Default Quick Question about Timing Marks

Hi I'm just putting my timing belt back together and was wondering about the marks, are they suppose align after you crank the engine twice? Also what are the odds of the valves being bent?

Any help is appreciated.

Default Re: Quick Question about Timing Marks

since you mentioned timing belt, is it easy to do it yourself so far ?! or not. (considering the tightness and lack of space to work on it !)

does it really cost 1200$ to have someone do it for you in a shop ?
answering your questions (you didnt mention your car year or type !) anyway for my 2006 pt cruiser this is how it is supposed to be
"7.Rotate the crankshaft CLOCKWISE two complete revolutions manually for seating of the belt, until the crankshaft is repositioned at the TDC position. Verify that the camshaft (1) and crankshaft (2) timing marks are in proper position" copied from see attachments for pic

"When aligning crankshaft and camshaft timing marks always rotate engine from crankshaft. Camshaft should not be rotated after timing belt is removed. Damage to valve components may occur. Always align timing marks before removing timing belt." same source !
