Here's Comp Cams instructions; they're pretty thorough.

EDIT: I left this out:
http://www.compcams.com/technical/in.../comp4-102.pdf

From my gathered notes:

Nick McKenney quote: (actually from na svt)
If you are going to go 4V find a 99+ Continental and take the heads complete. Degree the cams to 106-108 intake and leave the exhaust at 110 (the conti intake cams are bigger than the Marks), it will require a serious mod to the secondary gears to do this. Combine with a Mach 1 intake and thats as good as it gets without spending serious cash.


na svt:
- Ensure there is counterclockwise tension on the cams when checking the lobe centers.
- Degree int his order, left exh, left int, rt exhaust, rt int.
- Do not install the pass side gears/chains until the driver side is compeleted
- Install the followers only after the degreeing is complete

" Ensure there is counterclockwise tension on the cams when checking the lobe centers".

Just want to make sure this means : rotate crank counter clockwise like .150 before max lobe lift then clockwise come up to .050 before max lobe lift then clockwise again to .050 after max lift. What your saying is all actions in the "before and after max cam lobe readings" should all be in the clockwise rotation to load chains properly.

Yes and this requires a third hand.

IMHO do not use anything smaller than an 18" wheel.


That's all the advice I've found that wasn't in the procedure.

As far as the timing issue is concerned i guess time to look for a video i can get this better in my head if i see a video
I see, I didn’t put 2 and 2 together that this was a buildup for a 93.

The degreeing is really not that bad if you look at like you’re degreeing 4 separate pushrod engines Grog’s tips are all good too, start with the driver side exhaust since that chain is behind the passenger side one.

Thank you all for the advice and help,is greatly apprechiated.
I have still some parts to get before i start tearing into the motor and take the b heads of and put the new ones on . The temperatur need to be also in a more likeable range to have proper readings since the garage is not heated.On a sidenote i also work on a coilover setup for mn 12*s which if it works the way i want it should open a way for us to get our hands on coilovers cheaper than any other sellers, i keep you guys posted

This is worth buying, if you don't have any of these parts:

It has the solid adjustable lifter, some other very nice to have parts, and an 18" wheel.
