So pretty much i started working on my car today and iam almost done. i am changing a HG, the old HG was Blown!!! Anyways so i have a few ?'s about some issues iam having or not to sure about. first one is i did not mark any of my timing i jus pretty much took off my head without looking at the timing or marking it where it was. Second does anyone know what the timing for a 99 d16y8? Back to the crank and cam, I called my friend and he told me it was easy to fix, he said to Manually move the crank until the white mark was pointing up to the sky and he said to do the same with the cam gear pretty much he said they both had to be the same, and that was it. He told not to worry about the distributor because i can time that with a timing gun when the car is running. so about the crank pulley and the cam gear being the same alined is that right?? if anyone could please let me know thanks!
