THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR REPLY. WHAT IS IT TURNS ONLY 15 DEGREES WITH CAMS AND CHAIN OFF? JUST WANNA MAKE SURE I'M DOING MY JOB RIGHT. IT'S MY FIRST TIME ON CHAIN CARS. I THINK I'VE BENT THE VALVES WHILE STARTING THE CAR WHEN THE TIMING WAS OFF. I HOPE NOT. PLEASE HELP ME. THIS NEEDS TO BE DONE BY TOMORROW.
