Question about 1983 Ford Escort Gt
Not sure I am following, but it should like instead of simply lining up the marks as one would normally do, you want the theory?
Anyway, the point of a camshaft timing is to not only make sure the intake opens when the piston goes down, closes going up for compression, stays closed while going down for power, but then opens going up for exhaust, but that it also matches the distributer.
The easiest thing to do if a cam had no marks, would be to compare it with the original, and just transfer the marks. If it is more of a "full race" cam, it will have lobes more advanced for opening, but will also have more lobe retention on the other end as well, so will still be symmetric, I believe. In effect a less sharp lobe. Anyway, the angle is always given relative to TDC on the crankshaft.
