- Remove all necessary components for access to the timing belt cover, then remove the cover.
- Rotate the crankshaft clockwise and align the timing marks so No.1 piston will be at Top Dead Center (TDC) of the compression stroke.
- Loosen the tensioning bolt and the pivot bolt on the timing belttensioner. Move the tensioner as far as it will go toward the waterpump. Tighten the adjusting bolt.
- Mark the timing belt with an arrow showing direction of rotation if belt is to be reused.
- Remove the timing belt.
- If defective, remove the timing belt tensioner.
- Align the timing marks of the camshaft sprocket and check that the crankshaft timing marks are still in alignment.
- If removed, install the timing belt tensioner, spring and spacer with the bottom end of the spring free. Tighten the adjusting bolts lightly with the tensioner moved as far as possible away from the water pump.
- Install the free end of the spring into the locating tang on the front case.
- Position the timing belt over the crankshaft sprocket, then over the camshaft sprocket. Slip the back of the belt over the tensioner wheel.
- Turn the camshaft sprocket in the opposite of its normal direction of rotation until the straight side of the belt is tight and be sure the timing marks align.
NOTE If the timing marks are not properly aligned, shift the belt 1tooth at a time in the appropriate direction until they are aligned.
- Loosen the tensioner mounting bolts so the tensioner works,without the interference of any friction, under spring pressure. Be sure the belt follows the curve of the camshaft pulley so the teeth are engaged all the way around. Correct the path of the belt, if necessary.
- Tighten the tensioner adjusting bolt, then the tensioner pivot bolt to 15-18 ft. lbs. (20-26 Nm).
NOTE Bolts must be tightened in the stated order or tension won't be correct.
- Turn the crankshaft 1 turn clockwise until timing marks again align to seat the belt.
- Loosen both tensioner attaching bolts and let the tensioner position itself under spring tension. Retighten the bolts.
- Check belt tension by putting a finger on the water pump side ofthe tensioner wheel and pull the belt toward the water pump. The belt should move toward the pump until the teeth are approximately 1 / 2 of the way across the head of the tensioner adjusting bolt. Re-tension the belt, if necessary.
- Install the timing belt covers and all other related components.
