Re: 1.2 Timing Belt Change

I read from another source that on the 1.2 16v twin cam it didn't get set at TDC, rather it was set so that all 4 pistons were in line with each other, do you know if this is true?

or course it is, you must use the tools or you will bugger it up like so many before

Yes, no1 piston is halfway down on its downstroke.

They line up in order to lock the cams.

For goodness sake, don't use chalk or tippex to time these as the cam sprocket has to be loosened (with the special tool for holding the sprocket) for the belt to be properly fitted!

Re: 1.2 Timing Belt Change

Ok, This is the most complicatedly worded guide I have ever read.

Doing this myself in a few days (need to replace the water pump). I have grudgingly purchased a pair of locking tools and a tentioner tool. I can't help think Ive wasted my money. If there is only a single pulley, why do I need to lock the cams in place?

The timing on my engine is spot on as is so surely removing the old belt, whacking over a new one and tentioning will do the job? Kinda can't see why it wont? Why does the cam pulley need to be loosened when tentioning? If I didn't lock the cams, I wouldnt need to and why would I need to lock the cams if the timing is right?

Re: 1.2 Timing Belt Change

Done the belt change.

Don't bother with the tools if you are changing the belt on an already timed engine. Total waste of money and not needed.

There is a guide on BOO (for the 1.2 16v bravo but same engine) which explains how to do it without any tools although I just found it exactly the same as doing the 8v engine except the tensioner was a little more fiddly.
Thanks MarkThompson4 thanked for this post
