I have a 2005 Gsxr 600. I disassembled the entire engine to replace piston rings and head gasket. Everything went smooth up intill I went to put my cam shafts back into my engine. I made sure i was at TDC by using the marks that line up to eachother and the cams just won’t sit flush. The exhaust cam will shit flush when it is turned left like 2 teeth left from the #2 pointing straight up. but the intake cam will not sit down no matter which way you turn it. They are the same cams that where in the bike when it did run. Just don’t know how to get them in. What am i missing

Oh ok, i checked some lifters and they all had their shims in the correct place, but i’ll go back and check them all. Then if that dosent work i’ll turn the engine 180°. I’ll let you know by tonight if it worked or not thank you very much. also what happenes if i do use a magnet?

Ok yeah i didnt remove valves during rebuild. Also yeah i know the cam journals aren’t in place, no matter which way I turn the cam they it dosent fall into the journals, there’s always a gap, if one side of the cam is flush, the side is up 1/4 of an inch. Am I just being dumb, this is my first time dealing with any can before so i’m just making sure i don’t break anything. Ok so i just want to know what my next step is. If i make sure all the shins are in place and i even turn the motor 90° and the car still dosent fall in place(into the journals) what next?

oh ok that makes sense, thank you very much. So the thing is my valves don’t move like at all, almost like they’re stuck and i can’t push any down. So if they’re suppose to compress easily something is definitely wrong. Thank you for that info.

I get that, when i get the cam journal bolts in, they have like 1/4 inch gap befofe they would sit flush before it gets really tight. Too tight. How about i just send a picture of what i mean when I get home. I’m probably explaining wrong. Thank you for the advice tho i really appreciate it wanna figure this out.
