Pull all the tensioners and index them for reinstallation..

Once the tensioners are pulled the shaft will easily recenter in the bore...

We are doing an install DVD on this, but do not have it completed yet.

Great, thanks for the input. Should I be worried about the cams being off timing now? I haven't rotated the motor.

Thanks again,
John

You should have pulled the tensioners first... BUT if the engine hasn't rotated the timing could not have moved...
