Re: Alfa 33 1.7 quad cam timing
Upper cam wheel has two lines etched parallel these should line up with single mark on lower cam wheel. Both banks.
T notch (TDC) on flywheel against fixed reference on rear cover. Belts fitted, left first.
Slacken tensioner fastening nut. 'Nip up'.
Turn crankshaft several turns in proper direction.
Turn crankshaft 90 degrees to obtain 'dot' mark on flywheel.
'Arrow' marks on camwheels should point at each other (inlet and exhaust).
Slacken fastening nuts on right tensioner, settle, tighten to correct torque of 29 to 36 Nm.
Rotate engine 360 degrees. Dot mark in aperture and repeat for left tensioner.
Rotate engine and check again.
