I see you are having problems timing your engine. do you have any access to reliable repair information? for example identifix or mitchel OnDemand?
Also has there been any other repairs done to the car or is this being replaced due to maintenance recommendation?
Hope to hear from you soon,
You probably cant find it online, you need to pay a monthly subscription fee to have access to the repair info.
It seems like we may have the timing off by 360 degrees. Do you still have the valve covers off? so that we can see the cam lobes?
yes but while the engine is running, the camshafts turn twice, for every crankshaft revolution.
If the valves keep hitting the piston while your turning the engine over you might not be on the correct camshaft position. if you have or need to remove the valve covers to ensure that when the cam shaft is lined with timing marks that #1 cylinder has both cam lobes pointing up and inwards towards each other.
do you need a picture of the correct timing marks?
ok, please let me know if i have been helpful, or if there are anyother questions you need answered about the timing of this engine.
I hope I have been able to help with your problem
