I'm in the middle of replacing my BHG, I'm almost done but the timing marks specially the one on the P/S camshaft is throwing me off. You know when you turn the camshaft to the #1 cyl it gets kind of hard to get there and if you turn it another 120 degrees it tends to get looseand hard and so forth well this one I had it on the mark and it doesn't get any slack it gets kind of hard to get it in the mark and if I turn it to the point where it gets some kind of slack (like a normal cam at #1 cyl) the timing mark is way off and obviously I tried too many ways to get my car started but no luck it turns over with the sound of timing off, is anybody familiar with it? :wtf:

Hmm not really if you get (all 3 of the) timing marks lined up and tighten your timing belt according to the service manual you should be fine

If your timing is off and you are turning it by hand and you feel alot of resistance it could be the pistons bending the valves.:( Don't do that.

Yes, if your timing is correct it will turn without damaging the valves.

There might be a little resistance when the valve springs are compressed but not much. If it's really hard to turn then it might be your valves interfering.

whrt I don't understand is why the head from the other side turns with normal resistance, does one from another work different?
