    Hey,

    I need to check the cam timing on a N52B30 Engine.

    I understand that it is general advisable to use a camshaft locking kit however I can't justify the cost as this is a Uni project and not my engine. The kit from Sealey is VS5000, instructions not available online.

    The engine has been disassembled by other students without marking up the engine correctly. I have the TDC on no.1 however both the exhaust and inlet cams are out as the chain/sprockets have been removed.

    I've searched for a few hours here and google, finding the thread on the pelican parts link and the M42 timing using the other sealey kit.

    Similarly can anyone confirm that the flanges on the cam shaft should 90 degrees to the cylinder block top face. The inlet has just closed and exhaust is about to open.
    And then viewed from the chain side, the sprocket you have two marks, one on the adjustment unit cover circumference and the other on the front face. Should the circumference marker be 90 degrees again i.e vertically upwards. Otherwise the marker on the front face is about +15(exh)/-15(inlet) degrees. . Is the front face marker a pointer to the chain guide?

    I tried initially but it seems the oil holes are misaligned.

    Perhaps cheeky but could anyone provide a scan of the sealey VS5000 kit instructions or even better the relevant pages from the Bentley Publishers Book.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated more than I could say here. I'm in quite a pickle and don't fancy contact against the valves, as I need the opening, closing, lift vs crank angle.

    Thanks again!

    Cheers,
    Matt

    Unlikely the chain will snap, but if it's a recent 316, the engines are a little bit overtechnical, and have all manner of expensive problems.
