If i knew what engine this was i might remember from previous work but i seem to remember doing a water pump on a 4 inline single cam one and the marks were easy even for me but if unsure then make sure pistons are in the middle then look at the camshaft and time it up from their using basics then when you know its more or less correct you then look for any marks or a slot on the back of the cam that should be level ,so its basically no1 at TDC with inlet vale cam pointing to just closed and up and to the left and the exhaust cam pointing in the opposite direction with getting ready to open .Yes iam aware that some engine use valve overlap ect ect but follow this advice and cannot go wrong or crunch the valves ,take no1 plug out and use a long thing screwdriver to watch the piston movement although all engines have the keyway pointing to the top of the engine except on modern vehicles that do not have a keyway anymore .

Removing the lower timing belt cover

  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the engine under covers and drain engine coolant from the radiator; be careful not to allow coolant to contact drive belts.
  3. Remove the front right side wheel and tire assembly. Remove the engine side cover.
  4. Remove the drive belts from the engine.
  5. Rotate the crankshaft to position the No. 1 cylinder at the TDC of it's compression stroke.
  6. Remove the upper radiator hose and the water inlet hose. Remove the water pump pulley.
  7. Remove the idler bracket of the compressor drive belt.
  8. Remove the crankshaft damper. It may be necessary to use a puller to remove the crankshaft damper from the crankshaft.
  9. Remove the upper and lower timing belt covers.
  10. Make sure the punch marks on the camshaft sprockets align with the punch marks on the rear timing belt cover and the punch mark on the crankshaft sprocket aligns with the punch mark on the oil pump.
Fig. 1: Line up the punchmarks on the sprockets with the marks on the rear timing belt cover before removal of the belt

  1. Loosen the timing belt idler pulley bolt. Using a hexagon wrench, rotate the idler pulley to release it's tension and remove the timing belt.
Fig. 2: After the timing marks are lined up, loosen the tensioner and remove the belt

Be careful not to bend the new belt installing it. Timing belts are designed to flex only the way they turn around the pulleys.
To install:
After removing timing belt, do not rotate crankshaft and camshaft separately, because valves will hit piston heads.
  1. Confirm that No. 1 cylinder is at TDC on its compression stroke. Install tensioner and tensioner spring. If stud is removed apply locking sealant to threads before installing.
Fig. 3: Make sure the aligning marks are correct before installing the timing belt onto the sprockets

  1. Swing tensioner fully clockwise with hexagon wrench and temporarily tighten locknut.
Fig. 4: The tensioner uses a spring to aid in tensioning the timing belt. Be sure to use locking sealant when replacing the stud.

  1. Set timing belt, align the arrow on the timing belt forward. Align the white lines on the timing belt with the punch marks on all 3 pulleys.
There are 133 total timing belt teeth. If timing belt is installed correctly there will be 40 teeth between left and right camshaft sprocket timing marks. There will be 43 teeth between left camshaft sprocket and crankshaft sprocket timing marks

Timing chain setting

Your camshaft and your crankshaft have marks on them. Your timing chain also has marks on it. The timing marks MUST ALL line up at the same time before you move your internal parts. The easiest way to do this is to take out your spark plugs and after tou get the chain, chain tensioner and chain damper on, turn the engine with a wrench watch the marks. The number 1 cylinder should be at tdc.
