Hi. Thanks for getting back to me. I have a twin cam arrangement so how does one align the markings. Match the I and E's or use the notches on the sprockets or a combination of both?
The markings are like the haynes book arrangement. I have tried the 1.8 DOHC and the engine almost ran. But was very rough. So those markings seem close.
Hope to hear from you,
Well I managed to figure it out. Seems if your using the Haynes manual and use figure 7.41e which is the 1.6l DOHC arrangement the markings will work with the 1.5l variant also. I added an extra tooth position below the markings on both sprockets to block markings. Left the tension spring bolt slightly loose and cranked the engine.
After a little reluctance the engine started and ran.
So TDC on the crankshaft and distributor to #1 sparkplug, then do the cams to block markings and things will work.
Thanks for getting back to me. Tho I don't have a single or chain cam arrangement.
