    Crank to Cam timing is very critical. It's is far less to spend $26.95 to get the factory info than it is to replace the cylinder head. Go to www.alldatadiy.com. It is also critical that you replace the idler and tensioner pulleys. Replace the tensioner also. If you need more help contact me at jmgrhm30@gmail.com.

    Why waste your money on a junk chilton book, when you can get factory info for $26.95. Greg this time you are wrong.

    This job requires speciality tools and a lot of engine savvy, suggest getting a mechanic to do the repair.
    Even with instructions and propper tools it is still a tricky job!! Now, you may very well be a mechanic, no profile given.
