Hey Guys,

I’m putting in a new cam on my 460. I started by putting my timing mark on top dead pulled the damper and I noticed a sleeve on the crank. The keyway on the crank is on the bottom and the keyway on this sleeve is on the top. It looks like the timing cover will pull over the sleeve. My question is something wrong here that the keyway on the crank is on the bottom while the sleeves keyway is on the top. I put the bolt back on the crank and turned it a tick the sleeve is moving with the crank. It’s been awhile before I go further could you guys give me your expertise on this issue....stumped at the moment...thanks a ton

The spacer / sleeve registers on the same keyway that the timing set does.

You need to remove the outer key way that registers the damper in order to remove the spacer.

Don't attempt to pull the cover off with out removing the spacer.
