After three nights of quality time with my motor I have finally got it timed!!! Thanks to everyone on here. I was in fact 180 out on #4. Once I flipped it I only has to move it about 3/4 of a tooth to get it dead nuts on .7mm at TDC overlap. Now I am off to set the valve lash on all the cylinders... at this rate that should take about a month
Is there any benefit (other then the fact that this is my first "at bat" or as Les said "first rodeo") to setting up the dial indicator on #2 and #5 to verify that what I did on number 1 and 4 is correct? Of course the cam is solid, but is there any benefit at all to spending the 10 minutes to jig it up and take the measurements?
