Degreeing the cam. I'm using a Romac/Rollermaster timing set, double roller, 9-way adjustable. It's also 0.005 shorter to make up for the block having been align honed. The fit is very good - VERY little slack.
In order to get the cam intake centerline installed according to Bullet's specs (106 degrees) I wound up needing to use the timing set's 4-degrees advanced setting which, interestingly enough, also caused the 0.050 intake and exhaust opening/closing events to shift about 2-3 degrees from what's printed on the cam card.
I've also included a photo that shows a tip I learned/copied/stole from Paul Spotts. If you file a slight bevel onto the nose of the crank and cam keys, it makes it a TON easier to install the parts that have to engage with the key. Maybe everyone else already knew this, but it was new to me.
Just for grins, I also measured cam lobe lift for both intake and exhaust lobes at every 10-degrees of crank rotation.
