Question about Volkswagen Beetle
If you can't find specs on this in a rebuild manual, you will need a dial indicator. find tdc on crankshaft, with #1 piston at top of stroke. Find exact point where #1cyl intake lobe on cam is 180 degrees from full open position. It is likely that you will find that there are alignment markings that will line up with reference points on block & head after you do this. The cam reference may be off by a couple of degrees, depending upon if the cam is intended to be installed "straight up" or a few degrees advanced.
