All of the police interceptors I know about usually had at least a 442 or larger engine. Never heard of a 3.1 being used as an interceptor... Hope is helps...

    you could be right about the engine size but as police vehicles have serious motors installed then it would be unlikely that they would sell off a veicle that they could not catch so they would fit it with a standard motor of reduced power.

Yes it is an interference engine and if the belt breaks it will damage the valves.

I have an Isuzu kb 350 and has a broken timing belt and now is failing to start because of not sure of piston position in relation to dual camshafts

be VERY careful! Most engines are interference motors and a bust timing belt results in catastrophic failure when the valves contact the pistons because they are out of sync!

Timing belts usually come with markings - you would almost certainly find the compression TDC for cylinder 1 (not exhaust TDC - if the air blows thru plug hole when piston is rising its compression - if the air is NOT blowing out plug hole its exhaust tdc - rotate once more).

Now you will have to find the timing marks on the camshaft(s) and set according to the manual.
