**Ked with cam issues
PazYearzzUP thanks for the info. checked both cams. The lobes and shaft are the same with the same clearence. The front gears are different (98 cams have a large diameter). The chain that is being used is longer on the 98 which is the chain currently on the cams. The motor was bought with the instructions that the shims needed to be done. Honda and my bro where both stating that the shims should be in spec but, the automatic CCT on the F1-F3's have an issue and should be replaced with the APE manual CCT which was done. When I messured the shims oringinally, the motor did seem to have been opened and did not check to see if the cam's where tightened to spec, I think you are right, I most likely messured when cams where out of spec and now, am running into the issue. Do have a question, the lower sprocket in the timing cover, would that too need to be changed? The chain seems to be lined up in the sence that when I hand crank the motor one full revolution, the chain does not bind or jump off the cam sprockets. I will start with it being torqued down to spec and re-shim but, if I need to replace the lower sprocket, might do that at the same time.
