Question about Hyundai Motor 1999 Elantra
I have removed the timing belt before i found out there is no sprocket timing mark on the cam. what should i do now? does anyone know how to find out the sprocket timing mark on the cam pulley for Hyundai Lantra 1999? help please.
Did you turn the engine sins you removed the belt?
If not and can't find any mark ( you should) and did not turn the engine did not touch any sprocket then you can put back the new belt with no problem. It would be better if you find the mark, clean it until you find it.

Timing the Cam to the Crank
There are several ways to time the cam to the crank. Be sure to check the manual before you install the timing chain or belt.
If the old parts are available, carefully compare the new gears or sprockets with the old ones. Check the keyway and timing marks just in case there might have been an error made in manufacturing. Sprockets are sometimes stamped backward. Its much better to find the problem during assembly, rather than waiting until problems show up after reassembly and reinstallation.
Maintaining Valve Timing
During a valve job, it is essential to keep the timing chain or belt in place to maintain correct valve timing. Position the number one cylinder at TDC. Some overhead cam engines use a single long chain for a cam drive. The chain can be wedged against its guides with a tapered block of wood.
the chain tensioner on some ohc engines must be wedged to keep the chain in position during cylinder head removal. courtesy of nissan motors.
Some engines have a lower and upper chain. These engines do not require special attention to wedging the chain. Be sure to look for hidden head bolts and check the repair manual before removing the OHC head.
