SOURCE: cam timing

I received this explanation for the 1800 Subaru Leone (same vehicle i think) from another forum. Have yet to make use of it but I hope it helps.

Find top dead centre of Crankshaft. (there are 3 timing marks close together, the middle one is TDC). If you are still unsure then remove number one spark plug and insert a long small screw driver down the hole with the piston near the top of it's stroke. As you rock the engine over back and forth you will feel TDC with the screw driver. By tracing the number one cylinder plucg lead back the distributor cap and then removing the cap you should be able to see if the engine is at number one in the firing sequence.

Rotate the drivers side camshaft

Now rotate the crankshaft one hole turn till the 3 marks are re-aligned.

Now rotate the passenger side camshaft until the hole in the sprocket lines up the the slot in the top of the cam cover. Put belt on.

Rotate the crankshaft 2 whole turns and double check that the sprockets still line up to their respective marks.

Start engine

SOURCE: timing belt broke on car

The #1 piston must be at the top (Top Dead Center or TDC). Having said that it is still possible to get it wrong because the crankshaft turns twice to every 1 turn of the camshaft. Watch your valves as you turn the engine. The correct TDC occurs when the intake valve closes as you near the top and as you go past the exhaust valve starts to open. If the reverse is happening then your car will not start.
If you have an interference engine the timing must be done separately, the block with #1 at the top and the head with the valves opening in the right sequence before you place the head on the block. Otherwise you run a substansial risk of bending a valve or 2. If you already have the head on the car and discover the timing is wrong, remove the head before you try to correct it. A call to the dealer will confirm or deny the fact of whether it is interference or not. You should also send the head to a local rebuilder if it is to be checked for bent valves, before you put it back together. If you don't it will run like **** if it starts.
Hope this helps.

How do I retime my engine


The cam shaft should be keyed so the gear cannot be wrong. Look for a mark on the gear and one on the head. Line those up. On the crank shaft use the timing mark and guide and line up to TDC or 0 and put the chain back on.

you need to look into your specs of your vehicle.. look to see if your car is a non interference motor if it isent most likely you bent a valve. if it is then u might just be binding up with your valve and piston do not try and put a bunch of presure on it!!!!! u need to raise your cams then move crankshaft.. let me know what happins.....

Repairing bad cam gear


yes it will come off, ensure you do not drop the chain down into the front cover though, or you will need to pull the cover and retime the engine, the cam will need to be locked into position or the followers removed or the cam may spin when gear is loosened.
