Re: Camshaft timing A22 motor

My early A22's don't have fiber gears. Lucky there. My other make cars used fiber gears around the same time and some are problematic.

Re: Camshaft timing A22 motor

Actualy, if you time the engine according to the book just remember to turn the crank one full turn then you will be on #1 compression....When timing your camshaft, two things must happen at the very same time, (1) #1 piston will be at the very top of its travel and (2) valves on #1 will just be "crossing" (exh. just closing, Int. just cracking) both lifters will be down....Just think of the pairs of cam lobes on your camshaft as being in a "V" cofiguration and the lifters are setting in the bottom of the V....It works for me.
