<VV> <VV> Camshaft Timing Question

Every once in a while, a bad batch of cam gears shows
up (the slot for the Woodruff key is miss cut). If
you have a used Chevy cam gear, you can check the
slots position for confirmation. I have switched to
Ray Sedman's adjustable cam gear for that reason
about two years ago.

Subject : RE: <VV> Camshaft Timing Question
I'm just early on in the process of re-assembling my
3.1 for my UltraVan and
yesterday I put the crankcase halves together.
I have the shop manual but mostly followed the
directions in Bob Helt's book
for aligning the camshaft to the crankshaft.
As with the first build there is no way I can get the
absolutely together. The closest I get is about a
half tooth off.
I pulled the camshaft several times and moved it 1
tooth forward and
Everything else looks right i.e. number 2 piston is
at TDC as per Bob Helt's
It ran like this the first time but now I'm curious -
has this happened to
anybody else? Do I need to be concerned?
