1.Align the timing marks of the camshaft sprockets (on the front and rear sides) and the crankshaft sprocket (At the top dead center position of the No.1 cylinder compression stroke.)
2.Route the timing belt on the crankshaft sprocket, then onto the rear camshaft sprocket.
3.Run the timing belt onto the water pump pulley, the front
camshaft sprocket and the timing belt tensioner.
4.Apply force counterclockwise to the rear camshaft sprocket with tension on the tight side of the belt, check that the timing marks are all aligned.
5.Install the flange.
6.Back off the fixing bolts of the temporarily tightened tensioner one or two turns and tighten the timing belt with the tensioner spring force specified.
7.Using the special tool (09231-33100), turn the crankshaft two turns in the normal rotating direction (clockwise).
Turn smoothly, only in a clockwise direction.
8. Readjust the sprocket timing marks and re-tighten the tensioner locking bolts.
9. Measure the belt tension with a belt tension gauge as shown in
Tension force . . . . . . . . . . . . . 260-380 N (57-84 Ibs.)
Position the hooks in the tooth bottoms and apply the spindle to the back of the belt.
10. As the mounting bolts of the timing cover are different in size according to location, be sure to locate them .
