Timing Belt Help

Hey everyone. Ive been doing my timing belt on my h22a4 for a couple of weeks during my free time, replacing all the seals, and cleaning everything on that side of the engine. Well now I'm done replacing seals and I'm ready to start putting everything back together. I noticed my crankshaft gear is no longer aligned at top dead center. I am very confused on how the crankshaft got misaligned as it was aligned before I took the timing belt off. The camshafts are aligned tdc. What do I need to do to get everything back to tdc and how did this happen? Below are before and after pictures:

There was no tension to hold it in place. So just put the harmonic balancer on the end by hand - and slowly turn it back to TDC. Just a hair of a turn counter clockwise will do just fine.

Then proceed with the final checks prior to installing the timing belt.

Ok thanks. This is my first timing belt job and I just wanted to make sure before I tried doing anything and messed something up. Appreciate the help!

NP.


Just take your time. Triple check everything prior to installing the new auto tensioner (assuming you're using one)

You want every gear to be perfectly in line at TDC, one off can make for a headache.

Re: Timing Belt Help

Thanks for the advice! I opted to replace my auto tensioner with a new one. I read that the newer ones are more reliable and It looked like my old one was leaking oil.
