so i can get as far as locking the cams and getting the crank at tdc, or as close as i can possibly get it all. pop in the tensioner as told, so it all looks as should or as close as. BUT then, what exactly do you do to set this inlet adjuster unit thing up? even the autodata i have says the basics as i have just said but not about this unit? does it even matter? does it sort it self out?

other thing was, why at only 75000 miles would my engine in the intake ports be so heavily clogged with the oily black crust? its that bad ive never seen anything that bad even in a 30 year old classic ford. maybe i can pop an inline filter in the middle of that the stubby pipe under the intake mani ? or is there another breather pipe somewhere that lets oil in before this one? all the air intake seems to have a fair amount of oil in it.

any help would be appreciated

ps, car is a 98/99 s320.
