Rob, there is one more thing you can try, you have to be careful doing it, but it may work. Put your motor at top dead center then remove cam shaft bolt.INSTALL WEDGE and remove sprocket.Get a pair of vise grips and clamp them on the camshaft dont clamp on a journal.Note starting point of cam by making mark with paint or wite out and then twist cam clockwise and counterclockwise.You should get valve to piston contact within about 20 degree turn of cam in either direction.Try to find halfway point and stop turning cam.Then without turning cam or crank try to fit cam sproket gear back on by skipping a chainlink back or forwards and trying 1, 2 or the 3rd dowel mark.You can move the cam a little to get sprocket on just try not to move it much oneway or other.this may get you close enough to pass emissions My best guess is that you retarded the cam since it runs so poorly.This is assuming you still cant get timing cover off.It might work or it might not but I cant think of any other suggestions at this point! Later ,norm
