    When all that drama about the cloyes secondary chains came to surface on this forum I dropped my motor, trans, & K member and put the stock timing chains on over the course of a weekend. I set the degree wheel up and spun it around just to check & ensure the cams didn't go anywhere. They didn't...
    +1 Eric is exactly correct, I would run damper to tdc mark on compression stroke and lock cams down and make the swap. Then once back together recheck degreeing and adjust as needed, my guess is it will change slightly.

    I'll take one when you've got em ready, about to make some cam timing changes and adding this would be sweet!

    Ok so this goes on the passenger side, that's the easy valve cover to get off, so the big question is Can this be changed out with out removing the timing chain cover and worse removing the timing chains?
    Its been so long since I did the cams I can't remember if this would be possible or not...\

    BRO When can we buy this!!!?? LOL!!

    Some previously said it would not be possible to do this without removing the timing cover. It has been some time for me also. But I can't imagine being able to do it.

    This week I will be working on it. Hopefully it will be ready next week some time.

    The secondary chain is behind the primary chain meaning the primary sprocket has to come off. That big sprocket protrudes behind the front cover and from my experience there is not enough space behind the front cover to get the sprocket off the cam. Even if you could somehow get it off the cam you would have to jam something down the guide to keep the primary tensioner collapsed.

    I say: Not possible

    It may be possible, but why would you not want to upgrade the rest of the timing components....?....... food for thought there, do it right and don't take shortcuts you'll be much more happy in the end.

    finally had time to degree the cams in my engine. Took under an hour lol cloyes gears are awesome. tensioner is so far so good lol I will pry get it in the car and running within a couple weeks.

    I wonder how many pre-orders james has. I know there is a lot of guys on svtp and yellowbullet that were hunting to get some and then plus the rush on modfords... Could this be the most popular cobra engineering product yet?

    i bet he is flooded with orders for them Im curious though of how many orders he actually has. It seems ppl were waiting for this for awhile. Accufab/mmr sure pissed it down there leg not making it affordable for there customers. James could even sell them to trickflow and/or cloyes i bet so they integrate them in there kits.

    I never put in a order but have exchanged pm's with James about those and another one of his new products. I'm starting to think I should be on a list though.....
