To be sure you need to look at the timing belt crank pulley (behind the damper pulley) and make sure the arrow on it is aligned. Checking the damper timing marks will give you a false...

Bah, revisionist history. That's like putting an LS into a 60s Chevelle -- an XT or AT is supposed to have an MFM drive. (PCs didn't have hard drives at all)
