I have done all that already, I had already installed timing belt and tension and rotated crank to tdc and aligned the cam sprocket. But every diagram I have looked at shows a timing tab and mark on the crank pulley. There is no timing tab to be found on this motor. That is why I requested a picture of a engine with the crank timing mark on tdc so I could tell if I did it properly. The drawing diagrams do not match up to the actual crank. And the only step by step pics Ive seen are on forums that are for replacing a timing belt that was still intact. This motor shreded the timing belt and the crank was still spinning for awhile after the cam stopped.
let me see if i have something else
I wasnt trying to sound like a jerk on my question, I just meant I have already heard from my local import repair shop that I probably had a bent valve and just needed to remove the head. Thats alot of time and money, even if I do it myself. I was just trying to see if I had done everything correctly so far, but the lower timing mark was bugging me. I have replaced my eclipse timing belt, and it had alignment arrows on every pulley.
the odds are
the valves are bent
check the compression on the cylinders
even if the motor will turn over ?
i would think that sense the belt is shedded
it came to a hard stop
meaning the valves hit the pistons
didnt think about checking the compression , hadnt got that far, was too disgusted
a compression test will tell you the story here
it must have over 100psi on all cylinders
if you have a bad valve,,it will have no or really low compression
Ok , will check that. if its lower than 100 , you reccomend r and r the head?
you are very lucky if the valves arent bent or damaged
well that sucks, but thanks for your advice, i will accept your answer so you can get paid, just got to figure out how much this is going to cost me now even doing it myself. and probably a dozen hours or so of work.
