It would be tricky to get it wrong, but it's not impossible.

What's SUPPOSED to happen is that the holes are all pointing out,

away from the cam, as CD says, and you rotate them further out

to tighten the lash.

I tried reversing 'em once, and that just didn't work. Ok, it was accidental,

but I looked at it and thought, 'hey, I'll try this'. It failed. I couldn't get to the

adjusting holes.

A reground cam with oversized adjusters will have a different 'range' than

a standard one- depending on the size of the base circle, the adjusters

may be much farther 'around' on their clocking.

help any?
