Question about Plymouth Breeze
In addition the cam timing may be off due to following reasons:
· Broken camshaft –to–cam sprocket drive pin (on both sprockets the timing marks will match, but the cam will be “late” relative to sprocket)
· The rubber in the crank pulley will deteriorate and the outer section containing the timing mark will drift counterclockwise as a result of alternator belt tension (this will lead to the wrong conclusion that the cam is advanced), therefore is good idea to match mark the pulley hub to its outer section (where the timing mark is).
· Damaged crankshaft-to-crankshaft sprocket woodruff key — the cam timing will be retarded and timing marks will not mach. This needs to be checked if belt is tight.

Tips for a great answer:
First pull the timing belt tensioner then slip the belt off the cam gears. You then need to find TDC (Top dead center). 3 ways to find TDC 1) There are marks on the crank pulley align them for TDC. 2) Remove timing cover and use crank gear mark seen in link below 3) Put the dip stick in cylinder 1 and turn engine until dip stick stops going up. After finding TDC align cam gear marks seen in link below. Now make sure both cam and crank stay in position and slip timing belt back on (you can move the cam gear to get the belt on but make sure the marks are aligned after the belt is on). Last tighten the belt tensioner, I usually use my finger or an extension to get some more tension on the belt. You might have to remove engine mount bracket makes life much easier as the front cover section is TIGHT !!!. Turn engine a few times to make sure you have compression and engine turns without getting stuck. See link below good luck.
