I am now a member of the "I forgot to put my oil cap back on after topping it off" club. 15 miles with the cap on the top of the valve cover.

Or fail...

Edit: what you have there looks wrong. Line up the crank with its mark first, then do the cams.
The effin crank kept moving. Next time I'll get some vice grips It looks right now

Set crank then put car in gear. Could be the angle of the pic but your cams both look one tooth off.

I think the angle of the camera is slightly off and it makes the marks look off. It is always hard looking at a picture and figuring it out.

Looks right to me. It is 19 teeth best I can recall, and the marks look like they should be right, even though the picture isn't a straight on shot.

This has got to be one of the easiest timing belts I have ever done. If you want a challenge, try one on a transverse mounted motor.

Hey, Am in a deep mess right now,I came down here to London,England for a short vacation unfortunately I was mugged at the park of the hotel where I lodged,all cash,credit card and cell were stolen off me but luckily for me i still have my life and passports with me.


I've been to the embassy and the Police here but they're not helping issues at all and my return flight leaves in the next few hours from now but I'm having problems settling the hotel bills and the hotel manager won't let me leave until I settle the bills. The hotel manager have been so kind by taking me to a local library to shoot an email to you as i have explained to him that the bills is going to be taken care of by you.


Am freaked out at the moment.
Cathy
