Re: No Spark V8Q

Checked with my shop today. They had both cams and harmonic balancer right
on the marks. I saw it.. Still no spark. They didn't use the special tool to
hold cams (I think the pin that breaks) but they look like they line up
fine.Am I missing something here? Car ran fine before. Didn't pull any codes
yet, but still think it has something to do with the belt. BTW.. Balancer is
on TDC of compression stroke of #1 cylinder. Hate to start replacing sensors
yet. $$$$
