Not Giving Up

Can someone walk me through the process of using the 7999 cam alignment tool? I've had this car down for over a year now and have tried a few things when I've had time to mess with it. The cam sprockets were removed to replace the seals and I'm sure the timing is off. I'm starting over and I currently have the timing belt off and the valve covers off. Any advice is welcomed.

Thanks

Check the service manual, easier than trying to explain it here. (it has pictures too)....can be accessed here; same process for all 3.2/3.5 engines.

This is very frustrating. When I turn the crankshaft to get the #1 piston at TDC, the mark on the crankshaft gear is not anywhere close to lining up with the TDC mark on the housing. How can it be so far off?

Got the right cylinder? #1 is the front passenger side.

You are correct, I was actually looking at the wrong one. That's what I get for using a YouTube video. Now, I'm just back to the original problem.

Sorry to hear that your car's been down so long. Must be frustrating. I had a 93 Intrepid with a 3.5 and a 97 Intrepid with 3.5. I did timing belt water pump jobs on both of them. I had to replace the cam sprocket on one, but from what I can remember it was a factory key slot so the cam sprocket could only install in one position. I installed the sprocket and pointed the marks on both cam sprockets towards the left side mark above. That was to keep them within the 2 marks above when I released the the tensioner against the timing belt. I don't see why you need the cam alignment tool. In my understanding each cam goes through one revolution during the igniting of the fuel air mixture in all 6 cylinders. As long as the lobes on your cams are okay, your cams and cam sprockets should work just fine. After timing belt install, the check is the 2 cam sprockets line up between the 2 marks above after you turn the crank 2 revolutions. Best of luck, Ben
