Z6 cam / Y8 Cam gear VS &Y8 Cam Z6 cam gear

Post  ShopJRD.com on Fri Jan 18, 2008 2:16 am

If you put a y8 cam in with a z6 gear, the cam keyway will be lined up with zero on that gear and retarded about 4.5 degrees. in order to correct this, you want the keyway to be 4.5 degrees away from the z6 original keyway position, so you would ADVANCE the y8 cam w/ the z6 gear 4.5 degrees. This would now make your y8 keyway 4.5 degrees to the left of the straight up and down 'typical' z6 keyway position (if looking at the cam gear face).

so, if y8 cam w/ z6 sprocket: advance 4.5 degs. If z6 cam with y8 sprocket: retard 4.5 degrees.

I figured Id through this out there.
