^^^ good point Travis.
Usually if it jumps time continuously or repeatedly, the tensioners are not taking up the slack in the timing chains and the cams can jump.

D2D is the method I think your using to get the base time set. Dot to Dot

Check the tensioner to see if they have excessive slack. Is the timing jump happening on the long chains or the secondary chains?

LOL... Then it could'nt have "jumped" timing.

How did you figure it was the wrong cams?

Either way Wheeeewwww.....

Brother tried to spin cams and they only turned so far. Looked at the number on the back of the cams and saw he had to swap them. Now I gotta fix this oil leak. Smh.
