Well I just got done with my T-belt, and I would like to get a second opinion on how things look... Take a look.





Oh and to advance the cams do I adjust to the right or left?
Thanks

Not quite, your exhaust cam rotated ccw when you applied tension. Your supposed to clip the belt to the pulleys first with the pulleys in time with each other THEN time the rest of the components . Just making sure you know.

Also, The timing notch on the block, it should point to the middle of the notch on the crank.

You might want to JB Weld that cap in place for the BS elimination as well.

You can use Zip Ties to hold the timing belt in place. Thats what I did, 3 per cam gear.

Now, I'm gonna ask a newbie question here: On the 6bolt motors, the cam sprockets are the same (like my '90 Laser), but with the 7bolt motors, why the changeout on the sprocket design, esp with the intake sprocket looking different than the exhaust, along - what is behind the intake sprocket-some sort of balancer flywheel thingey?

...new trick to mount the alternator - in place of the A/C compressor?

Thats been done many, many times before. You can buy kits for it, or someone on this forum has actually come up with a way to mod your old A/C bracket and fab your own kit. Use the search function, and you'll find it!:rolleyes:

Damn oh well looks like me and my GF will be fixing the timing before going to see Hancock.

Im taking a wild guess that adjusting the cam gears to the right is advancing and to the left is retarding?

Thanks for the info. And yes will be putting on some JB weld on that cap.
