I bought a 1999 geo prism with 1.6 head in trunk . I have head checked etc.. I got timing marks figured out now I think. My question is... What do I do about the " service bolt " that isn't in the gear when they took cams out? What/ how is the proper way to reset the gear with the service bolt since it was not installed into gear
during disassembly?
