I bought 318Ci N42B20 engine few months ago with blown head gasket and few other problems. When I removed cylinder head I locked everything as per Auto Data. Skimmed the head
valves done new seals. And now when I have everything done spot on when I lock the camshafts with correct tools and start to turn the engine crankshaft twice I can see straight away that the intake camshaft stops for a wee while and start again. I don't understand this. The intake valves are closed and this camshaft is stuck for some time. By doing this i think the screw is slackened now because the vanos was going and screw was stuck. After 2 turns the marking is wrong exhaust camshaft ok but intake is wrong.

Thanks guys for reading and please help
