Ok, I'm in a mess, friend asks me to change his timign belt for him, so I
figure what the hell in exchange for a case of beer I'll do it. So we get
started on it, at night and like an idiot I start ripping it apart a little
over confident because I've dont it 1000 times on Volvos. Well on the
auxiliary shaft theres two marks, and theres also two marks on the camshaft
sprocket. Too compound things I don't know if the engine is at TDC on the
compression stroke or the exhaust stroke. I think I've tried nearly every
possibility of these options 100 times and it still wont start.....I had
some issues getting the crankshaft pulley off and may have damaged the
crankshaft sensor, like I need something else to compound this
problem....not to mention the fact that I'm working on it over at his house
without all my tools! Please I'd appreciate any feedback I could get on
this, I'm sure its something small I'm overlooking...anyone know of a way to
test that crank sensor??
Bob, I shouldn't do this but........I don't need to tell you that a proper
manual..........well you know.
*NOTE: Care must be taken during timing belt installation to prevent damage to
the inner timing cover.
If not done:
Loosen tensioner adjusting bolt.
Using Camshaft Belt Tension Adjusting Tool T74P-6254-A, pry tensioner clockwise
against spring tension as far as possible.
Tighten adjusting bolt to hold tensioner in released position.
Align crankshaft so number one piston is at TDC (top dead center) with
crankshaft key pointing straight up and circle on crankshaft sprocket (6306)
aligned with notch in engine front cover (6019).
Align triangle on camshaft sprocket with triangle on inner timing belt cover.
Align diamond on oil pump sprocket with diamond on inner timing belt cover.*
So you know, the engine is free-wheeling so no damage to valves should have
occurred. I doubt you damaged the crank sensor unless your a butcher, but I
don't know that. Any way, as always check for the basics spark...........
Thanks, Bob, and thanks Thomas actually believe it or not I did have a
manual, it's a shitty one though that doesn't mention the diamond or the
triangle, it just mentioned arrows thanks for clarifying. I'll be working
on it today thanks for your input!
