Sorry, I guess my question is: What would cause my 93/94 audi quattro 100 cs to turn over but not start, after the belt broke and was replaced. Also the car wash pushed in neutral to get it off the road. It has fuel and battery is charged. the car was running fine before the belt snapped.
If it is a 6-cylinder, you need a special tool for alignment of the cams.
how do you get enough tension off the belt to move the sprockets
you have to compress the damper. Which is impossible to do because it is a cylinder filled with oil and has a hole for the oil to bleed through. You must compress it slowly, so slow that it would take a very long time and you will probably give up on that. It better to replace it as it comes compressed wit a pin in it. You will tension the belt and pull the pin.
I will list the procedure to perform a timing belt job and you can read through it up to that point where it explains how to tension the belt. If you remove the tension to adjust the belt you have to properly re apply tension or the belt will slip off time.
Here is the link for the Timing belt repair
How is it going?
The link is the exact same procedure for your car except for the cam alignment tool.
You will need the one specific for your engine since you have the 2v valve and not the 5 valve.
