On Cloyes timing chains to advance the cam, do you have to pull the botom chain sprocket off and move it to another keyway? and if so which one of the keyways does it need to be in?

just look on the box it tell's you how to do it. i have one they work good.buy the way if you don't take the gear off you can't move it to another key way

If you dont want to take the crank sprocket off you could always use a bushing in the top one.

i dont have the box any more. I was trying to figure out which key way was to advance the cam 4 degrees and which was to retard. I know you have to take the gear off to put in a different keyway, i didnt know if you could just line up the dot to a different mark and it work the same way.

The two other keyways in the lower sprocket will be identified either by a trianle or rectangular box, the triangle keyway normally will advance the camshaft 4 crankshaft degress's, the rectangular normally retards the camshaft 4 crankshaft degress's. Please note these are crankshaft degree's. Remember that when you use these keyways that you also time cam to crank, you align dot on cam sprocket to corressponding trianle or rectangular mark on crank sprocket. Good luck

Before you close her up install the timing tab and slid on the damper, insatll two lifters in the no. 1 cam. Take a flat piece of metal or a machanist ruler and move the cam to where the two lifter tops are at the same height. at this point you will find you advance or retard degrees if you look at the timing tab. It will have a certain amount of advance on the timing tab or it will read retarded.
