Installation

  1. CAUTION: Damage to the camshaft phaser and sprocket assembly will occur if mishandled or used as a lifting or leveraging device.

If installing a new camshaft phaser and sprocket, transfer the original scribe mark to the new camshaft phaser and sprocket.

  1. CAUTION: The timing chain must be installed in its original position onto the camshaft phaser and sprocket using the scribed marks, or damage to valves and pistons will result.

CAUTION: Damage to the camshaft phaser and sprocket assembly will occur if mishandled or used as a lifting or leveraging device.



Align the scribe marks and position the camshaft phaser and sprocket into the timing chain.

  1. If servicing the RH camshaft phaser and sprocket, install the RH camshaft. See: Camshaft\Service and Repair
  2. If servicing the LH camshaft phaser and sprocket, install the LH camshaft. See: Camshaft\Service and Repair

There is a mark on the chain .but no marks on the cam sprocket.In my chilton manuel it says to line up the L on the left sprocket with the two colored links on the chain .and to line up the i on the right .only problem theres no i just a big L and an R stright across from each other. On top of each letter theres an arrow pointing to a sprocket tooth
here is the procedure this will help the cam gears need to be alignewith the leters up on the centerline of the head and individualy with every 180 rebolutions of the engine see instructions.
  1. As a post-check, verify correct alignment of all timing marks.

  1. Install the crankshaft sensor ring on the crankshaft.

  1. NOTE: The camshaft phaser and sprocket will be stamped with one of the illustrated timing marks for the RH camshaft.

NOTE: The lower half of the timing chain must be positioned above the tensioner arm dowel.

Position the RH timing chain on the camshaft sprocket. Make sure the camshaft sprocket timing mark is positioned between the 2 copper (marked) chain links.

  1. Position the lower end of the RH (outer) timing chain on the crankshaft sprocket, aligning the timing mark on the sprocket with the single copper (marked) chain link.
