Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Do you have it apart? if you are replacing the timing belt, I would replace the water pump, cam seals , crank seal, tensioner, thermostat and bypass hose behind the front cover. you do not want to do this twice, do it all at once, Thanks ROY!
Everything is apart, replacing water pump, thermostat, all belts, etc. Just need to know how to set the marks to replace the timing belt because I don't think he set the engine to top before he removed it. Be happy to call you (I have unlimited long distance) or you can call him at XXX-XXX-XXXX if it would be easier to tell than to write answer. Thank you tremendously! I've been without vehicle two weeks now.
here are the alignment marks. let me know if you have more questions, ROY!
I hope this helps you and good luck! Thanks, ROY
The marks on the belt are the most important marks and the pulleys , the case and rear marks are just your reference points.
I would get a new factory belt, so you have the correct marks to install it correctly if not you could damage the engine . the bottom pulley dot should be around 5, 0 clock posistion, the belt mark is all you need to align dont worry about the case marks , the belt and pulley mark are the most important spot to align , Thanks ROY!
I would not use that belt , get a Nissan factory belt the factory belt has an arrow for the font of the belt ,and a dotted line for the right cam shaft, then two more lines for the left cam and crank sprocket ,this is what I would use to make sure you install it correctly, or you can bend the valves in the engine . Thanks ROY!
It will be worth the drive to not damage the engine , Thanks ROY!
