Question about Toyota Celica
There are three marks he needs to look at or remember if he did it right the second time. On the cam there is a small hole you line up with a hole in the cam bearing cap. On the crankshaft there are 2 marks and they align up like the hands of a clock at 2 O'clock, one straight up the other at the 2 oclock position. He needs to remember if that is how he set it up. The only other problem with setting the timing belt will be it can get loose or skip. Here is what he needs to do, = Make sure the belt is tight on the non tensioner side of the run (over the water pump). Loosen the tensioner 1/2 turn to allow the tensioner to slide in/out. Turn the crankshaft (2) two turns clockwise until the Number 1 cyl in on the compression stroke.Re check his timing mark alignment to be sure all lines up as it should. If one or the other is off reset and return the engine until they align after hand turning the engine. Next thing to look for is a silver or green spring on the Tensioner, If silver torque the tensioner down to 31flbs. If it has the green spring, turn the crankshaft slowly another 1 7/8 turn until the crank pulley aligns with the 45 degree (o) mark on the lower timing cover, then torque the tensioner bolt down to 31flbs. Hope this helps. Ask him if he remembers if this is how he did it if not he needs to go back in, sorry..
