I am replacing the distributor in my daughter's car. Once the timing marks are lined up on the distributor shaft it will not line up with the back of the cam. The part of the distributor that bolts the distributor to the head does not line up with the hole on the head when the shaft of distributor lines up with the cam. The bolt flange is so low in fact, it bumps into the sensor housing on the coolant line.
So I figure the timing belt has jump a couple of teeth and the cam is out of sync with the crank. After doing all the work of taking the time covers off, I find that is not the case. The cam and crank are in fact in time with each other.
This is a non adjustable distributor, so there is no installing it and readjusting it later.
I am at a loss on this and I have never come across this problem before.
Thanks for any help you can give me.
have the same problem?
