Timing belt slipped. I turned the crank until cam is at 12 mark But the crank is at 9. Do i adjust crank or cam once i change the belt? Is there a way to ensure valves are at proper place once i set #1 to tdc?

I don't know kev2, op said split port, but I am not sure if he means dual over head cam or a single.

Without this vital info, I am not willing to proceed.

But then again, I his original post, he talks about cam in the singular mode.

My french is getting in the way here.

@op, plz post the 8th vin #

Vin #3 is a DOHC.

Vin #P is a SOHC.

Plz post back, as these engine are VERY different from one another.

Could this be like the 98 ZX2 with a DOHC engine, ha, where are the timing marks, kid's had a broken plastic idler pulley, that was a job, but not long lived, she had to park on street at college with salt trucks spraying salt all over it, center of it was sagging, could barely open the doors, this was like six years ago, forgetting all the details.
