    2.  
    3. Slide the right camshaft timing pulley on the camshaft. Align the timing marks on the right camshaft timing pulley and the timing belt cover.
    4.  
    5. Align the knock pin hole of the camshaft with the knock pin groove of the pulley and install the knock pin. Install the bolt and tighten to 81 ft. lbs. (110 Nm).
    6.  

  80.  
  81. Set the timing belt tensioner as follows:
    1. Using a press, slowly press in the pushrod using 220-2,205 lbs. (981-9,807 N) of force.
    2.  
    3. Align the holes of the pushrod and housing, pass a 1.5mm hexagon wrench through the holes to keep the setting position of the pushrod.
    4.  
    5. Release the press and install the dust boot to the tensioner.
    6.  

  82.  
  83. Install the timing belt tensioner and alternately tighten the bolts to 20 ft. lbs. (28 Nm). Using pliers, remove the 1.5mm hexagon wrench from the belt tensioner.
  84.  
  85. Slowly turn the crankshaft pulley two revolutions from the TDC to TDC. Always turn the crankshaft pulley clockwise. Check that each pulley aligns with the timing marks. If the timing marks do not align, remove the timing belt and reinstall it.
  86.  
  87. Install the fan bracket with the bolt and nut.
  88.  
  89. Install the power steering adjusting strut with the nut.
  90.  
  91. Install the timing belt cover, tighten the bolts to 80 inch lbs. (9 Nm).
  92.  
  93. Connect the three clamps for the spark plug wires to the timing belt cover.
  94.  
  95. Connect the camshaft position sensor connector to the timing belt cover.
  96.  
  97. Install the spark plugs.
  98.  
  99. Install the spark plug wires with the ignition coils.
  100.  
  101. If equipped, install the A/C compressor bracket.
  102.  
  103. If equipped, install the A/C compressor.
  104.  
  105. Install the fan with the fluid coupling and fan pulleys, tighten the nuts to 48 inch lbs. (5 Nm).
  106.  
  107. Install the fan shroud.
  108.  
  109. Install the alternator drive belt.
  110.  
  111. Install the cooling fan, and then tighten the nuts to 4 ft. lbs. (5 Nm).
  112.  
  113. If equipped, install and adjust the A/C drive belt.
  114.  
  115. Install the power steering pump, the pump pulley, and the drive belt.
