So that can gear was spun and I wonder can I swap the gear over to prevent the spinning again.

There's bound to be a donor engine somewhere with a cam sprocket.  Flipping it might work to make sure everything turns over, but I wouldn't run it like that.

As long as the offset is the same and you transfer the timing mark I don't see why you can't run that sprocket backwards.

I have to agree with Hillsy, if the offset is the same then no reason why you cant run her backwards.

Took some serious torque to rip that gear out... ask yourself what could interfere with the cam to cause the damage. I will buy you the head gasket if a valve is not bent  :o

Ha I typed a reply but it didn't show up. Anyway yes the cam was seized and has been replaced along with followers/rockers, the cam lobes are brand new and it spins in the head so that much was done by the previous "Mechanic" I am going to bolt the cam gear on, get the missing tappet adjusters and set the valves/timing etc then turn it over slow, if it doesn't make any bad noises and turns easy, I'll do a compression check, if that checks out, I'll keep going, if it doesn't I'll take the head back off and see what's wrong. It looks like it was put on and the guy did tell Jimmy he didn't torque the head yet so I will do that as well.
