  8. Remove and discard right side front exhaust camshaft cap seal from cylinder head.
  9. Position LRT-12-175 to rear camshaft gears as illustrated, remove and discard bolts securing gears to camshafts.
  10. Remove rear camshaft gears, timing belt and special tool as an assembly.
    CAUTION
    Do not turn the crankshaft or the camshafts while the timing belt is removed.

  11. If camshaft timing belt is to be refitted, mark direction of rotation on timing belt.
  12. Remove LRT-12-175 from camshaft gears and remove timing belt from gears.
    CAUTION
    Camshaft timing belts must be stored and handled with care. Always store belt on its edge and with a bend radius of more than 2 inches (20mm). Do not reuse a belt that has been twisted or bent double. Do not use a belt if debris other than belt dust is found in timing belt covers, or if belt has been contaminated with coolant or oil. Do not reuse belt if partial engine seizure has occurred. Do not reused a belt if mileage is more than 45,000 miles (72,000 km).


To install:


NOTE
After the front or rear timing belt installation is complete, it is possible that, after rotating the engine and positioning the crankshaft pulley to the -SAFE- position, the timing marks on the rear timing gears may be misaligned. This misalignment is acceptable, provided that the timing belt installation procedure is carried out correctly.


CAUTION
If the sintered metal gears have been subjected to prolonged oil contamination, they must be soaked in a solvent bath and then thoroughly washer in clean solvent before refitting.

To install:


NOTE
After the front or rear timing belt installation is complete, it is possible that, after rotating the engine and positioning the crankshaft pulley to the -SAFE- position, the timing marks on the rear timing gears may be misaligned. This misalignment is acceptable, provided that the timing belt installation procedure is carried out correctly.
