Degreeing cams: engine removal?

yes, it can be done. its not bad. the most important thing is getting a very adjustable gauge holder - one of those cobra link style to hold the needle gauge at the right angle - that is the pain in the *** part because its hard to get in the right angle. After that its not bad.

good luck

Well it can be done, it is just a lot more challenging to accomplish.

Oh and I still have to send you a reply to your last PM. I'll send it tomorrow....

Yep. I did it. It can be frustrating, but is probably less time consuming than removing the engine.

Dumb question, but what exactly does degreeing a cam do? I've seen articles on how to do it, but I don't get what it's meant to accomplish.

JamieDaugherty is an unknown quantity at this point
Should be pretty easy with the engine in place. I think the extra time/effort would not be worth it - you would be ahead to just leave it in place. That's what I have already done and never found it to be a problem.
