    Don't know much about it, but you'll need a degree wheel and a wire coat hanger as an indicator. Plus, you'll obviously need to be able to turn the engine by hand.
    Did you install the cam straight up?
    What are the new cam specs (just as info)?

    Okay did you see dots on your tc? Did you replace the Tc? Its easy with a stock tc but if you went to a double roller or aftermarket with a 9 key way setup its a bit more complicated. Ill subscribe so just keep postin.

    A true degree procedure would take a very long time to type. Thou its not hard, it does take some practice to get it down.

    Also if you are planning on doing a double roller, DONT. They put way too much stress on a crank that is also street driven. you will need bearings faster and even a new crank.
