two options steve, file holes and re-dowel, like our first attempt which worked.

as bro' says, its common to elongate/slot the holes slightly and then clamp up with the 6 bolts with the dowel removed.
However on our engine, the nose for the rotor arm (If you are still using it) clamps the sprocket to the exhaust cam, on the inlet cam (to settle my nerves) we chopped the end of an old cam off, then after doing a drawing (at work :x ) , had a clamping plate turned >
Image
These are working fine on our engine that does 8k. :)

Edit: dont forget a new set of locking tabs that go under the bolt heads (part no. 11311305070)

First time round we re-dowelled the cams but apparently this is ott.

Yes well it had to be done indeed,have we ever been in any other state when I have been down!!

Glad to say the wiring was starting to make progress from the nightmare which faced me at the start of the week. At least the germans opt to use the same colour of wires for each job throughout the whole car unlike the Italians. Actually looking forward to finishing it, bit by bit.

Anyone know where we can get hold of good interconnecting relay holders?

Cheers
