    The sliders were from the Highland dealer uk Pehr-Ola, spares for the all the Highland types with alloy swing arm. Is there a problem?

    Guys help, what size Cam adjusting tool.
    I need to install camshafts, how to install them correctly?
    I do so - the rear cams cams outwards at 45º, then I turn one turn and a little bit, on the front cylinder too it's TDC and I expose the camshafts to 45º inwards.

    Did you take the gear off the cams? Hopefully not. Did you take all 4 out?
    Do you have that tool? Do you have the "assembly" guide that's floating around? IIRC it describes how to use it.

    Yes, I took off all 4 camshafts. )
    I collect according to the instructions below.
    But there is no plate. Maybe someone measures the size between the holes in the plate.
    A = ? mm
    B = ? mm
    C = ? mm
    D = ? mm
    E = ? mm
    F = ? mm
    please

    Code:
    17.  Place two camshafts in the rear cylinder head.
    The  cam  lobes  should  point  45  degrees
    outwards.
    18.  Place  a  cam  adjusting  tool  on  the  camshaft
    ends.  Fit  the  pins  true  the  holes  in  the  tool
    market with “R” into the slot of the camshafts.
    Secure,  with  two  screws,  the  camshafts  by
    placing the cam cover on top. 
    19.  Place  the  dial  indicator  with  extension  in  the
    spark  plug  hole  and  determine  the  exact
    T.D.C.
    20.  Place  the  cam  gear  (900037-01)  on  the  cam
    shafts  and  tighten  slightly.  Remove  the  cam
    adjusting tool
    .....
    
    24.  Secure the cams with its holders and check the
    valve  clearance  with  a  feeler  gauge  (Intake:
    0.15 – 0.25 mm. Exhaust:  0.25 – 0.35 mm.)
    .....
    
    26.  Turn  the  crankshaft  one  turn  +  60  degrees,
    total 420 degrees. Position the front cylinder in
    T.D.C. and repeat the cam adjustment. Use the
    “F”mark  for  the  pins  in  the  cam  adjustment
    tool shall be used

    If you haven't loosened the bolt on the end of the cam holding the gear, tool doesn't have to be precise--1 tooth either way will be obvious.
    Good luck. I don't know how much piston to valve clearance there is so be careful.

    Very very many thanks
    Can you tell me which piston rings and what motorcycle to buy? It seems to me that with Husaber FC / FE 501 (94-09), FC / FE 600 (89-00), FC / FE 601 (94-98)) am I right or wrong?
    The piston is written 94.95.

    Have not heard of what interchanges, should be a 95mm bore, so measure the thickness of the highland rings to match up-Husaberg's should be 1.0mm,1.25mm and 2.5mm.
    What are you using for head gaskets? Have you found something that will work?

    I have installed the old head gaskets, but they seem to fit from Husaber FC / FE 501 (94-09), FC / FE 600 (89-00), FC / FE 601 (94-98)

    I have bad news, the engine is assembled, but it does not start.
    I made this plate, installed the camshafts of the rear cylinder, then turned the crankshaft to 420 degrees, and installed the camshafts of the front cylinder.
    That's how I did it.
    1. The rear cylinder. Piston in the TDC.
    I installed the camshafts on the markers R. I installed the valve cover.
    2. I turn the crankshaft one turn + and expose the piston of the front cylinder in the TDC.
    I installed the camshafts on the F marks. I installed the valve cover.
    I start the engine and it shoots fire from the release.
    Are the tags in the picture correct?

    Sorry I can't add anything on the cams. I have never been forced as yet to dig in as far as you have.

    If you haven't already reached out to John in Leeds, give it a try as he may still be in contact with Greasesnake. Johan {greasesnake} knows these engines if you can get in touch with him.

    Yes, that's correct.
    I would remove the oil lines and see if the plate still fits on the cams now. You can't change the timing with the valve covers still on but you can check it. Maybe a cam slipped in the gear, maybe the chain slipped?
    What do you mean fire from the "release"?
