Install camshaft pulleys onto camshaft aligning "I" mark with intake camshaft dowel pin and "E" mark with exhaust camshaft dowel pin
Install tensioner pulley. Pull tensioner pulley to its furthest point, and tighten lock bolt. Check that timing mark on crankshaft sprocket is aligned with timing mark on engine. See Fig. 2 and Fig. 3 . Ensure that camshaft sprockets are aligned with marks on cylinder head cover. See Fig. 4 .
Install timing belt onto crankshaft sprocket first, then idler pulley, exhaust camshaft sprocket, intake camshaft sprocket, and finally, tensioner pulley. See Fig. 6 . Ensure there is no looseness in belt between idler pulley and exhaust camshaft sprocket, or between intake and exhaust camshaft sprockets.
Loosen tensioner pulley lock bolt, and allow tensioner spring to apply tension to timing belt. DO NOT add additional tension. Tighten tensioner pulley lock bolt to specification. See TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS .
Rotate crankshaft two full turns (clockwise only), and align timing mark on crankshaft sprocket with timing mark on engine block. See Fig. 6 . Ensure that marks on camshaft sprockets align with marks on cylinder head cover. See Fig. 2 , Fig. 3 and Fig. 4 . If marks do not align, remove timing belt and repeat process from tensioner installation.
Measure timing belt deflection by applying moderate pressure midway between camshaft sprockets. If deflection is not 0.39-0.50" (11-13 mm) with 22 lbs. (10 kg) of force applied, repeat installation process from tensioner installation.
Install lower and upper timing belt covers, timing belt guide plate and crankshaft pulley. Install water pump pulley. Tighten all bolts to specification. See TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS .
Install generator belt and adjust tension. Install power steering and air conditioning drive belt, and adjust tension. Connect negative battery cable.
