Camshaft Timing Marks Not there
Hi. I have a Laguna II 1.9dci and have been having some problems with it smoking..
Anyway, I recently done the cambelt and put a new one on exactly the way the old one came off..
I have done many cambelts in the past, but this engine does not seem to have a mark on the engine backplate to match the camshaft. I have the pin in the crankshaft so I know this is at top dead. The camshaft pulley has a round dot on it so I can get this mark, but there is suppose to be a mark on the back plate, but there isn't??
I could be a tooth out and not realise it, if it was would it damage the engine, would I get smoke as the timing would be wrong, although the car runs lovely, pulls away no problem..
Are there any marks on the camahafts themselves if I took the rocker cover off???
