Hi
I am nearly done with changing my 2004 timing belt,h20 pump, tensioner and idler.
I read about moving rear cam in posts slightly if need be. I can not "tweek " or move the rear cam with out it springing forward and once at TDC "tweeking" back wards causes it to spring back.
I ended up just leaving it put at TDC and got the belt on, but I really wonder why it does the springing action??
I was able to get belt on and line up cams and crank, I must of rotated the new belt 50 times and checked all TDC
alignment. I ended up going counter clockwise to re-align the rear cam only back to TDC.
has any one had this spring forward on rear cam, and is this normal.


thanks

See my response in your other post. It should not move even if you bump it 1/2 tooth. If all the marks are aligned, just put it together and forget about it.

thanks for helpful tips.
I am tying up loose ends ,covers, plugs etc..
what is your opinion on tightening the crank bolt, do you think I need a special tool to keep pulley from moving.??
Is factory torque a big deal for this bolt?

I would suggest using a torque wrench and pulley holder. Put clean engine oil on the crank bolt threads and between the washer and bolt head. Torque is 185 ft-lbs.

Many auto parts stores will loan you this pulley holder for free.
