Hi I need a pic of the timing kit you have. There are special tools needed. Thanks
There is s crank lock that splines with the lower cog gear. Kinda a half moon do you have that?
yes you will need to remove the cam then all of the valves will be closed . make sure the glow plugs are out so you can turn the crank easier.
look at crank lock pic you will see the arrow and lock the crank down
then on the cam set the cam like this with the gear off
you see on the left the hole where the pin will go in!!
depending if you have clearance there is a too called quik center . it is a drill centering tool to drill the broken piece out then a time sert is needed to install to have threads again . note the cam bolts were a 1 time use only bolts with the rockers bolts for the injectors too!! get new bolts
Yes is the camshaft removed right now?
There is a way. Remove the camshaft so all valves are closed. Remove the glow plugs and then with an adapter to shoot air in the cylinder will tell you if you bent valves.
