Hi im kevin on this engine there is no locking pin for crank shaft you are supposed to put a dial guage in cylinder 1 plug hole and line engine up with cylinder 1 at tdc

  • requires:
    • Timing chain cover removal.
    • Sump removal.

Note: Mark direction of rotation on chains.

  • Install dial gauge and holder in No.1 cylinder plug hole. Ensure engine at TDC on No.1 cylinder 1.
  • Ensure timing marks on camshafts aligned as shown. If not, turn crankshaft 360 °2.
  • Fit camshaft alignment tool 3.

Note: If camshaft alignment tool cannot be inserted valve timing is incorrect.

  • Compress timing chain tensioner and lock with locking pin 4.
  • Remove camshaft sprockets and chain.
  • Align camshafts. Use special tool 3.
  • Install camshaft sprockets and timing chain.
  • Engines with variable valve timing:
    • Fit new bolt. Tighten inlet camshaft adjuster bolt 5. Tightening torque: 40 Nm + 90 °.

Note: Inlet camshaft sprocket bolt has LH thread

  • Engines without variable valve timing:
    • Tighten inlet camshaft sprocket bolt 6. Tightening torque: 50 Nm + 90 °.
  • Tighten exhaust camshaft sprocket bolt. Tightening torque: 50 Nm + 90 °.
  • Tighten crankshaft pulley bolt. Tightening torque:
    • A = 150 Nm + 180 °
    • B = 90 Nm + 90 °

Note: Crankshaft pulley bolt and bolt on each camshaft sprocket MUST only be used once.
