Engine Master Needed- Get paid $

Hey you, yeah you, the guy (or gal) that can split a crankcase with one hand tied behind his back. I need your knowledge and proficiency with engines. I up real good this time.

So I have a 1996 Kawasaki KLX 650c, I was tinkering with it (I should really stop doing this as all my bike problems start here) and I took the cams out without putting the engine at TDC (this post will have many opportunities for a good flaming) or marking the chain or cams. So I put the cams back in per the manual. But it seems as though when I was tinkering, I either put the cams in wrong (highly doubt this as I did everything the manual says to) or the lower cam chain on the "jackshaft" skipped a tooth when I released the cam chain tensioner. With the engine at TDC the intake cam is dead on correct but the exhaust cam is advanced like 1/2 tooth.

Long story short I have an engine not timed and I have never gotten this deep into an engine before so I'm seeking out an engine master's help or if you have advice that leads me to fix the issue. I pay in American currency and/or alcohol!

Put it back about 1/2 tooth the opposite direction. Install cam chain tensioner, spin engine over twice. Should be spot on. Works for me whenever I got a problem cam that never seems to line up right

If your going to pull the flywheel, special tools may be required.

Not familiar with that engine but there should be markings on the flywheel to indicate tdc.

You don't have to have it at TDC when pulling it. if you have timing marks on the fly wheel which is usually the case and timing marks on the cams then you set the fly wheel mark to TDC first then install the cams on there marks making sure that all the chain slack is pulled back to the tensioner side.
