Installing The Timing Gear Pulley For The Camshafts
NOTE: The purpose of the section, Installing the VVT unit/timing gear pulley, described here is to ensure that the VVT unit is correctly positioned and
to reset the camshaft timing gear pulley to the correct position using the markings made at the factory. This is to ensure that the conditions are correct for
any later fault-tracing.
