After installing the new belt and getting everything tight, the instruction says to turn the engine two revolutions back to TDC and compare the crank marks to the cam gear TDC marks. My rear bank cam was about 2 teeth off, so I had to remove the belt and try again.
Thanks for the great write up! I have a question about 1 cam being off while the other cam and crankshaft are TDC.
We got a new timing belt on, did 2 turns and the front Cam was 1 tooth off. BUT it gets worse... We took the belt off to adjust the front Cam, I assumed I could just put a socket on that Cam and give a little turn which I did but it ended up 'jumping' quite a bit and went about 1/4 of a turn clockwise! So now, the Rear Cam and Crankshaft are TDC and the front Cam is off by about 1/4 of a turn.
I'm guessing this isn't a freewheeling engine, so doesn't this mean I'll have to remove the valve cover/valve train rocker and remove the bolts on the Cam to turn in back 1/4 of a turn back to TDC??
Basically I'm looking for info on how to get that front Cam back in sync with the other Cam and Crankshaft.
Here's an example, the Red line shows where my front Cam's TDC mark is sitting now.
