I have a 97 volvo 960 that I am changing the head gasket. I have reinstalled the cams along with the top head. I then check the timing of the cam gears to the notches on the cam alighnment shroud and am off a bit should I be able to spin the cams by hand and get the correct alignment and if so how hard would it be.
