I had a bad timing gear on my car listed above it is a 3500 LX model and removed timing belt. Will install new belt but need to know how to set the timing as this engine has four camshafts.
Do you
have the same problem?

Put the engine number one piston on its compression stroke/TDC and align the cams to its markings.

Oh, 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:
