I'm trying to figure out how I got the timing off when I didn't move the
crank or the cam during the initial timing belt change. What I recall
is that there was almost no tightening of the crank pulley. I set up
my usual 24-inch breakerbar and piece of 3-foot pipe to loosen the bolt,
kind of dreading the effort because it's sort of left-handed and that's
the side that hurts, and when I pushed on the pipe with my right
hand, there was almost no resistance. I could have used a ratchet and
socket. What I think now is they put the pulley on without engaging
the key in the crankshaft keyway, so when I lined up the pulley with
the keyway and installed it, the timing relationship changed.
You cannot rotate the crank 180 degrees by itself. I had to turn the
crank however far it'll go, reinstall the belt, turn some more to clear
the interference, uninstall the belt, turn the crank some more,
reinstall, etc., until I could get both the dot on the camshaft pulley
aligned with its mark and the mark on the flywheel in the right spot.
