NOTE: Cylinder No. 1 is at top dead center (TDC) when the keyway is in the 12 o'clock position.
CAUTION: If the camshaft timing belt is to be reused, mark the direction of the camshaft timing belt to the rotation of the camshaft prior to removal, or premature wear or failure may occur.
CAUTION: The camshaft must be held stationary at the hexagons with locking pliers. Do not use the alignment tool to hold the camshaft in position or damage to the camshaft may occur.
NOTE: To loosen the camshaft pulleys, hold the camshafts by the hexagon.
NOTE: Rotate the camshafts clockwise as necessary.
CAUTION: Do not rotate the crankshaft; as necessary check that it is still resting against the timing pin.
