I have a Proform cam degreeing kit and the degree wheel hole diameter for the crank bolt is 1.00". However, an Olds balancer bolt is 3/4"-16. Has anyone done something to get the degree wheel centered?

Also, if the bolt holding the degree wheel on is used to turn the engine both ways, it seems to want to come loose when turning the engine counterclockwise. How is this avoided?

Not centered

I really wanna get this cam position checked, verified and move on with assembly of the 455.
Any suggestions?

Yeah, I knew this existed. Holy hell it is expensive but will make mounting my degree wheel so much easier. I will pick up one from Summit when I get the Holley in tank fuel module and Mr.Gasket fuel pump relay kit. Hopefully your cam and timing set are accurate.
