How do you line the timing belt pulleys for a 1994 Dodge colt?
I'm assuming this is the Mitsubishi 1.5. There is a dot cast
into the cam gear that has to align with a triangular pointer cast
into the head. The hard part comes in lining them up properly; the
engine is below fender level, so you can't eyeball it. You'll have
to use a small mirror. Another method is to straighten out a
paperclip and use it to line up the correct gear tooth against the
cast marker on the head. It shouldn't need to be said that the #1
cylinder (which is the one closest to the timing belt end of the
engine) must be at TDC (although on this engine #1 and #4 will both
be at TDC simultaneously).
