So I replaced the HG on the driver side of an EJ25. I put the head back on and torqued the bolts. After I did that there was an issue getting the cams back in. The top one went in with no issue while the bottom will not line up correctly. The diagram in the FSM shows the notches both facing up. The bottom cam will not go in with the notch up. It will go in with the notch facing down but not up. My wife spoke with the auto tech instructor at her school and he said to turn the crank until it will slide in. Tried that. No dice. Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated at this time. Thanks in advance!
