Finishing up a carb rebuilding project on a bike that has been idol for 5 years. synking the carbs when I noticed a scraping and rubbing noise on the left timing cover side. also noticed the cover getting very hot quickly. took the timing cover off and the pully started rubbing the inside of housing. became very warped.??????? What would make the pully all of a sudden warp? I almost ready to put it back on the road and dont want the other side to do the same. what say the forum? fluke of nature? bad karma? sign from Above?

Im installing my new belts.
My left pulley has its timing mark a tooth or two above the cover plate’s alignment mark. In order to get it to lign up, i need to rotate the pulley somewhat clockwise, which has a cam lobe starting to engage a valve. The adjusters are backed out all the way. Does this sound correct? After reading all the how to’s I was under the impression the left side cam will not be engaged when setting the timing belt...?
