Vb Commodore 308 id

I have a 79 vb 308 that I have purchased as a project. The engine number is missing so I assume the block must have been decked at some stage. My confusion is that the date code just above the water pump at the front appears to be stamped 4K4. From my search on the internet and Old Holdens this date code works out to be 4th October 1984. Is this correct and how can I verify it? The out of date license papers has the engine number as VT#### so that tells me that it was licenced as a 308 plus L31 on compliance plate. Doesn't mean much but motor is red.

Cam Alignment

Seeking thoughts and opportunities to sound out with all, what the issue could be. Putting together another 179, does have new cam, timing gear, powerbond balancer.

Coming to adjust the rockers, at TDC cylinder 1, expect to see valves 7&9 fully open. They are not, and do not open until the timing mark has rotated 180 degrees.

At TDC Valves 1&2 are both closed as they should be

I could understand if the timing gear marks were not aligned correctly, but I am 100% certain that they are.

Welcome thoughts and experience, comments

Thanks
Tom
