LOCKING ENGINE 90 DEGREES AFTER TDC 1. Disconnect negative battery cable. 2. Remove the vibration damper. See: Harmonic Balancer - Crankshaft Pulley NOTE: Rotate the engine by the front crankshaft bolt until the witness mark next to the bolt in the front crankshaft hub reaches the 12 o'clock position, or TDC. Rotate the engine another 1/4 turn to the right, rotating the witness mark to the three o'clock position, or 90 degrees ATDC.

3. Rotate engine by hand until the witness mark (2) in the front crankshaft hub (1) reaches the 3 O'clock position.
4. Raise and support the vehicle.
5. Remove the splash shield.

CAUTION: A properly installed alignment pin will have no threads showing once threaded into the access hole. The engine block, flywheel, and/or flex plate, have an alignment hole to assist in properly aligning the crankshaft before service. Failure to properly align the crankshaft, or forcing the VM.1089 alignment pin, may result in improper valve timing and engine damage. DO NOT rotate the engine counterclockwise.

NOTE: It may be necessary to rotate the engine to 90 degrees ATDC several times before proper alignment occurs. This alignment is precise and exact to prevent engine damage while servicing the timing components.

6. Insert the VM.1089 (2) alignment pin into the 90 degree ATDC alignment access hole. Tighten pin by hand until no threads on the tool are visible.
