Just curious - did you have anything machined (case spigots, heads, etc.)? If so, this could cause alignemnt issues between the chain housings and the cam decks (housings)...provided material wasn't also removed from the chain boxes. Just playing devil's advocate in case you didn't think of it. Good luck with your build!
