Default Re: Correct Timing Belt timing ? With pictures

Swederacer in the first 2 pics, which I assume were when the engine was running rough, both exhaust and intake cams are 1 tooth off on the timing. Meaning the crank and piston 1 would have been at TDC and the exhaust and intake valve would still have been slightly open, hence losing plenty of power in the process.

The next 2 pics show the correct setting, crank at TDC and cams level with timing marks pointing towards each other. The manual is correct, as I have mentioned before, the manual shows the rear or exhaust sprocket as being a 1/2 tooth off only when placing the belt on the sprockets. Once you get the belt in place and the tensioner released you will realize that all the marks will line up perfectly. The 1/2 tooth is for belt slack and not a setting requirement.

Good pic's this one never gets old
