My mate Andrew took me through it when he was helping me build my last engine, it baffled the bananas out of me then!
However with what he showed me then, I can now get my head round reading through the Dave Andrews guide to cam timing, which is well worth reading and following as you go.
I was going to time mine up to the spec that Piper dictate but Iíve since decided to leave it as factory and play with it on the rolling road instead.

I'm glad u chose to do that. In my opinion it saves it doing your nutt in and then doing it again.after all its only when on the rollers you can see what has been gained

We can play with a little then to move the power and torque around to try and make it more useable.
