\015\012support engine... remove engine mount... remove alternator, power stearing pump, compressor (if equipt) do not remove hoses from power stearing pump or compressor move them out of the way were they wont get damaged. Remove the tension pulley for the serpentine belt, and the tensioner for the compressor belt if equipt. then remove the compressor mounting bracket. Next remove the engine mounting plate and the crank pulley and balancer assembly. you should now be able to remove the the 3 piece timing cover. Once removed remove the tensioner spring from the water pump and loosen the tensioner nut. Remove the belt. At this point it is also recommended to replace the water pump and plumbing as well. The water pump service life is aproximately the same as the timing belt at 60,000 miles. This engine in stock form is a non interfering type engine. Meaning that moving the cams or crank out of sync will not cause damage. Turn each of the cams over by hand and line them up with the timing mark on the top of the back cover with the marks on the pulleys. Using a wrench turn the crank so that the pulley mark lines up with the mark cast into the block. replace the belt, tensioner spring (replace tensioner if warn) and tighten the tensioner bolt. roll the crank over 2 complete turns forward and recheck the cams to make sure the marks are still lined up. roll the crank backwards and recheck the timing marks again. (this process is much easier done with the plugs removed.) If everything is still lined up correctly (crank at TDC and cam pulleys pointing to each designated mark on the covers.) reassemble the cover and assessorys in the reverse order that they were removed and reinstall the old motor mount or replace if needed.
