2004 nissan xterra 3.3liter, I need to put my timing belt back on. My screw up was marking the belt with the marks on the sprockets and crank but not orienting at TDC before doing so. When I went to put the belt back on the marks don't line up, looks like I am off by several teeth, cams must have moved some while I put the new water pump on. Am I ok to rotate both cams clockwise to the alignment mark keeping them both in sync and then rotate the crank to TDC and put the belt on. I know I shouldn't have attempted this as I don't know what I'm doing. Thanks for any help. Mike
have the same problem?
