Default Lifan clone cam timing question

Iím putting my 15hp lifan back together after removing the governor and Iím not sure which mark to line up on the cam. There is a ďdimpleĒ on the crank and both a dimple and hole right next to each other on the camshaft. Any idea if Iíve got it correct or 1 tooth off??

Here is a picture

Hmm. That's a tricky one. I think you are lined up right. Hard to tell.

I would agree. Dimple to dimple. I think the hole is coincidencal.

That's what I was thinking as well. The balancer has a dimple on the gear as well, so I was assuming it was the same for the cam. Of course it came out with the side cover when I removed it so I couldn't see how it was assembled to begin with.

Thanks again for the help!

I would say dimple. I will look at my lifan cam next time I get out there but its 5yr old engine it may be different, I don't recall a hole there. I put a VC460 cam in it this summer.

Hello, I would go with the dimple if it was mine, I think the hole is a cut out for gear Balance.
