93 VG30DE Timing Belt Replacement, Positioning Cam Marks

Postby midnightworker » Sat Nov 07, 2015 2:59 pm

Hi all, I have a 93 J30t with a VG30DE. Recently I was driving around 50mph at 3-4krpm and my timing belt broke, so I am in the process of fixing it, and dreading the possibility that my valves are bent. I've already removed the radiator, fan, belts, crankshaft bolt/pulley, timing belt covers, autotensioner, and camshaft position sensor(CPS). Now, I'm at the step of repositioning the cams at their marks, however, I'm having extreme difficulty with the exhaust camshaft to which the CPS attaches. It just won't budge. Help?

I've also posted in the J30 forums, and can be viewed here: post6676953.html#p6676953

I've turned this into a valve replacement job. That's the end of this thread, I guess. See you in another where I discuss this valve project!
