Timing Belt: Testing and Inspection
Prior to installing the timing belt inspect the teeth of the crank and cam pulleys for burrs or damage. Light burrs may be removed, but any damage
which permanently mars the teeth/belt mating surface will require the pulley to be replaced.
Inspect the inside of the timing belt covers for rubbing or wear. The plastic covers may warp, causing the pulleys or belts to rub against the inside
of the cover.
Inspect the tensioner pulley for wobble or looseness. The pulley should spin freely with no rough spots or lateral (side-to-side) movement.
Inspect the tensioner pulley surface. It should be clean and free of nicks and burrs. If any damage is noted the pulley should be replaced.
Inspect the camshaft and crankshaft oil seals for leakage. Any seal which shows signs of leakage should be replaced.
WARNING: Oil leakage will damage the new timing belt.
