While replacing the cam chain, and aligning according to the manual, i thought what if the cam bolts used for alignment were upside down. One of the posts says it does not matter. Could someone explain why?
Thanks

The cam turns at half crank speed. Turn the crank one revolution and the cam bolts will no longer be upside down. The pistons will be in the same position as one turn of the crank ago.
