hello everyone, i have a few questions.

1. when we took the timing belt off, one of our cams jumped really far forward. my question is how do i tell if my cylinder is in tdc compression.

2. if it is in compression is it okay to rotate the sprockets to their timing marks?



any help would be much appreciated, this really has been a nightmare.


thanks

Those belts are a pain. As long as you timed the engine BEFORE removing the belt, all you have to do is move the cams so the marks line up, just as bruce2 mentioned. The cams on the rear head always move, unless you lock them down. Just realign the marks and put the belt back on.
