I am changing the water pump and all belts on my 01 crv. Was putting everything back together and can’t get cylinder 1 to tdc. How can I correct this?
"Only" a tooth off? They should be lined-up almost perfectly. There are cam holders which you can stick a 3/16"(?) drill bit into to hold them in place when you remove the TB. I initially didn't know about the cam holders when I started doing my '98's first TB job years ago which made the process kinda frustrating since both cams kept shifting even with the plugs removed..and then someone mentioned the cam holders to me on an online forum. I looked in my FSM and sure enough I found them...went back out to the vehicle and stuck the appropriate sized drill bit into the holes(you have to line the hole in each cam with the hole in the cam holders). It made the entire process much easier.Got no 1 cylinder to tdc, intake and exhaust cams are only a tooth off, easier than I thought it would be!
