1981 Spider, now running on Webers with Euro spec cams.

Can I tell if the intake cam (still?) has the mechanical VVT just by looking at the sprockets etc? If so, how? Or another simple way to tell? I guess I'm just looking for a photo/link to photo of the sprockets with and without VVT.

Need to know to check the timing is set correctly.

Thanks!
Martin

Thanks - can I see that without undoing anything (other than the cam cover of course)?

Reason is when I set the valve clearances I noted that the intake cam was significantly retarded so I set it to 102degrees as per various research.

I haven't set the carbs up with the new timing yet but I'm just concerned I might not have noticed if VVT was still there (prob being paranoid!) and I don't want to run it at revs if it is.

I didn't see anything particularly different between the intake/exhaust sprockets.
