My car has the 2.2 liter 5 sfe engine. I am re-assembling the head after replacing the head gasket and I am having trouble with setting up the cams. I can set up the inlet cam timing with top dead center, but when I look to the marks on the rear of the cam sprockets, I have one mark on the inlet cam (no problem there), but have three marks on the rear of the exhaust cam sprocket. Which one of the three do I align with the inlet cam mark?
Checked tags and is definitely the 5s-fe engine. It has one gear bolted to inlet cam driven by the timing belt. Inlet cam has a second gear on it that meshes with a gear on the exhaust cam. Will find a picture to show what I mean
p.S. I did originally mark the cams myself on the out side of sprocket, but these marks came of in the parts washer DOH!
have the same problem?
