Nope - I was installing the upper guide when I lost all of my slack. When I was putting my head back together (replaced my #14 head) - I looked in there and saw that the upper guide was going to be tough to put in - so I assumed the best time to install it was when I had the sprocket off. As I was sliding the upper guide down into the head, something tripped and away went my slack. Right now both the upper and lower guide rail pins are fully installed. Am I supposed to put the upper guide in after I install the cam sprocket? Also - none of the injector lines are connected (the injectors are not installed either).
