If it is the crank shaft you are talking about you may be in trouble quite often when the pulleys come off the damage the end of the crank and this can cause fether problems. the is a special tool to secure the pulley so i recommend if you are not shore take it to a mechanic and get him to check the crank and refite the pully.
if it is only a small hole it should be ok but if it has done extnsive damage to the cover our a piece of the cover has allen in you realy should get it replaced as it cauld make the cam belt jump teath and destoy your engine

How to set ignition timing on mk 1 golf


it is simple my dear Mr.Flemming. Before you remove the timing belt just be sure the car is working fine without any problem,remove the alternator belt and power steering belt,remove the timing cover and by hand hand using a socket and ratchet turn clockwise to align the marks on the crank shaft and camshaft ( if you have marks.) if not do practical point by removing the first spark plug and by putting in a thin screwdriver turn slowly slowly watching the screwdriver to come out showing the top end of piston and also check the camshaft to have the last piston valves to be on balance. there you can put at the end of the camshaft a bracket thick according to the camshaft end grove . doing so you lock the camshaft.Mark with paint the crank position on the timing belt side sprocket.then you loose the timing tensioner and remove the cam belt. check about the seals of crank shaft and camshaft not leaking if so renew them.renew the tensioner and the belt. tightening the belt on the tensioner there are two tiny holes by using a tool fitted in the holes go clockwise tightening checking with hand the belt tension just the belt could turn on side slightly- and tight the nut. If tension is correct, remove the bracket from the camshaft and do turn two times clockwise and check whether the marks are aligned. Good luck.

How do i set the camshafts on my 06 kiario. the shop manual i have is a joke. it wont work.


Align the hole in the cam sprocket with the mark on the cylinder head. Align the "T" mark on the timing cover with the marks on the crankshaft pully. If you already have the belt off, you will have to put the cover and the pully back on temporarily to get the crank aligned.

Need to change timming belt 1997 geo tracker


TIMING BELT CHANGE You should have some mechanical skills before attempting any engine maintenance! These are basic instructions, and you must knoe what you removed, when, and what order so you can reinstall them in order. First, you have to remove everything in the way! You need to remove the Fan, clutch, and shroud, pump pully & drive belts. Next, you need to remove the Crank Pully:

1. Crank Pully Bolt 2. Crank Pully 3. Center Bolt 4. 5mm Hex drive (used to remove pully bolts) Once the fan stuff, and pully(s) are removed, then you need to remove the Timing Belt cover:

Once the cover is removed, you will need to loosen the adjusting nut and pully bolt on the Belt Tensioner:
A. Adjust Nut B. Pully Bolt C. TENSIONER PULLY Once the the Adjust Nut, and Pully bolt are loose, move the pully as far towards the water pump as possible.
Then, you can slip the timing belt from the sprockets. Check the tensioner for roughness and excess play! DO NOT MOVE THE CAM OR CRANK SPROCKETS! IF you do, then you will have to line up the Crank and Cam for piston number one at Top Dead Center before placing the new timing belt on! Note the timing marks on the crank and camshaft sprockets. IF YOU MUST! Allign the Cam and Crank at piston#1, Top Dead Center before removing the belt. Each sprocket has a small hole, with a line through it, and there is a small groove or "V" it alligns with on the engine. Now, once the timing belt is off, look at your new timing belt. Older belts use the Squared off teeth, while new ones have the rounded teeth. Make sure you have the correct belt for your sprockets! Never reinstall a belt that is in questionable condition. BELT WEAR CONDITIONS
If there are Arrows on the belt, they must be pointing to the RIGHT when you put the new belt on the sprockets. If there isn't one, then paint one on, and place the belt back on the sprockets. The arrow will indicate to a mechanic, this is the way the belt must be put back on (if they replace any cam or crank oil seals). Slip the new belt onto the Crank sprocket. While maintaining tension on the side of the belt opposite the tensioner, slip the belt onto the Camshaft sprocket. Releace the Tensioner adjusting nut to allow spring tension against the belt. Temporarily reinstall the crank pully, taking care to align the notch in the pully with the raised area on the sprocket. Rotate the crank clockwise two complete revolutions. Recheck the alignment of the of the valve timing marks. If they do not align properly, loosen the tensioner, slip the belt off the crank pully, align the timing marks, reinstall the belt, and check alignment again. Tighten the tensioner nut, then the bolt. Reinstall all parts removed, in the opposite order, of course. Start the engine and allow to reach normal operating temp, then road test. THEORETICALLY, you should simply be able to replace the belt with the new one, and go, as long as you did not move any of the sprockets when removing or installing the belt. Most people do it this way, and do not test for alignment before replacing everything. When the belt wears, timing will be off, very little, and this is why you check alignment. The belt may have slipped a tooth, making the timing off. This is why the Cam and Crank sprockets must both align properly. An experienced person will do just that: Replace the belt, and go. It really isn't all that hard. It helps to have a second person around with some experience also.

Where are the timing marks on a 3.1 td bighorn


Only one timing mark which is on the main shaft. The injector pump and camshaft are timed with a bolt.. their is a small hole in the camshaft and injector pullys and a treaded hole in the engine behind them. Keep turning the engine until the mark on the bottom shaft is looking up and the holes in the pullys are lined with the holes in the engine if you are changing the belt or chain(***.Import) then put in two screw's if you are just checking the timing then a screwdriver will do. Cheers

Fan belt pully on camshaft has worked loose


You need to consult a manual because if cam pulley came loose this will cause problem with timing and if you have what is refered to an interfearence motor you will bend your valves if you havent already done so...If pulley did not come all the way loose due to timing cover not permitting this is a great sign...The camshaft pulley is attatched by a bolt i believe it is a 14mm make sure the reference marks for timing belt install all match...when putting bolt on cam pulley use locktite so this does not happen again, I hope this helps and you dont have bent valves already....Good Luck
