Please tell me if I checked this right...
I aligned the marks on camshaft sprocket to cam bearing housing by turning crank in direction of normal rotation.
Then I read 4 degrees on the (is it a harmonic balancer?)
How much is too much? Will the engine start running rough as this stretch (wear?) increases? When should it be replaced?
Thanx in advance for responses.

I know on the later engines, the max is 3 degrees.
