Cam ?

I need to replace the cam & Lifters in my jeep. Some one told me just to line up the marks on the gears when i repace them. I was looking in my Chiltons book and it said something about cam gear at one oclock and the crak gear at 6 oclock so there is 15 chain pins apart to have the corroct cam timming? I don't mean to sound dum. can some one help

Actually, the install will be dictated by the manufacturer of the chain and sprockets you use.
(Depending on where they put the marks)

Does this help?

Attachments don't seem to be working. PM your e-mail address and I'll send the drawing from the '78 FSM.
