  • Release tension on toothed belt again.
  • Now tension toothed belt until notch and tab align.
  • Tighten tensioning roller nut.
  • Turn crankshaft 2 revolutions further in direction of engine rotation until engine is positioned at TDC again. For this it is necessary that the last 45°(1/8 rotation) is turned without interruption.
