2012 S60 T5 2.5l CAM QUESTION ON REBUILD
Trying to find out the correct position for the Cams on Re Installation after have the Cylinder head and valves rebuilt
after a timing belt failed and bent the valves.
It is 2.5l that i am putting back together and have a question about the installation of the Intake and exhaust
cams. before I install the Cam Locking tool and get ready to install the valve cover.
I have the Engine on TDC with the Crank on the alignment mark, to the best of my research online it looks
like the Intake cam should have the Numbers facing DOWN and the Exaust numbers UP.
It this Correct?
Don't want to install 180deg backwards and bend all the valves like a idiot after all this hard work on the rebuild
I am on the home stretch.
Also, Some web sites or youtube say to lay the CAMS in so the
Intake has the Center Line For the Cam Locking Tool, Just above the Horizontal line of where the Top of the Cylinder Head
meets the Cam Cover center line on drivers side
Exhaust Cam drops in so the Horizontal line is Below the Center line.......
FYI the Part number seem to be in the way one site said to set them.... Part Number on Intake CAM will be on the Bottom when it is
sitting in the Cylinder Head
Part number on the Exhaust Cam is on the TOP when placed in the Head.
Also, Some engine rebuilds show people locking the Cams in on the Valve Cover and placing into the Block,
Others show dropping Cams into the Cylinder head, Wiring down to the valv cover and Lcoking down...
then Drop the Valve cover in and bolt down.
Are Both Correct? seems it easier to just istall the Cam into the Head and pop the Cover on... Help needed....
Weblinks or Photos would help also
