Question about Nissan Frontier
CAUTION Before installing the timing belt, confirm that the No. 1 cylinder is set at the TDC of the compression stroke.
NOTE The rocker arm shaft bolts MUST be loosened so that the correct belt tension can be obtained.
NOTE A good way (although rather tedious!) to check for proper timing belt installation is to count the number of belt teeth between the timing marks. There are 133 teeth on the belt; there should be 40 teeth between the timing marks on the left and right side camshaft sprockets, and 43 teeth between the timing marks on the left side camshaft sprocket and the crankshaft sprocket.
WARNING If any binding is felt when adjusting the timing belt tension by turning the crankshaft, STOP turning the engine, because the pistons may be hitting the valves.
