intake cam gear line the "i" up with the dimple in the rear timing cover exhaust gear line up the e with dimple on rear timing cover above letters there should be a mark on one of the teeth line it straight up with the coorsponding dimples in the black steel cover behind gears
I can help with your timing marks.
the bottom pulley on your timing belt has a **** grove on the back part of the pulley on the seal plate behind pulley should be a mark or a triangle align those two marks
for the camshaft pulleys there should be an "l" marking on the left pulley for intake and an "E" marking for the right for exhaust side allingn each marking to the grove just above the pulleys on the seal plate directly behind the pulleys
install timing belt and make sure it isnt loose on tension side which is the right side of belt if reusing old belt make sure you have marked belt on which way belt is turning
loosen tensioner lock bolt turn crankshaft two complete revolutions in direction of rotation
make sure that marks are correctly aligned still if not start back to step one.
if ok turn crankshaft to align "S" mark of right pulley or the exhaust pulley to same mark on seal plate directly behind pulley
the timing marks are as follows... if you are not able to see the picture the intake cam gear will line up with the mating mark on the rear cover .... the "I" needs to be straight up... the exhaust cam the E needs to be straight up. the crankshaft mark is a nothch in the rear of the crank gear which needs to line up with a pointer on the front of the aluminum oil pump housing. the keyway on the crank needs to be vertical. the marks on the rear cover are dimples in the cover. this is an interferance engine DO NOT ROTATE CRANK OR CAMS WITH BELT OFF. IF YOU HAVE BROKEN THE TIMING BELT DAMAGE TO ENGINE HAS ALREADY OCCURED AND YOU WILL NEED A VALVE JOB!!!! there is no exception on this engine. if you have tried to crank it over and the belt is broken the head is no good!
