Cam belt failure... timing question!
Got a lovely 2004 156 2.4 jtd 20v... that decided a cambelt was additional to its requirements at motorway speeds the other day.
I've got a little experience with engines so gonna try DIY it back together.
So I've removed the rocker cover/cam carrier and found myself a half dozen broken rocker arms... I've then put a bore scope down the injector holes and the pistons all seem to look ok, no real markings from valves that i can see - valves themselves i cant see as the mirror for my scope won't fit. tops of the stems all seem to sit at the same height so i'm going to assume all good...
what you think? foolish? i really don't fancy removing the head - looks like a big job...
So when i buy myself some new rockers and a timing kit ill need to bolt the rocker cover on - so main question is, how do you set the timing on the crank and cam to put the two back together? i see a mark on both the pulleys but not sure where they align to?
advice appreciated as i'm sure these rockers arent going to be cheap... in fact, anyone know what alfa charge? will try gsf/eurocarparts as well i suppose!
