Even with manual in hand I still have a question. When installing the camshaft in a CB350, with the LF mark on the rotor at the reference mark and the L mark on the cam sprocket at 12 o'clock and that FLAT parallel to the head surface, which way does the little pin in the timing end of the cam point? Up or down? Seems I could get the cam 180 degrees out.

I am almost positive that it points to 12 o-clock. I think that the ridge/line on the cam sprocket is off center so that you can't get it confused and put the cam 180 degrees out. If the bike only has 1 coil firing 2 cylinders at the same time ( wasted spark) I don't think it would matter if the cam was out 180.

I got it, called a friend that knew. It will only go one way. The cam sprocket bolt holes only line up with the pin pointed up. However it would matter as this is 180 degree twin with two coils.
Thanks,
Brad
