    Timing Belt Alignment

    Ok, so I got some help in the alignment for the gears and cogs from the following thread: Timing Belt and Water Pump Replacement

    However, my factory alignment is completely different then whbat the aforementioned thread was showing me. Here are the images:

    If anyone could let me know if this timing is normal I would appreciate it. The car has a slight hesitation sometimes when accellerating and I am not sure if it would be because of the timing or a bad ignition coil. The car has been tuned except for a possible old ignition coil.

    Thanks in advance!

    If that is your stock timing belt and you are asking if it is normal for all the alignments to be off my answer is yes that is normal.

    When you install the timing belt make sure all the lines are properly aligned. Once the car starts running you can see the lines will be out of alignment again. Nothing to worry about.
