  • Timing belt issue

    Hi all. Iv changed my timing belt and waterpump.
    i have lined up the cams and crank and now the car runs rought.
    what should i do.
    would the tensioner pully do this as i had issues lining the tensioner marks up?

    You’re supposed to turn the tensioner anti clockwise to apply the correct tension I’d probably re time it up and try this and just get the marker lined up properly

    here are some videos as a guide if you haven’t already sorted it

      As above but one other thing is did you remove the cam pulleys from the camshafts ?

      Reason I ask is the exhaust pulley has a location pin in the camshaft end and a boomerang shaped slot in the exhaust pulley if you took the pulleys of it would be very easy to align the exhaust pulley wrong

      It's made like that because the pulley fits more than one engine

            I take it those codes came from a pedal test ?
