Tried fitting the cam belt this morning but can't get the timing marks to line up. With the flywheel pin in place and number 1 at TDC the cam locks up before the timing mark on the pulley lines up. With the crank turned back quarter turn the cam will rotate 360 degrees and with the cam repositioned the crank will turn 360 degrees. I don't think any valves are bent but can't be sure without taking the head off which I don't want to do as if it needs a recon head at £225, gasket at £50, cam belt at £35 and bottom pulley at £35 it's not worth repairing.
Watching a video on Youtube they fit the flywheel pin at the front of the engine whereas Haynes says at the back. Are there two holes in the flywheel and I've got it 180 degrees out? I tried finding a second hole in the flywheel and front of the engine but nothing there.
Am I missing something obvious?
