Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Im attempting to replace the timing belt and have already taken the parts off the engine. How do I find the timing marks and how are they supposed to be lined up before i put the new timing belt on?

My best suggestion would be to get a service manual from your local parts store. I mean you are willing to replace the timing belt yourself but not willing to get a manual?
Im actually trying to help a friend with this chore. He purchased a manual and he tells me that it doesnt give the locations of the timing marks and how to line them up to properly set the timing.
ensure arrow on camshaft is aligned to timing mark on cylinder head. timing mark on crank sproket is aligned towith notchin cover (about 1 0clock position.
