Okay, I'm now ready to replace my timing belt. To make sure I don't screw up, does the crankshaft pulley BOLT turn left to loosen? And what size impact SOCKET do I need to loosen it?

Thanks !

Hi hiltonn,

The crankshaft center bolt is normal threaded ie, to loosen, turn anticlockwise.

The size should be 19 mm hex bolt.

I see no adjustment for the timing belt tentioner. Is it done automatic? I don't have the hydraulic tentioner type.
With the tentioner bolts loose, I turned the crankshaft to the right about a half turn and then tightned down both tentioner bolts.

2005 Hyundai Accent 1.6 engine.
Thanks one more time!

You should never turn the crankshaft with the tensioner bolts loosened. The timing belt can skip tooth when the camshaft is suddenly sprung forward by the valve springs if the crankshaft is turned too much.

Tightened the adjuster bolts, turn the crankshaft till you feel resistance of the compression and then release the tensioner bolts. Retighten the bolts after the tensioner spring pushes against the timing to self adjust. That is the adjustment you require.

I already put it all back together before I received your last helpful email. The last thing I done before putting the upper and lower covers back on was double checked for the timing marks and the crankshaft at TDC. I rotated the engine before putting all pulleys and belts back on. It cranked beautiful! So am I safe? I'll wait and hear from you before I crank it again! Thanks.

Before cranking the engine, you must manually turn the crankshaft at least 2 revolutions and recheck the belt timing. If they all line up, you are safe.

Since you have rotated the crankshaft and rechecked the timing marks, it should be good.

Have a nice day.
