This will tell you how one cam is timed in relation to the other camshaft only.
It assumes you have the ignition timing set correctly for the number 1-3 cylinder camshaft which is traditionally how we time the car. Once you set the distributor to this cam, the method I laid out will tell you whether the 4-6 cylinder camshaft is either advanced or retarded relative to it.
I am not sure how better to describe what I mean.
I hope this helps.
