Default what pinto camshaft is this? cam timing won't line up

Hi all,
I have a 2 litre pinto engine from a Sierra in a Morris Oxford and I can't get my cam timing to line up with the mark on the cam pulley, it either goes one side of the dot or the other. I have inspected my camshaft and I can see the following marks in the end nearest the bulkhead
: GA Z9455
And the mark: GC 5 on the top. Is this a standard camshaft or different?
Any help will be much appreciated.
Thanks.

Hi,

I have seen this done before, is it a Series VI Oxford? I guess you have the 5 speed box as well?

Sorry, can't help you with the camshaft question though.

Dad has the same, bet it goes far better than the standard B series engine or at least it will do once you get it running.
