T.D.C. on the P1 2.0TS Engines.
I know that this has been discussed many, many times but! I have now confused myself and talked myself into an issue that may not even exist?
Cambelt and balance belt change on a 2.0TS Alloy top engine, the advice is always "Two full revolutions of the crankcase". I removed the camshaft on the inlet side in order tyo replace variator and upon putting the camshaft back in its place, i simply tightened the camshaft using the cam locks to secure the top end at TDC with the the other cam caps installed also.
So, ..... am i driving myself mad or does the crank not need need to be turned two revolutions as it takes two full revolutions to turn the camshaft one full revolution, so, do i just turn the crank until TDC on No1 cylinder ie: only one revolution needed and then mount the belt/s?
Sorry if this appears a silly question but i have this doubt in my mind before i attempt starting the engine after a full belt change and at the moment cannot think straight!
Thanks in advance as always.
