Drag to rearrange

With the crankshaft stopper in place, rotate the engine clockwise until it no longer moves. The timing bar should slide into place with relative ease. We are now at TDC

If the bar does not slide in easily, check that you are indeed at TDC and not at the top of the compression stroke

If you are at TDC, the timing bar may still not quite fit. As the belt ages it stretches, causing slight variations in the timing. Using a proper sized open end wrench, you can rotate the cams slightly to get the bar into place

The camshafts are keyed to be held with open end wrenches between cylinders #1 and #2

The intake camshaft is a 1"

The exhaust camshaft is a 1 1/4"
