    Curious what is involved with doing a 1 in 1 out head stud installation on the Viper? I've heard easy, and I've heard that engine needs to be moved and possibly cam/gears in the way for access.

    Surely the cams need to come out. Looking for a tutorial that's here somewhere but not having any luck.

    It can be done in the sled but cam chain and head come off and a special tool is required to set the cam timing. One tooth off and it's over

    Jan Ove (rxrider) did this years ago on his RX1. I'm pretty sure he detailed it in his sled garage page.

    Head stayed on, and he built a special tool to back the studs out one at a time.
