2.6l V6 K-series. I think my problem was "Safe" inscription on crank pulley(no notch). I alligned it to "Safe" arrow on front cover and noticed that after removing crank pulley that notch on splined crank gear was not aligned with 12:00 arrow on block. Notches on LH cam gears were pointing to eachother "somewhat" (manual said this might be the case) and I turned crank again to be sure that I wasn't 180-deg off. Proceeded with 3-belt change using special tools and followed the manual VERY closely. After re-installing all components, can't turn crank bolt more than 10-deg with wrench before it jams (in either direction). Don't think valves are trashed and have no confidence in timing now. The only thing I can think of is to try to find TDC on #1-cyl and then figure out cams. Please lend experience.
have the same problem?
