  1. Before the removal of the timing belt, rotate crankshaft until TDC mark on oil pump housing aligns with TDC mark on crankshaft sprocket (trailing edge of sprocket tooth) (Fig. 84). NOTE: The crankshaft sprocket mark is located on the trailing edge of the sprocket tooth. Failure to align trailing edge of sprocket tooth to mark on oil pump housing will cause the camshaft marks to be misaligned (Fig. 84).



Fig. 85

  1. Install 6 mm Allen wrench into belt tensioner. Before rotating the tensioner insert the long end of a 1/8" or 3 mm Allen wrench into the pin hole on the front of the tensioner (Fig. 85). While rotating the tensioner counterclockwise push in lightly on the 1/8" or 3 mm Allen wrench, until it slides into the locking hole.
  2. Remove timing belt. CAUTION: If timing belt was damaged due to incorrect tracking (alignment), the belt tensioner assembly must be replace. Refer to Timing Belt Tensioner Assembly Removal and Installation procedure.

INSTALLATION

  1. Set crankshaft sprocket to TDC by aligning the sprocket with the arrow on the oil pump housing.



Fig. 86

  1. Set camshafts timing marks so that the exhaust camshaft sprocket is a 1/2 notch below the intake camshaft sprocket (Fig. 86). CAUTION: Ensure that the arrows on both camshaft sprockets are facing up.



Fig. 87

  1. Install timing belt. Starting at the crankshaft, go around the water pump sprocket, idler pulley, camshaft sprockets and then around the tensioner (Fig. 87).
  2. Move the exhaust camshaft sprocket counterclockwise (Fig. 87) to align marks and take up belt slack. NOTE: A new tensioner is held in the wound position by a pull pin.
  3. Remove the pull pin or Allen wrench from the belt tensioner.



Fig. 88

  1. Once timing belt has been installed and tensioner released, rotate crankshaft two (2) complete revolutions. Verify that the TDC marks on crankshaft and timing marks on the camshafts are aligned as shown in (Fig. 88).
  2. Install right engine mount and support bracket.
  3. Install upper timing belt cover bolts 4.5 Nm (40 in. lbs.) .
  4. Install the lower timing belt cover bolts 4.5 Nm (40 in. lbs.) .
  5. Install generator belt idler pulley and tighten bolt 54 Nm (40 ft. lbs.) .
