Put the engine no.1 piston on its compression stroke/TDC and align the cams to its markings

Jeffj, did you get the timing belt changed successfully on this? Do you need other pictures or directions?

Oooh, expensive. Next time you have a repair, try using a Haynes manual, or buy a one month subscription to the same service we use here:
