Thank You, I thought I was going nuts. I had the GM Geo Tracker shop manual
and it did not have the correct info. With the configuration given by GM
the intake was weak and the engine would not fire. Taking the advise found
here I lined up cam & crank to TDC (firing position for #4) loosened the
timing belt turned crankshaft independently counter clockwise 1 tooth.
(360 degrees / 20 teeth = 18 degrees) with the 2 to 1 ratio between crank
and cam result retarded the valve timing by 9 degrees. Once the timing
belt was tightened again the engine fired right up.
I just wanted to write to affirm your post because advise from the
internet is always suspect.
