Hi no one has come back to me can we try lotus experience people
Hello Bobthe auxilary shaft can go in any position as you have a wide window of adjustment on the distributor plus the option of moving the plug leads round on the distributor cap to achieve the right running orderthe fuel pump cam is completly unreliant on any timing, so no need to worry about that

Hi Matt
Thanks for the info I undersand I can adjust this all out but
This shaft is a old cam shaft is it ok on balance in any position
hello as long as the main cams are timed correctly to the crank then there's no need to time anything else, as the cam is a 4 cylinder part so is naturally balanced anyway this kent build manual may help;Hs;fid=1187045;cid=713664464;rid=1830395912;up=0;uip=;tm=1447452266;ut=f;;did=ulozto-net;He;ch=ffea135bb5b61f1e4b3e649a5efcb914;Pe/xghTMDx/ford-s-kent-crossflow-engine-pdf?bD&c=713664464&De&redirs=1
