S13 had 240/248.
Well I'm working on my 98 and it is basically like any other s14. Intake pin is at 9ish opposed to 12o'clock and its double row. Question the 4 teeth ccw doesn't include the tooth its sitting at does it?think not cause I installed the s13 exhaust cam into intake side 4teeth including starting mark. Figure its off 1 tooth, car ran but all lumpy,shaky distrubutor/timing was fine. Finish that up tommorow.DjPantsSpecR wrote:from the looks of it, it meaning the jim wolf technology cam install page, it looks like to install the s13 exhaust cam as an intake cam in your 98 motor, you have to rotate the single row cam gear counterclockwise EIGHT total teeth.
now, this is going off the fact that the 98 intake cam has the dowel pin at 12 oclock when the first lobe is pointed away from the exhaust cam's lobe. Double row chains have the dowel pin rotated CCW 4 teeth when the 1st lobe is in the same position. So to get it to this "stock double row" position, you need to rotate the cam gear CCW four teeth first
the JWT guide will show you have to install a double row chain cam in your single row motor, but only the intake cam. to install a double row exhaust cam on the intake side of your motor you have to rotate the timing gear an ADDITIONAL 4 teeth CCW
so from your stock position, put the cam in the correct position, you will then need to rotate the cam gear counterclockwise 8 total teeth for the dowel pin to line up in the slot of the gear. Then torque it down.
be very careful, dont get in over your head, and dont blame me if you bend valves. Take a picture of your motor at TDC, and when you put everything back together, make sure the cam lobe positions look identical, then crank it over by hand, and you should be straight.
