    To install:

    1. Use a wrench to hold the camshaft and install the sprocket and mounting bolt. Tighten the bolt(s) to 65 ft. lbs. (88 Nm).
    2.  
    3. Install the cylinder head cover.
    4.  
    5. Place the crankshaft sprocket on the crankshaft. Use tool MB990767 or equivalent to hold the crankshaft sprocket while tightening the center bolt. Tighten the center bolt to 80-94 ft. lbs. (108-127 Nm).
    6.  
    7. Align the timing marks on the crankshaft sprocket B and the balance shaft.
    8.  
    9. Install timing belt B on the sprockets. Position the center of the tensioner pulley to the left and above the center of the mounting bolt.
    10.  
    11. Push the pulley clockwise toward the crankshaft to apply tension to the belt and tighten the mounting bolt to 14 ft. lbs. (19 Nm). Do not let the pulley turn when tightening the bolt because it will cause excessive tension on the belt. The belt should deflect 0.20-0.28 in. (5-7 mm) when finger pressure is applied between the pulleys.
    12.  
    13. Install the crankshaft sensing blade and the crankshaft sprocket. Apply engine oil to the mounting bolt and Tighten the bolt to 80-94 ft. lbs. (108-127 Nm).
    14.  
    15. Use a press or vise to compress the auto tensioner pushrod. Insert a set pin when the holed are lined up.
      WARNING
      Do not compress the pushrod too quickly, damage to the pushrod can occur.

    16.  
    17. Install the auto tensioner on the engine.
    18.  
    19. Align the timing marks on the camshaft sprocket, crankshaft sprocket and the oil pump sprocket.
    20.  
    21. After aligning the mark on the oil pump sprocket, remove the cylinder block plug and insert a Phillips screwdriver in the hole to check the position of the counter balance shaft. The screwdriver should go in at least 2.36 in. or more, if not, rotate the oil pump sprocket once and realign the timing mark so the screwdriver goes in. Do not remove the screwdriver until the timing belt is installed.

    36.  
    37. Turn the crankshaft two revolutions to the right and align the timing marks. After 15 minutes, measure the protrusion of the pushrod on the auto tensioner. The standard measurement is 0.150-0.177 in (3.8-4.5 mm). If the protrusion is out of specification, loosen the tension pulley, apply the proper torque to the belt and retighten the center bolt.
