i had this discussion w/ charles last week when i ordered my IMS bearing. he said that indeed we SHOULD lock the cams, but that generally, not doing so, as long as the motor is locked to TDC, will probably be okay.

his advice to me if i choose NOT to lock the cams (which i will not, btw) is to pull the green plugs & mark the cam positions. this way, if i jump time, i will be able to tell that it has occured & have the problem rectified before i fire it up & cause damage.
