    One is keyed, the other is not.

    Me thinks you need a Helm manual.

    :werd: the keyed one is the intake cam and it is keyed for your distributor.

    if you cant figure this out how are you gonna install the cams?
    do you own a torque wrench?
    a manual is 40 bucks and the first tool you buy when you get a car

    its not a "weird ass reason" that you can just shrug off and fix. if they dont fix, and you have the intake and exhaust cams in the right place, then they are most likely the wrong cams.

    all he would have to do is cut them add a washer in between them and weld them back together...that should make them reach to the end. doesn't sound too hard.

    or you could put in a duct tape spacer.

    i think you should send the cams back, and tell them they are the wrong ones, and get the right set.
