Timin' Belt Covers.
Posted 18 November 2011 - 12:21 PM
Then I Noticed something that I've forgot: The tiny point in the Back part of the Timing belt covers, that is intended for Timing Synchronization, went away with the Covers...
I will Try to make my own timing Mark on the Metal Surface Behind, this night.
But before that, I'll Like to know How you (The people who Run their EA82's without Timing belt Covers) did to stamp the Timing Marks.
Anyone has Pics to Post?

(And porcupines LOVE plywood. They seem to go after the glue.)

For 0 deg TDC #1, the passenger side cam dot will be pointing at the sharp edge of the valve cover just above the 'SUBARU'
When the timing belts are serviced, and the crank pulley is removed, the woodruff keyway will be at 6 o'clock position for the III mark on the flywheel.

... the woodruff keyway ...
Have you Done your own timing Marks?

I am not sure what other tems to call it, a slot, a keyway, but the type of keyway it is would be called a woodruff key (half circle key into slot)

So, Do you have Pictures of whatever mark have you done to the engine to substitute the covers' marks?

Notice the position of the bolts, and the location of the roll pin.
when the cam is 180 deg rotated, the dot will still line up with the valve cover gasket.

The other side is the Same, isn't it?

I will take Pictures and post here, so you can see my "Naked" EA82

Here you can see how the (dirty) engine Looks without the Covers ("Naked") on my BumbleBeast:

I Made a Short Video while Driving but also it has many angles of the "Naked" Timing belts in Motion.
Here you can see it:
Please, Let me Know what do you Think about it!

Btw, the Bumble Beast is looking nice.

What software do you edit with? I have yet to try special effects in my videos.
I think it would be a neat idea to make a video of open timing belts, and throw a bunch of rocks, sand and other debris at them while running. Not suggesting you do it on your car, though! I would do so on my own car for demonstration.

... I should probably note that last winter, I came out from work to find all of my tires completely iced over. ...
Snow could be a Problem, I've seen pics of engine bays completely Drown in Snow, during fast winter winds; then snow becomes solid as Rock...
...the Bumble Beast is looking nice.
Thank you! ... I'm Glad that you like it!

I like the video. I added it to my 'favorites' on my channel...

I use Pinnacle Studio HD, I has another videos on my Youtube's Channel:
but Youtube removed the audio from them, because I had "Iron Maiden" and "Within Temptation" Music in the Background, due something related to the songs Rights. :-\
