There is timing marks on the cam sprockets and on the crank pulley just line these up. Place your timing belt on and your good. you can stop by a local vectra dealer for a diagram of the marks and where they go.

Your camshaft and crankshaft pulleys have to be properly aligned upon installation of the timing belt. The cogs on the belt, should fit precisely with the teeth of the pulleys. Your # 1 engine cylinder should be moved to "Top Dead Center" before installing the belt. This means no compression once the top of the piston cylinder reaches the top of the chamber.

hey, torque must be done in 3 steps:
1st 22 ft lbs
2nd 43 ft lbs
final 47 ft lbs
use this sequence of tightening:
9 - 3 -1 -6 -8
7 - 5 - 2 -4 - 10

On some 4.3 engines, when the timing marks line up, the #4 cylinder is the TDC. So you may have to point your distributor to #4. And look at your cap, sometimes, where the #4 wire joins the cap, the wire "inside" the cap may run to the other side of the cap, so look inside to see exactly where your rotor should be pointing.

All i can think of is the thermostat is not opening. or you may have a clog somewhere preventing the flow. Check the T-stat and hoses and radiator ( for clogs) Good luck
