Alfar7 and alfaparticle,
Thanks for your inputs, finally got to it. Had to fly to other coast for a week, and stuff.
So, here's what I got done on Saturday. First I wiggled things to get the exhaust cam exactly on its timing mark. Rolling the car forward in gear just so that the exhaust cam was perfect. Then easing back just a hair, the crank had enough "play" in the lower chain (?) to roll back about 1/2 inch to line up on the "P" mark - while nothing else up top moved. I think that is an acceptable amount of play. This left the intake cam retarded by a fair amount, but not quite as bad as the first intake picture above. Then I verified the timing marks.
Exhaust was right on at 102, just as it should be.
The intake cam is marked at 108, even though it should be 114.
So that made the cam timing look even worse at first, but in fact, it had been previously timed to be at 114. (maybe about 111 - 112).
So, I moved the vernier bolt (?) 6 holes advanced.
I think that should be (6x1.5) 9 degrees. And if it was 114 before, then it should be (114-9) 105 now. But when all buttoned up, it looks more like 102 to me. So that was far enough for me.
I took it for a nice test drive and I give it a 100% success. Pulls much better right up to redline. Didn't notice any change in lower RPMs.
Thanks again for the inputs. I can only wonder why they put it to 114 to begin with, must have been a polution thing?
Ultimately, the real answer is better cams. Someday RJR cams.
