Re: reverse rotation timing sprockets / gears

thank you -yes thats it exactly. crank gear seems to be out an eighth inch or less. that is the only gear that was swapped. cam and gear never were removed. how would i seat it correctly - HEAT ? and it they are not meshing properly would i get the clicking noise versus a whine. great pic thanx again
