So I finally figured out where my oil was leaking from on my car. I must have tore the front main seal when I put it on.

I took all the stuff off and put a new seal on, I started it now, and it sounds crazy! at least it doesn't leak oil :)

Can anyone give me a noob run down on how to make sure I put the timing belt on correctly? (in the right position)

Im getting so tired of this thing Im ready to send it to pick n pull!! :lol:

Newb rundown:
1. Put down any and all alcoholic beverages.
2. Buy/download a Helms manual.
3. Read said manual.
4. Gather tools and materials needed to complete the procedures in the manual.
5. Follow said procedures.
6. Clean up.
7. Pick up your alcoholic beverage of choice, kick back, smack the wife, beat the kids, kick the dogs, pet the kitty, and smile at a job well done.

Argg, The crank gear's lil grove should be alligned with the arrow.
The mark on the left side when looking at the cam gear should allign with the mark on the head, actually I believe its on the plastic cover that goes between the head and gear

Naw man, you can do this.

Is #1 at top dead center? You can confirm this using a long screwdriver with some tape over the end. Move the engine until the screwdriver is just about to start droping and the rotor on the dizzy is pointed to the #1 spark plug wire terminal.
