    No it doesn't need to be timed or put in synchronization. Key has to be engaged in gear of oil pump. but it is pretty straight forward. Oil pump is on front cover, remove crank pulley to get access to pump. Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website http://bit.ly/autozone_repair_info. There is also a company that independent auto repair shops buy their information from that the same information inexpensively to do it yourselfers. The information is year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online
