Default Play in Passenger Side Camshaft

I am pulling my heads today and just now got to the point of removing the timing belt.

During the removal of the CAM Pulley's I noticed that the passenger side pulley has about a quarter inch play. I can rotate it a quarter inch before I feel resistance from the camshaft.

Is this problematic ?????

I have photo's but don't know how to upload them

Let me get this straight so that we both understand each other.

YOu matched the timing marks on all three sprockets(5 for dohc)?
YOu removed the timing belt?
You can rotate the passenger side cam sprocket(s) about 1/3 of a turn without resistance?

Totally normal.

Not a problem. When you remove the timing belt, if you have set things properly, one cam will be loaded, and the other will unloaded. I think you are playing with the unloaded cam...

The other CAM does not want to "stand up"

I remember that this drove me nuts when I replaced the belt last time. When I align the sprocket to the timing mark it is like the cam is balancing on a needle. The slightest movement and it falls.

That is probably going to be the hardest thing about putting it all back together (I hope )
