To install:

  1. Install or connect the following:

    Crankshaft sprocketB
     

  2.  


CAUTION
Pay attention to the direction of the flange. If it is installed in the wrong direction, the belt will break.

  1. Apply engine oil to the outer surface of the spacer lightly and install the spacer to the right counterbalance shaft. Be sure to install spacer correctly.

    Counterbalance shaft sprocket onto the right counterbalance shaft and then tighten the flange bolt by hand until it is tight
     

  2.

  6.  
  7. Lift the tensionerBBB
  8.  
  9. Make sure the timing marks are aligned.
  10.  
  11. Check the belt tension by depressing the center of the belt span with an index finger. The deflection should be 0.20-0.28 inch (5-7mm).
  12.  
  13. Install or connect the following:

    Flange and crankshaft sprocket making sure it is installed properly. Installing the flange incorrectly will cause the belt to break.
     
    Crankshaft washer and bolt. Tighten the bolt to 80-94 ft. lbs. (110-130 Nm).
     

  14.  
  15. Insert a 0.3 inch (8mm) diameter screwdriver through the plug hole on the left side of the block to keep the left counterbalance shaft in position. Insert the screwdriver at least 2.36 inch (60 mm).

    Oil pump sprocket and tighten the nut to 36-43 ft. lbs. (50-60 Nm)
     
    Camshaft sprockets and the bolts
     

  16.  
  17. Hold the camshaft with a wrench and tighten the camshaft sprocket bolts to 56-72 ft. lbs. (80-100 Nm).
  18.  
  19. Reset the auto tensioner as follows:
    1. Place the tensioner in a soft jawed vice in a level position. If there is a plug at the bottom of the tensioner use a plain washer.
    2.  
    3. Compress the rod slowly using the vice until the set hole in the rod is aligned with the set hole on the cylinder.
    4.  
    5. Insert a set pin through the body and rod and leave the pin installed.
    6.  

  20.  
  21. Install or connect the following:

    Tensioner and tighten the bolts to 14-20 ft. lbs. (20-27 Nm). Leave the set pin in place.
     
    Tensioner pulley and tighten the bolt to 31-40 ft. lbs. (43-55 Nm)
     

  22.  
  23. Rotate the camshaft sprockets so that the dowel pin is at the upper side. Set the timing mark of the sprocket correctly.
  24.  


NOTE
Before installing the belt, the timing mark of the camshaft sprocket doers not coincide with that of the rocker cover, do not rotate the cam sprocket more than 2 teeth of the sprocket in any direction. Rotating the sprocket more that 2 teeth may make the valve and piston contact each other. If it is necessary to rotate the sprocket more that 2 teeth, rotate the crankshaft sprocket counterclockwise first based on the timing mark. After the camshaft sprocket is properly timed, return the crankshaft to TDC.

  1. Align the crankshaft sprocket timing marks.
  2.  
  3. Align the pump sprocket timing marks.
  4.  
  5. Install the timing belt counterclockwise around the tensioner pulley and crankshaft sprocket. Hold the belt onto the tensioner pulley using your hand.
  6.  
  7. Pull the belt around the oil pump sprocket using your other hand.
  8.  
  9. Install the belt around the right-hand idler pulley, then the intake camshaft sprocket.
  10.  
  11. Turn the exhaust camshaft sprocket one tooth clockwise to align its timing mark with the cylinder top surface, then pull the belt around the exhaust camshaft sprocket.
  12.  
  13. Raise the tensioner pulley gently so that the belt does not sag and temporarily tighten the pulley center bolt.
  14.  
  15. Recheck that all timing marks are correct.
  16.  
  17. Remove the set pin from the auto tensioner.
  18.  
  19. Rotate the crankshaft two turns clockwise and let it sit for around 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, measure the auto tensioner protrusionA
  20.  
  21. Install the timing covers. Tighten the bolts as shown in the accompanying illustration to specification as shown in the accompanying illustration.
