Fiat stilo ABARTH;
FITTNG RECON HEAD afer timing belt failure, the static positions of inlet camshaft variator appears to be different between old and recon i.E. When pulley is mounted on old and new they are many degrees of a difference. I did not mark before removing.( Is old variator damaged due to belt failure?) I know rest of belt alignment and have camshaft locking tools ( laser product)
Your advice would be of great help. Regards ian

We dont' have an info on that particular car. Maybe the head you have is of older design so it's not really what is needed. DI wold doubt your variator is damaged to belt failure but strangerthings have happened. I'd bet if you put the engine on TDC then there will be marks of sometype to timie the cams.
