Customer Question

Customer: 2006 kia sportage 2.7v6 . removed a bad crankshaft pully and timing gear came with it and put it back together and must have been a half a tooth or a full tooth off. bunped key and it stopped so I stoped. took it all back apart to check alignments and now I cant move the crankshaft to get proper alignment. moves with a wrech on it about 2 inches on the wrench both ways but will not rotate clockwise or counter clockwise it just stops like its hitting something both ways. no clunking or noises it just stops.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: cam gears rotate clockwise with no issues and counter clockwise. have the valve covers off don't see any issues. they rotate like they should cams all look good and operate like they should
