ok so i removed my cams to replace the lifters, and i want to know what is the easiest way to reset the timing.
i want to know if anyone has done it before and how they did it.
Wheels/brakes/Suspension: ---------------- exhaust:
Hawk HPS Brake Pads -------------------fdf---2.5" test pipe
R1 concepts cross drilled and slotted rotors-- 2.5" cat back (angled out)
Megan Racing "Street Series" Coilover Kit ----Misc.:
Adjustable control arms -------------------vb--Short throw shifter
adjustable toe arms finally finished a TT swap on my 92 SL with the following:
DR650s, hotwired 450lph walbro, PTE 880cc injectors, AEM FPR, 2.5 inch turbo back exhaust, AEM wideband with a SAFC2, South bend stage4 6 puck clutch and many more supporting odds and ends.
Just follow the standard 60k service. Cam locks are a HUGE help, as well as some clips to hold the belt in place. Just make sure when your bolting your cam caps back down to torque to spec and in sequence.
My username was aorozco2 (Abraham Orozco) but just decided to change it to just Abraham.
And what I wanted to run by someone else is if I have the belt around the crank and decide to bolt down the exhaust cam on the rear bank and put the belt on it and put a clip to hold it and the bolt doen the intake cam on the rear bank and put another clip in place to hold it and do the same with the other back and at the end pull thepin on the tensioner to take some of the extra slack. Would it work?
Then how it would be the easiest way to do it keeping in mind that I don't have the cam lockers.
And can some one point me in the right direction as far as setting the tension goes.

Not when you can make them out of 3 dollars worth of Quicksteel and some plastic bags.
Abraham, now that you've removed the timing belt, you need to follow the procedure specified in the manual for reinstalling it and setting proper tension. There' really aren't any major shortucts you can take, nor would you want to with valve timing.
Further, for future reference, you do not need to remove the cams to replace lifters. You simply need a screwdriver to pop the rocker arms out, and then a screwdriver and some manliness to pop the rockers back in.
