    rover v8 timing question

    Fitting a new cam on my rover v8 with new clyoes chain gears etc, got timing marks on gears spot on as I slide them on but when pushed fully home marks are slightly out, not by much 2-3mm , the engine was checked at tdc, but it might have moved slightly when I fitted new flywheel? So do I need to move crank slightly or cam slightly? Many thanks

    Assuming it he can wheel is adjustable, get a degree wheel and time the cam according to the specs based on true TDC. Once you're happy, check valve to piston clearance with plasticine.
