You will need 2 5/16 drill bits. There is a 5/16 hole in each cam gear. With the crankshaft 1/8 turn off TDC, turn the cam gears so the hole is down. Insert the drill bit into the hole and move the gear slow until the bits slides into a hole in the rear timing cover. Do this to both cam pulleys. When you have both bits installed, this will lock the cams. Don't turn the cams with the crank at TDC, It will bend valves. Once you have the cams locked, turn the crank 1/8 of a turn back to TDC. Don't go the other way. The TDC mark on the crank should be a dot on the gear and a arrow on the rear timing cover. Then after everything is lined up, Install the chain,guides and tensioner. After everything is installed, Turn the crank two revolutions, and line the crank back up to TDC. If the timing is right, you should be able to insert the drill bits in each cam gear. Hope this helps.

I have a 1997 z24 with a bent front frame/k member. Can it be fixed?


the front k frame can be replaced if that is where the problem is i would go to a place that has a 4 wheel alignment machine and a good alignment tech and he should be able to show you the problem as if the car is in correct alignment it should stay that way for several hundred miles if done correctly it will not go out of spec just normal driving

chk all the tools you used, sometimes one will have just enough magnetism to steal small parts when you aren't looking. chk your solvent pan or in the pully you laid aside. a parts store would have one..

it sounds to me that the sensor your talking about is the camshaft positioning sensor. It regulates how much fuel you get to your engine, so that is also why you have the fuel smell as well.
