    Pinto specs.

    Just setting up a couple of engines, does any one know valve lift at TDC for a standard 2.0 cam?

    Also the same info for a Camtech CT26 723.
    I donít have the tools to dial in using full cam timing with the disc.

    std cam, simple just line the dots up with the engine at tdc, the std cam is so mild it really wont be fussy about timing

    Pinto specs.

    Running a standard cam (rules are rules) on not a very standard engine. Head and block skimmed so wanted to dial in the vernier on the standard cam to maximise performance. But if itís not that fussy then I wonít bother.

    Any idea on the other cam? I have this info but donít have cable lift at TDC which is the only way I know how to time 😵

    if you dont know where to time a cam, time it to give equal intake and exhaust lift at tdc you will be very close, if your chasing top end power you might be best off running slightly more intake lift, ie time it with 80% exhaust compared to inlet. ie 1.0mm inlet lift 0.8mm exhaust, that is only an example i dont know what valve lift at tdc a standard cam has but i would guess teh figures would be about double my example

    The only way to time the above cams without a timing disc is to use the overlap method on no1 cylinder. You'll need an accurate DTI gauge to do it this way. Set both inlet and exhaust valves open by the same amount of lift. You can then experiment by giving the inlet a little more opening for more advance if required.
