I put in new head gaskets. Now When reinstalling my rear cam and sprocket for the timing belt install I can not get the cam guide pin to line up at the 11 o'clock position. Instead when I place the cam in on the valve lifters it sits at 1 o'clock. No problem with the front cam. It sits nicely at 1 o'clock. I can get the rear cam guide pin to go to the 11 o'clock position by rotating it counter clockwise against the valve spring resistance but that is not susposed to happen.:mad: Any suggestions?

Prior to this event I had everything lined up normally and then removed the timing belt for installation of the front timing belt covers. I had rotated the engine 6 revolutions per timing belt install instructions with no problems.
