First question- did you use a HONDA chain? It has marked links for the cam gears and crank gear positions. Second question- was the VTC actuator (front cam gear) in 'locked' position , before installation?

First Yes. 2nd will have to check as the machine shop was paid to set the cams. Thank you for this info. I will let you when we get to the cam and re check/ set it.
