You dont actually set the belt. The two pulley's that the belt is attached to have distinct marks on them that need to be alligned. Once they are alligned you slip the belt over the pulley's. Being careful not to throw the allignement off. It has to be perfectly alligned or your car will back fire. Once the belt is on just tighten it down.


There's a little more to it than that on the cars I've worked on. The two pulley's your describing are the camshaft pulleys, sometimes there's only one if its a SOHC (single overhead cam) vs DOHC (dual overhead cam) as is being described now. Plus there may be other variations depending on vehicle designs, so refer to one of your particular vehicles shop manual's. ANYWAYS, generally theres also the CRANKshaft pulley and TIMING Belt pulley on the lower side of the project area(timing belt system). that needs to be aligned too. Short version of it all is TDC(top dead center) for the CAMshaft pulleys and TDC for the CRANKshaft pulley which is generally attached to the outside of the Timingbelt pulley and you wouldn't even know theirs 2 their because the crankshaft pulley is about twice the size of the timing belt pulley so it hides it. I wish I could add a good picture from a shop manual so you could see the simplicity of it all. Just go to any parts store and look up the timing belt section of a vehicle similar or identical to yours and you'll see.

Timing belt for a Daewoo leganza is off?

If you mean the belt fell off the gears while the engine was running, you will have to replace the cylinder head. This is a zero clearance DOHC motor. When timing jumps, slips, or belt slips or breaks, you WILL have broken valves. Be prepared for a lengthy search---even for a salvaged head---Daewoo parts are becoming scarcer by the day---good luck
