No it just means the number one cylinder is at the top. The cams need to be in time also as the piston is up top for compression and for exhaust.
Here is a picture to show where the number one cylinder is.
I will also attach instructions on how to replace the belt. If you still need help just reply, if not click ACCEPT when we are done.
maybe i should have asked differently, when the timing mark on the crankshaft is lined up to the mark on the block is the number one piston in its correct position ,or do i have to remove the intake manifold and look?
You are welcome.
Glad I could help.
