So in chasing down an engine issue I thought I would look at the timing. I've looked at all the usual suspects and this is my last easy access resort! I have a video of the engine running and there does seem to be a fair amount of belt slap on the upper run.
My second video, with the engine off, also shows the lower right section of the cam belt is extremely loose.
Belts and w/p done 2 years ago....by garage.
I've had a look online on the process and it doesn't seem too bad. I have managed to put the cam to TDC using the valve timing check hole and used an Allen key to locate the groove. To confirm this, there are some painted marks which line up. However, can't really get to the crank to see if this is at TDC as well.....mmmm....
So, question is, before I start tearing things apart.
1 - Is this loose cam belt normal?
2 - Is there a guide in setting TDC?
3 - Do I need special tools?
Thank you in advance,
