I have a strange situation.
I am tearing down my DOHC Masi and have found an issue with the timing marks on the cam, crank, and intermediate shaft.
When the motor is on top dead center, the oil pump/ distributor is off one tooth and the cam key ways are pointed (E at 3 o’clock and intake is at 12 o’clock?
This motor runs and I drove it about 115miles after purchasing?
I pulled the valve cover to pin the cams to verify proper alignment, only to find the cam actually has 4 pin holes… 90° apart?
My question is ;
Is the factory manual correct, do the key ways point toward each other (point toward the center)
The cam gears on my motor are attached to the cams the same orientation as the intermediate shaft (it appears that they were installed backwards?)
They are marked front (visiable), but this looks incorrect when viewing the FSM
Any comments would be appreciated.
