How Many Deg of Rotation for Crank vs Cam?
Hello, so two weekends ago I did a valve adjustment and new valve cover and spark plug gaskets. The car runs much better now (128,000 miles), but it still has a weird rattle on cold startup. Looking at another thread, this seems to be possibly timing belt tension. Unfortunately the time to do that is when the valve cover is off, and I've already resealed it. It also appears you can't get the upper timing cover off while the valve cover is on without destroying it.
So, could someone with an open B18B1 and a 19mm handy let me know how many degrees I have to rotate the crank pulley from TDC to move the cam gears by three teeth? This way I can do the adjustment without removing the covers. Much appreciated!
