Question about 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse
I blew my head gasket and got everything back together but, I don't know if its timed right. I didn't take off the timing belt all the way. I only took it off the cam gears and didn't move on the crank. I noticed the notches on the cam gears but don't know how to line them up. I just wanna get it lined up just close enough to drive it somewhere to get it truly timed. If I can do that without bending the valves. Thanks
The timing marks on your crank and cam crank need to be one on top of the other if you understand what i mean. anyway if this is done correctly, your cam should make two revolutions to one of the crank thus after one full revolution of the crankshat gear your camshaft gear should do 2 revolutions and you timing marks should be next to one another
