A few weeks ago I heard the ticking. I felt that the tensioner/belt would last for a little bit, but I was wrong.
The inner ribs of my timing belt have basically been ripped off, leaving the inner belt smooth. When my crank turns over it just spins inside the belt without moving it. I have noticed that the inner cogs have been torn off in more than one part of the belt.
I have the thing torn down, but havent removed the belt or tensioner yet. I figure that the camshaft positions are not lined up with each other anymore, so i dont really know what to do. It's not as easy as lining up the marks on the belt now is it? I mean... if one of the camshafts is a full rotation off it wont really be lined up even if the marks are in the right spot, correct?
Could someone shed some light on the procedure that I need to use to get this thing back together? Please give me as many details as you can, as I really dont want to have to take it back apart!
