So taking of the inlet mani, cam covers, connectors ect all went well then I got round to locking the cam pulleys and crank pulley. Now last year I had someone else do a cambelt and pump change on it and at the time he said the crank pulley had slipped, and I thought it might of happened as the car had done about 50k on that belt. I got a new pulley and he fitted the belt with no issues.
So when I came to lock the pulley today the cams lined up nice but the crank pulley was out. The locking hole was at about 5 'o' clock instead of being about 10 'o' clockish. My question is "has the crank pulley slipped again or is it out of time?" Also where should the Pistons sit when the crank pulley is locked in the correct position?
I found the only real pain in the arse with this job was actually lifting the head of because I left the exhaust mani on. I then realised it wasn't coming out with it on so had to remove it which meant me getting on the back of the head with a Dremal to cut 3 of the 8 bolts off It then came of fine. I now have to get the head checked over and possibly skimmed.
Any advice or info from anyone in the know would be much appreciated.
