Use a suitable tool [A] or wire to keep the chain [B] from
falling down into the cylinder block.
Always pull the camshaft chain taut while turning
the crankshaft when the camshaft chain is loose.
This avoids kinking the chain on the lower (crank-
shaft) sprocket. A kinked chain could damage both
the chain and the sprocket.
Camshaft Sprocket Installation
Position the piston at TDC.
Turn the crankshaft counterclockwise and align the "T"
mark line [A] of the rotor with the notch [B] of the alternator
Remember to pull the camshaft chain taut before rotating
Pull the lower side of the chain taut and fit it onto the
sprocket so that the line [A] on the sprocket aligns with
the mark on the sprocket cover mating surface projection
Fit the sprocket up into place.
Turn the camshaft so that the cam lobes point downward,
while holding the sprocket steady to align the bolt holes
Install the sprocket [B].
Install the KACR unit (see KACR Installation).
Keep the crankshaft from turning by holding a wrench on
the alternator rotor nut.
Apply a non-permanent locking agent to the threads of
camshaft sprocket bolts.
Torque - Camshaft Sprocket Bolts: 12 N·m (1.2 kgf·m, 104
Install the camshaft chain tensioner (see Camshaft Chain
Check the camshaft chain timing.
Turn the crankshaft two turns in the counterclockwise, the
crankshaft is at TDC, and re-check the camshaft chain
If the timing mark is aligned, the camshaft chain timing is
