The car is a 300m. When changing timing belt I noticed that the cam end are round with a flat spot.
After replacing cam seals, I noticed the pulleys have
almost a complete timing belt tooth of play.
Is this normal, or should they slide on without any play?
have the same problem?

Thank you for the donation,
IF you can move the cam a little either way with out belt on this will just be that the cam lobes have aligned up without any load on them, you find this in a lot of twin and quad cam engines, as loge at the valve timing marks are correctly aligned and the belt is tight all will be good.
