remember to verify the TDC markings on your timing tabs and damper, you might find that reality and the parts you selected don,t agree

chevy used two totally different sbc timing tab locations and damper marking systems over the years its likely you have the wrong timing tab and damper combo, thats one reason I suggest degreeing any new cam in, it helps spot miss matches like this.
the rather traditional timing tab location at about 2 0,clock has been changed to close to the 12 o,clock location on some dampers and engines because in some cars it was nearly impossible to use a timing light at the original location
