\015\012Using the same 13mm socket, remove the bolt that you found under the\015\012a/c compressor. Look down and to the right of the bolt that you just\015\012removed, and you will see two more bolts. Both are 13mm. Easiest way\015\012that I found was to go under the driver side tire well, and use 3/8\015\012extensions to reach the two bolts. Once removed, the bracket and the\015\012power steering pump should be moved to the driver's side of the frame,\015\012and the a/c placed on top of the p/s assy.

Remove the bolts (6mm) that hold the timing belt cover in place.\015\012Gently work your way around the cover, and push the tabs in to remove\015\012the cover.\015\012

Use an impact wrench and 7/8 SAE socket to remove the crankshaft\015\012pulley. A SOCKET WRENCH WILL NOT WORK. Once removed, gently tap the\015\012pulley with a 2x4 (yes the wooden board) to remove. If you have a gear\015\012puller, use that. I don't own one.

Remove the old belt. Now for the alignment. Crank - sprocket on\015\012bottom. Use the bolt you removed, and a ½ drive wrench, with the 7/8\015\012socket to turn the crank. Once the keyway is at high noon, leave it\015\012alone. Next, move the oil pulley sprocket until the diamonds are\015\012aligned. This should put the oil pulley at high noon, also. The\015\012camshaft should have a diamond and a triangle. The diamond should go to\015\012high noon, and the triangle should align with a triangle on the plastic\015\012behind the sprocket. YOU SHOULD REALLY CONSIDER CLEANING THE ENTIRE\015\012AREA BEFORE ALIGNING THE SPROCKETS. You cannot align the camshaft\015\012without locating the two index (triangle and diamond) marks.\015\012

You will also notice a tensioner for the timing belt. You will\015\012need to loosen the tentioner with a 13mm and 17mm wrenches. Loosen,\015\012then use a cheeter bar bar to move the tentioner over. Lock in place by\015\012tightening the tentioner bolts. Place the belt on the crankshaft, move\015\012to the oil pulley, then to the cam pulley. Release tentioner, then\015\012check the alignment. If correct, reverse the above removal plan, and\015\012you should be good.

\015\012Don't buy the Haynes manual. I fought with the instructions for this\015\012project, and the picture for the timing belt project doesn't show the\015\012two indexes for the cam sprocket.

\015\012Also, while you are doing this, you should replace the antifreeze if you haven't in the past two years.\015\012
