Mk4 R32 Timing off
Posted 30 January 2021 - 10:02 PM
I replaced my Timing Chain.
After rotate the Engine over , the Timing is
no longer correct.
The Adjuster are fully counterclockwise. The intermediate shaft is at 12 o'clock.
TDC on Cylinder 1, ground tooth lined up, locking tool fit.
After Turn the Crank over:
Ground tooth lined up, intermediate at 12 O'clock
I get to the point were the cams need to be locked they are not aligned so the locking tool doesnt fit.
I have to turn der Crankshaft off TDC to aligned the locking tool.
After rotate the Crankshaft

Looks normal - sometimes the crank can be a few mm advanced - I'm sure there's a note in ELSA regarding this. As long as the initial marks lined up, cams fully retarded (VVT fully counter-clockwise) and you have 16 rollers between the cam teeth then you are good to go.

From PowerDubs @ Vortex:
you just have 3 spots to verify timing.
1. crank pulley
2. VVT arrows
3. Cam end slots
I've never seen a crank pulley with the mark in the right spot. You always need to go past the mark a bit.
The arrows on the sprockets are the ones to watch and it is imperative that you preload the sprockets before putting the chain on.
I ignore the slots completely. No need to worry about them, no need for the tool, nada.
