Question about Nissan Cars & Trucks
I lined the three belt timing marks up with the camshaft gears and crankshaft gear lined up on thier marks and # 1 piston tdc,and rotated engine over 2 turns and marks didnt line back up like book said,also tightened tension before rotating
It is normal to have to set the timing marks a couple of times before you can say they are right. If at first they don't pass the 2 turn roll around, then redo it. By the third time, you will have it right, and when you close it up, you will know its right. The car will start and you will be good for it. Patience. close isn't good enough.

Align timing pointer on transmission bellhousing with white T.D.C. mark on flexplate or flywheel, make sure up marks on each camshaft pulley at top and align marks on each pulley aligned with the edges of the cyl. head.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the suggestion. That was one thing that I had considered but it appears to be working..."
the marks on the belt itself will not line up with gear marks after rotating engine as long as engine marks line up you are fine however these are know to bend valves
