    In the future, feel free to start your own thread, instead of tacking it onto a 5+ year old, semi related one.

    Can't they only go on one way? IIRC, each sprocket has 2 holes/slots for the pin in the cam to go through. 2 sprockets say RI and RE, and the other 2 say LE and LI.

    L = left
    R = right
    I = intake
    E = exhaust.

    You put the pin through either the I or E hole depending on which can you're installing it on.

    I'm confused. Why post the question in the first place in a thread that already has the answer?

    Re: Timing chain routing??

    joser, You might want to look at Post #3. There are three (3) timing chains and it takes cam locks to get everything in alignment with Cylinder 1 at TDC so you can install the sprockets, retract the 3 tensioners, set the chains, and unlock the tensioners. Did you replace the tensioner shoes and the chain guide slippers ? Oil everything.

    or, http://lmgtfy.com/?q=cadillac+forums...eplacement&l=1
