  1. Clamp the camshaft in a vise, and make sure that the camshaft timing gear does not rotate.
  2. Cover all the oil ports with vinyl tape except the advance side port shown in the illustration.
  3. Apply air pressure of 100 kpa (1.0 Kgf/cm2, 14 psi) to the oil path, then turn the camshaft timing gear to the advance direction (counterclockwise) by hand.

Caution:

Cover the paths with a shop rag to avoid oil splashes.

Hint:

Depending on the air pressure, the camshaft timing gear will turn to the advance angle side without applying force by hand. Also, under the condition that the pressure is difficult to apply because of air leakage from the port, there may be the case that the lock pin is difficult to release.

  1. Remove the flange bolt of the camshaft timing gear.
