hi, paul olean again asking about timing pully alignment for a 1995 plymouth acclaim. i recieved a picture of the alignment, but even after enlarging the picture, i still cant see the dots on the picture to align the pullies. i need a larger and more detailed picture. [email protected] thanks paul

there are no dots--the crank pulley has a dot--the one closest to it had a small cut in the edge that points to the dot--and the cam pulley has an oval shaped hole that aligns with the piece of valve cover gasket that sticks through
