Need a diagram and procedure on how to install the cams and VCT timing chains as well with the main timing chains on the truck listed above. I bought a short block and I'm going to assemble it.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hello,

I have attached the timing chain, cam and the VCT timing replacement procedures below.

Please let me know if you need any other information.
Thank you.

Thank you very much. This helps a lot. By any chance do you have the head installing instructions and torque specs?

Okay, thank you. One last question so since I'm going to start on a new short block in what position do I place the crankshaft keyway to start doing the timing? Is there a procedure for that or do I start at 3:30?

You want to keep the keyway at 3:30 after you remove the chain and when you install the chain.
