  1. Before the removal of the timing belt, rotate crankshaft until TDC mark on oil pump housing aligns with TDC mark on crankshaft sprocket (trailing edge of sprocket tooth) (Fig. 84). NOTE: The crankshaft sprocket mark is located on the trailing edge of the sprocket tooth. Failure to align trailing edge of sprocket tooth to mark on oil pump housing will cause the camshaft marks to be misaligned (Fig. 84).



Fig. 85

INSTALLATION

  1. Set crankshaft sprocket to TDC by aligning the sprocket with the arrow on the oil pump housing.



Fig. 86

  1. Set camshafts timing marks so that the exhaust camshaft sprocket is a 1/2 notch below the intake camshaft sprocket (Fig. 86). CAUTION: Ensure that the arrows on both camshaft sprockets are facing up.



Fig. 87

  1. Install timing belt. Starting at the crankshaft, go around the water pump sprocket, idler pulley, camshaft sprockets and then around the tensioner (Fig. 87).
  2. Move the exhaust camshaft sprocket counterclockwise (Fig. 87) to align marks and take up belt slack. NOTE: A new tensioner is held in the wound position by a pull pin.
  3. Remove the pull pin or Allen wrench from the belt tensioner.

Chrysler Mechanic: Ricardo Hohl, Master Certified Tech replied 7 years ago
ok, there is a tool for this is call camshaft gear aligment tool is a tool that goes betweeng the gear and you need to install it before you remove the belt this tool is found in a regular auto parts is not expensive and makes the job much easier, if you have a napa store or carquest, or sears this stores will rent the tool to you for a couple of dollars , but if you dont then you can use small bice greep plyer, it is a little dificult to get this pulleys align with out the tool that is whay i will recomend to get it.
