Hi there,

Camshafts turn at one half crankshaft speed . . . the mark moves to the side opposite where it's starts. ou will need to rotate twice on the crank for all four strokes. You'll probly notice where the belt goes over the crankshaft is about halft the size of where the belt goes over the cam shaft, so you can physically see that it will take two crank revolutions for one cam revolution.

Let me know for further clarifications.

    Timing chain is only available in the 3.3L and 3.8L engines.

    Yours has a belt. (if you're SURE its a 3.0L)

    Here is the info on changing it...

    3.0L Engine
    The timing belt can be inspected by removing the upper front outer timing belt cover.
    Working on any engine (especially overhead camshaft engines) requires much care be given to valve timing. It is good practice to set the engine up at TDC No. 1 cylinder firing position before beginning work. Verify that all timing marks on the crankshaft and camshaft sprockets are properly aligned before removing the timing belt and starting camshaft service. This serves as a point of reference for all work that follows. Valve timing is very important and engine damage will result if the work is incorrect.
    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. Remove the accessory drive belts. Remove the engine mount insulator from the engine support bracket.
    3. Remove the engine support bracket. Remove the crankshaft pulleys and torsional damper. Remove the timing belt covers.
    4. Rotate the crankshaft until the sprocket timing marks are aligned. The crankshaft sprocket timing mark should align with the oil pump timing mark. The rear camshaft sprocket timing mark should align with the generator bracket timing mark and the front camshaft sprocket timing mark should align with the inner timing belt cover timing mark.
    5. If the belt is to be reused, mark the direction of rotation on the belt for installation reference.
    6. Loosen the timing belt tensioner bolt and remove the timing belt.
    7. If necessary, remove the timing belt tensioner.
    8. Remove the crankshaft sprocket flange shield and crankshaft sprocket.
    9. Hold the camshaft sprocket using spanner tool MB990775, or equivalent, and remove the camshaft sprocket bolt and washer. Remove the camshaft sprocket.
    10. To install:
    11. Install the camshaft sprocket on the camshaft with the retaining bolt and washer. Hold the camshaft sprocket using spanner tool MB990775, or equivalent, and tighten the bolt to 70 ft. lbs. (95 Nm).
    12. Install the crankshaft sprocket.
    13. If removed, install the timing belt tensioner and tensioner spring. Hook the spring upper end to the water pump pin and the lower end to the tensioner bracket with the hook out.
    14. Turn the timing belt tensioner counterclockwise full travel in the adjustment slot and tighten the bolt to temporarily hold it in this position.
    15. Rotate the crankshaft sprocket until its timing mark is aligned with the oil pump timing mark.
    16. Rotate the rear camshaft sprocket until its timing mark is aligned with the timing mark on the generator bracket.
    17. Rotate the front (radiator side) camshaft sprocket until its mark is aligned with the timing mark on the inner timing belt cover.
    18. Install the timing belt on the crankshaft sprocket while keeping the belt tight on the tension side.
    19. Position the timing belt over the front camshaft sprocket (radiator side). Next, position the belt under the water pump pulley, then over the rear camshaft sprocket and finally over the tensioner.
    20. Apply rotating force in the opposite direction to the front camshaft sprocket (radiator side) to create tension on the timing belt tension side. Check that all timing marks are aligned.
    21. Install the crankshaft sprocket flange.
    22. Loosen the tensioner bolt and allow the tensioner spring to tension the belt.
    23. Rotate the crankshaft 2 full turns in a clockwise direction. Turn the crankshaft smoothly and in a clockwise direction only.
    24. Align the timing marks. If all marks are aligned, tighten the tensioner bolt to 250 inch lbs. (28 Nm). Otherwise repeat the installation procedure.
    25. Install the timing belt covers. Install the engine support bracket. Tighten the support bracket mounting bolts to 35 ft. lbs. (47 Nm).
    26. Install the engine mount insulator, torsional damper and crankshaft pulleys. Tighten the crankshaft pulley bolt to 112 ft. lbs. (151 Nm).
    27. Install the accessory drive belts and adjust them to the proper tension.
    28. Reconnect the negative battery cable.
    29. Run the engine and check for proper operation. Road test the vehicle.

    Removal
    1. Drain the cooling system. Refer to Section 03-03 for the procedure.
    1. Disconnect the battery ground cable (14301) .
    1. Remove the generator drive belt, water pump and power steering pump drive belt, and the A/C compressor drive belt (if equipped). Refer to Section 03-05 for the removal procedure.
    1. If equipped, remove the three A/C compressor drive belt idler pulley bolts and the A/C compressor drive belt idler pulley.
    1. Remove the upper radiator hose bracket bolt.
    1. Loosen the two upper radiator hose clamps and remove the radiator hose bracket bolt. Remove the upper radiator hose (8260) and the upper radiator hose bracket from the vehicle.
    1. Remove the water bypass hose (8597) from between the thermostat housing and the water hose connection (8592) .
    1. Remove the main wiring harness from the upper engine front cover (6019) .
    1. Remove the eight upper engine front cover bolts and the upper engine front cover .
    1. Raise and support the vehicle.
    1. Remove the RH front wheel and tire assembly.
    1. Remove the four RH outer engine and transmission splash shield bolts and two screws and remove the RH outer engine and transmission splash shield (6775) .
    1. Use Strap Wrench 303-D055 (D85L-6000-A) or equivalent to hold the water pump pulley (8509) while removing the four water pump pulley bolts.
    1. Remove the water pump pulley from the water pump (8501) .
    1. Remove the crankshaft pulley (6312) . Refer to the procedure in this section.
    1. Remove the five lower engine front cover bolts and the lower engine front cover .
    2. Ensure that the timing marks between the crankshaft sprocket (6306) and the oil pump housing line up.
    3. NOTE: The directional arrow is necessary to ensure that the timing chain/belt (6268) can be reinstalled in the same direction.
    4. Loosen the timing chain/belt tensioner nut.
    5. Remove the timing chain/belt .

    6. Installation
      NOTE: Ensure that the timing marks on the camshaft sprockets (6256) and the seal plate are properly aligned. Ensure that the timing marks on the crankshaft sprocket and the oil pump housing are still aligned. NOTE: A new timing chain/belt has three white timing marks that indicate the correct timing positions of the camshafts (6250) and the crankshaft (6303) . These marks will help ensure that the engine (6007) is timed properly. When the engine is properly timed each white timing mark on the timing chain/belt will be aligned with the corresponding camshaft and crankshaft timing mark on the sprocket. Because the white timing marks are not evenly spaced you will need to refer to the following illustration for proper timing chain/belt placement. There should be 40 timing belt teeth between the timing marks of the front and rear camshaft sprockets and 43 teeth between the timing mark on the front camshaft sprocket and the timing mark on the crankshaft sprocket .

      NOTE: Verify that the camshaft timing marks are aligned with the timing marks on the seal plate, and that the crankshaft sprocket timing mark is aligned with the timing mark on the oil pump (6600) .

      Install the timing chain/belt starting at the crankshaft sprocket and moving around to the camshaft sprocket following a counterclockwise path. Do not allow any slack in the timing chain/belt between the timing sprockets. After all of the timing marks are matched up with the timing chain/belt installed, slip the timing chain/belt onto the timing chain/belt tensioner .

    well not sure exactly why it wont line up use something to turn the crank and cam to appropiate position start sliding crank gear until cam gear is touching then start to push both at same time make sure your crank key and cam pin are bothin place On many OHV pushrod engines, the crankshaft sprocket is installed on the crankshaft nose and the crankshaft is rotated to position piston #1 at TDC. At this point, a mark stamped onto the crankshaft sprocket is pointing directly upward (toward the camshaft).
    The camshaft sprocket is then temporarily bolted to the cam and used to rotate the cam until a mark stamped on the cam sprocket is pointing directly downward (toward the crankshaft). The sprocket is then removed from the cam (without allowing the cam to rotate).
    The timing chain is looped over the cam gear, the mark on the cam gear is positioned directly downward, and the chain is looped around the crankshaft sprocket. When the cam sprocket is attached to the cam, the timing marks on the crank and cam sprockets should be pointing toward one another.
