Figure 49. The SLP timing gear has keyways every two degrees on the crank sprocket. For this application we are going straight up at 0 degrees of timing. The crank is turned to top dead center on cylinder 1, and the 0 on the tooth becomes the timing mark to match for the cam sprocket.

Figure 50. The SLP double roller timing set installed. ARP cam bolts were used, and torqued to 25ft lbs. There is a torrington bearing behind the cam sprocket so that it doesn't wear into the retaining plate.

Figure 51. The oil gallery plug is driven in to just below flush with the face of the block.

Figure 52. The SLP oil pump is installed. Use a very light coat of rtv around the oil gallery hole, being careful not to get any in the hole itself. Lightly snug the bolts just a little more than finger tight. Turn your crankshaft 4 to 5 revolutions, and the pump will be aligned correctly. If you don't want to turn the crank, you can align it with shims also. Torque the bolts to 18ft lbs.
