Question about 2001 Saturn L-Series
I have the 2.2 liter motor in a 2001 l200 sedanand and am replacing the timing chain myself. on alldata.com they saidbefore i pull off the crank shaft pulley i need to put it at 60 degreesbtdc before pulling it off. they do not mention how to get it there orhow to come up with a plan on getting it there. any ideas on how tomanually set this?
p.s. the cartoon on the website has one of the webs of the crankshaft pullley strait up and down that is all i can make out.
Usually at the crankshaft pulley it has markings/graduations to match alongside the front cover. These markings indicate the position before TDC. I am more familiar with Toyota vehicles, but the saem principle should be applied to other vehicles. Markings for Toyota would be about 4 strokes, starting from 0 then 5, 10, 15 etc. These indicate the amount of defrees BTDC. You will have to check to c how urs is
