Customer Question

I have a 4 cyc 1.8 litter volkswagon engine in a spray coupe. The timing belt had to be replaced and I am having trouble getting it in time.

Hello, Jason here to help. I am familiar with the engine in question but not the vehicle.
The flywheel XXXXX XXXXXned up with the pointer in the bellhousing if a manual, or the O centered on the flat area if a automatic. The distributor points to number one area, but there is a actual mark in the distributor cap mounting lip.
The camshaft pulley may have several marks, the marks on the inside edge are the timing marks. A dot will line up with the valve cover edge on the front of the head. If you can see the cam with the oil cap removed, the two lobes for number one will be in the up position.
Let me know if this helps, or if more is needed. Jason
