Try taking the tappets out while putting the gears in the case.

That is your timing mark for the front cam. IGNORE THE PAINT MARKS!!!

The paint marks are gear sizing for factory assembly.

Neil...

Please pull the tappet blocks out, then put the cams in. That's how the rest of us do it. I hope. Tappet blocks and tappets go in after cams are in and outer timing cover is bolted on.
