Engine Mechanical problem
Timing Belt Replacement issue.
2002 Honda Civic 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 118000 miles
My camshaft pulley moved during belt installation. Now I'm trying to align the crankshaft pulley marks with the camshaft pulley notches.
The Crankshaft pulley has 4 notches: 3 that are close together with a red mark in between the two. Then to the right of the 3 notches about a 1/4 inch away is one notch by itself. Which notch should I line up with the belt cover V notch to get the engine to TDC before removing the crankshaft pulley for a belt replacement? Isn't the red mark BTDC? Shouldn't I align with notch on the right for TDC?
Also, what do I line up the Camshaft pulley sprocket arm labeled 'UP'? There a two notches 180 degrees apart. 90 degrees left and 90 degrees right from the UP label. Should these notches be parallel with the ground?
Thanks in advance.
