Re installing camshafts
Hi all, as I was replacing the torsion dampener shaft bearings I decided to check the valve clearances while the motor was out, after taking the valve clearances I removed the camshafts to measure the shims that needed to be changed, to reinstall the camshafts Iíve lined everything up #1 piston to TDC aligned with crank marks and set the camshafts back in,,, how do I know for sure that when I set the TDC the piston is on the compression stroke? Is there a way to tell without having the camshafts in place?
