Default Intake camshaft and Exhaust camshaft

I replaced the head on my 01 pt cruiser and after lining all timing marks up I should be able to manually crank them 2 full turns but it only goes about a 1/4 of a turn and stops. Are the intake camshaft and exhaust camshaft the same size?

Welcome to the forum.

Are all the spark plugs out when you are turning the crank?

Much harder to do so with plugs in. Picks of you marks helps. Also look in the technical section and look for the how to section. In there is a thread called HARMONIC BALANCER TIPS AND TRICKS. I have some great picks of what your into.
Lot of good threads there forever r this and other repaires.

i believe you should be able to tell where the magnet attaches to the back of the cam(for the cam sensor) to see which one goes where

To answer your question... Yes, you should be able to turn the engine over by hand as many times as you want to, if nothing is hitting to prevent this. And to repeat someone else's statement, it is easier when the plugs are out.
