I am having a problem while attempting to replace the belt in the Nissan LD20-2 diesel engine. How can I reset the timing on the engine without causing any problems?

SOURCE: 2002 Nissan Frontier timing belt
Timing belts are found on the 3.3L engines, timing chains are on the 2.4L engines. The 2002 3.3L Timing belt is changed at 105K during the major service. This service can run over one thousand dollars. It is recommended to replace the belt, tensioner and idlers, cam and crank seals, water pump, and both belts when changing the timing belt. That way, you only open up the front of the engine every 105K. Why change the timing belt and have a water pump start leaking only 20K later and ruin the belt with antifreeze? Other items during the 105K are a major tune up with all the fluids changed and a lube. This does get expensive. You can break it up into several blocks of time and spread the related service items out over a few months to take some of the sting off.

the gears of the timing are marked with little indents on the gears and little dimples in the tin behind the gears on the cams and on the bottom gear (crank shaft) there is on the aluminum housing behind it the top is open and on the front side is a lip that only goes a short distance half inch or so and then it has a notch in that lip and goes back to the lip . thats the bottom timing notch . you line up the notch and the marks and its right ... turn the engin over twice and check it .. it should still be the same .. the timing belt needs to be only so tight so dont over do the adjustment .. half an inch of deflection at twenty pounds of presure .. measure it between the rear of the car cam and the tension adjuster .. half an inch should be measured as its more movement then normaly figured as tight i thought .. good luck .. paul in sw idaho
