There is no mention of the number of links but if the timing is right the colored links will be on the timing marks on the sprockets and the crankshaft
one mark will be at the 11 o'clock and the other will be at the 1 o'clock position with the crank sprocket at the 6 o'clock position
the book specifies that the crank sprocket is not keyed to the crank so you do the job at tdc of the piston
it is an interference fit engine so any crank movement or cam position adjustment has to be done with the cam shafts free of the followers or valve stems
a workshop manual will have photos and explicit directions to do the job correctly

I strongly recommend that you get a workshop manual and follow it closely as the fittment of the belt is not a straight forward job
Also it is an intereference engine which means that in the event of a belt breaking , valve damage is an almost certainty download kodi Kodi APK Download

SOURCE: 2001 volvo v70 2.4 non turbo timing belt allignment marks

Not sure if it is possible to have it run smoothly by being off a tooth.

The hash marks on the cam pulleys line up with the timing belt cover that goes over those pulleys. Should be two notches in the cover.

As for the lower marks...those aren't really visible till the lower aux. belt pulley is removed. Then you'll have a clear view of the line up marks. One on the inside and one on the outter area of the pulley itself.

When you put the t-belt is a good idea to replace the tensioner as well.

Also when you have the new belt on...adjust the tensioner so that the handle looking thing is centered between the two notches that hold the tensioner in place to the block.

After putting all that together, its a good idea to rotate the timing belt two to four rotations till the marks all line up again. That will let you know if you are hitting the valves or not.

SOURCE: had a cambelt break on

Its because your pistons on 1&4 are up top that is why your bent valves got bent you are doing exactly the same thing so turn the crank back 15degrees position your cam and reset your crank,it seems to me you may be out of your depth lets hope not or it may be expensive

99 a4 2.8 audi quattro just put heads on car set timing all timing marks and holes line up ,when turning engine over by hand u can here valves clicking on cam on drivers side not set right ?

i have a 99 audi a4 2.8 quattro i got the car and the timing belt snapped or somthing idk before i got the car but i ended up swapping the heads from a junkyard i had engine code AHA heads which had severe bent valves i did a compresson test and came back bad and swapped them from a vw passat with ATQ heads got all the head gaskets and all gaskets off ebay...the timing belt making sure everything is lined up correctly is crucial if it looks the slightest bit off on the cams you better do it again there tricky the marks for the cams are under the valve covers on the back side of the heads each cam will have a small square notch the should line up perfectly with the lines if they dont somthings not right on the heads on the flywheel/crankshaft pully..idk what its called theres a mark down there too that lines up with the flywheel/crankshaft pulley and plastic cover ..but i remember i lubed all the cams and valves down with oil before i put the the valve covers back on i remember mine tapped a little bit on first start up but it got quieter and quieter within 5 min of ideling ...also make sure you dont have the timing 180 degrees out i guess i got lucky make sure i think #1 is on compression stroke not exaust stroke





if you hear really loud tapping if it were me i know you not gonna wanna hear this but id pull the valve covers again and make sure 100% positive all marks on cams are perfectly lining up if it looks to be off a tooth you possible could have a bad timing chain tensioner on that driver side

No timing marks. All done with special tools. Pin for crankshaft at gearbox end, camshaft alignment tools, cam locking tool, chain tesion tool. If you havent done it before, leave it to a professional.

What is the timing procedure for a 2003 Audi A6 Quattro 3.0

there is a special tool as there are no timing marks, in front of the cam gears are plates with two holes in each (for location of tool) there is also a tool that protrudes into the crankshaft position sensor hole.. if you dont have access to the specialty tools , than i would engrave marks on the gears and covers to align to original positions.

Changed timing belt on 2003 Kia Sorento 3.5 ,Timing marks are lined up.Engine starts up and runs smoothly BUT has no power..? If the timing was off by one tooth,Would the car start and run smoothly and...

Being one tooth off on many engines will allow them to run well but lack power. In most cases you will find that the cam timing is retarded which changes the valve opening timing. When that happens, the engine will have gobs of low end power and will idle smoothly but will fall on it's face at higher rpm's. Race engines utilize this phenomenon to gain horsepower by doing the opposite and advancing the cam. That takes away some low end power but increases it at the top end. That needs to be done by "degreeing" the cam and is dangerous to do if you go too far as valves and pistons can crash into each other.

Im replacing the water pump, timming belt on my 1996 audi a4 v6 2.8, they told me i need an idler roller and a tetioner roller, are those two the same thing? also what is a relay roller?

The idler pulley and the tensioner pulley are different. You will need special tools to do this job. I just completed doing the timing belt on my own 96 Audi A4 Quattro.Do you have a service manual for your car as this will help you alot. The tools you need are listed in the service manual with complete directions to complete the job. There are complete timing belt kits available that include the tools needed. The reason they recommend changing all the components is because it is often one of the components that fails that causes the timing belt to break.

Working on a 2000 Audi A8. Need info on changing

If it's anything like the six cylinder engines from Audi, which I'm very familiar with, and from what I remember of the V8, you have a timing belt that drives the water pump, crank, and exhaust cams, and also includes a tensioner and an idler roller. The timing chains come into play in the cylinder heads. What Audi did was to only drive the exhaust cams off of the crank, using the timing belt, and inside each cylinder head there is a timing chain assembly that is used to drive the intake cams off the exhaust cams. On a periodic service (like the timing service) you only need to do the timing belt. The timing chains are only replaced if the tensioners fail - you'll know this by a diesel-like clatter from the cylinder heads. Failure of the chain drive assemblies is very rare, which is good because they're incredibly expensive (on the V6 engines they're upwards of $700 each). If you're doing this job because it's due based on mileage, don't touch the timing chains in the cylinder heads - only change the timing belt, tensioner roller, relay arm, hydraulic tensioner, idler pulley, water pump, and serpentine belt. You can leave the chains alone.

I am planning to buy 2002 AUDI A6 3.0L QUATTRO, 63K miles. The onwer only changed oil at the recommended time. Does it need anything at 60K. Any problem could be foreseen.

If it has a cam belt then change it.if it runs with a timeing chain leave it till about120k miles.Good car if serviced at recommended times

92 audi 100 quattro wagon, problem staying started?

Could be the fuel pump. If there is pressure in the fuel tank, such as on a hot day it is just enough to get the engine to sputter a few times but not keep running. Might also be the cam position sensor (left rear side of V-6 engine ). A scan reader tool would indicate that.
