  2. Remove the exhaust side spark plugs, outer timing belt cover, and crankshaft pulley.
  3. Turn the crankshaft until the number one piston is at top dead center (TDC). CAUTION
    The camshaft belt tensioner tool (303-097) can be damaged when trying to relieve belt tension if you attempt to remove the belt without first loosening both the timing belt tensioner adjusting bolt and the spring pivot bolt.
  4. Loosen the timing belt spring pivot bolt, but do not remove it at this point in the procedure.
  5. Loosen the adjusting bolt slowly and release the spring tension.
  6. Turn the tensioner with the camshaft belt tensioner tool (303-097), against the spring pressure, clockwise to the farthest position.
  7. While holding it in this position, tighten the adjusting bolt to hold the tensioner away from the belt.
  8. Remove the timing belt.
To Install:
  1. Be certain that on piston number one, the crankshaft is at TDC with the crankshaft keyway pointing straight up and the circle on the crankshaft sprocket lined up with the notch on the engine front cover.
  2. Line up the timing marks.
  3. Install the timing belt over the crankshaft sprocket going counterclockwise over the oil pump sprocket and over the camshaft sprocket.
  4. Loosen the bolt allowing the tensioner pulley to press against the timing belt. NOTE: The timing belt tensioner should not be tightened or the belt tension will not be evenly distributed over the whole belt.
  5. Turn the crankshaft two revolutions clockwise. Next, slowly bring the crank to the number one position firing position with the keyway on the crank facing up. The dot on the crankshaft gear is lined up with the notch on the front cover.
  6. Check the timing mark alignment again. If necessary, repeat the procedure.
  7. Tighten the bolts. Torque the pivot bolt to 30-40 ft-lb (40-55 Nm). Torque the adjustment/locking bolt to 26-33 ft-lb (35-45 Nm).
  8. Install the crankshaft pulley and tighten the bolt. Torque to 93-121 ft-lb (125-165 Nm).
  9. Install the outer timing belt cover and tighten the bolt. Torque to 70-106 in-lb (8-12 Nm).

  3. Remove the camshaft sprocket.
To Install:
  1. Place the key and camshaft sprocket on the shaft.
  2. Install the camshaft sprocket holding/removing tool (303-098) onto the camshaft sprocket and tighten the bolt. Torque to 52-70 ft-lb (70-95 Nm).
  3. Remove the tool then install the timing belt.
Outer Cover To Remove:
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.

97 chevy 1500 coolant leak


It is the water pump most likely,they have ,what they call a weep hole in the bottom under the pulley,so they will leak out to let you know to change them right away.If it is on the top coming from the intake area,it would be the intake,they are also bad to leak,but look at the pump,under the pulley.

Can water pump be removed and re-installed W/O removing any pulleys on a 1988 Samari Suzuki.


No. As both the water pump pump pulley and crankshaft pulley both partially cover the timing belt cover, they have to be removed to get the timing belt cover and the timing belt off. The only bolt you DON'T need to undo (unless you want to change the front crankshaft oil seal), is the centre bolt holding the crankshaft timing belt sprocket on. Only the surrounding 4 or 5 bolts need to be removed so the crankshaft pulley can be removed.
