SOURCE: Hi, I need to replace the timing belt on my

Here is the easy one. .When you are ready to do it.
1- Take out all Spark plugs so you can turn the crank shaft easily to allign Crank shaft mark hole with the 0 timing mark as well as the cam shaft mark with the V mark. This is to ensure you are at Top Dead Center.
2- Put in a screw driver at cylinder # 1 to make tuoch the top of the piston to make sure it is at the top of the compression. After confirmation pull out the screw driver.
3- Keep everything in the same place, so it make it easier for you to look for the valve position associated with Piston position....
4- Start to take out the old timing belt.
5- If you use any force to losen up the Crank shaft bolt, make sure allign the mark back to the ark before completely remove the crank shaft bolt so you don't miss the Top Dead Center mark later with the new time ming belt.
6- Put in the timing belt, make sure all mark are not moving.
7- Put back everything plus spark plugs.
8- You are done.
Good luck.

How to put timing belt in a 92 Suzuki swift gt

Ok, this is an image of a 92 Suzuki Swift twin cam.
There are some marks in the sprocket that are suppose to be align with the mark on the housing. At the bottom is the same thing, align the marks together. I do recommend that you change the tensioner. Once all of the marks are align, it's time to install the timing belt, if any of the sprockets gets out of line, you need to do it all over again.
If it happens that you have a single cam would be the same thing, but instead of 2 sprockets at the top, it would be just one. But the procedure is the same thing.
Everything must dry, no water, dust or oil in the timing belt, if the timing belt gets soak in oil, you better buy another one.

Install the timing belt on the sprockets so that there is no slack in the drive side of the belt (1), then install the tensioning assembly...

Valve timing check

Chain drive. Unless the engine's been apart, why would the cam/valve timing change?
Valve clearances are another matter, and unless you want to remove the camshafts, get a mechanic who has the proper Suzuki tool to do them for you. You can measure the clearances, but the shims are between the cam lobe and the valve bucket, and the special tool holds the bucket down whilst changing to a thicker or thinner shim.
