Hi Graham, the timing belt has broken and we are going to replace it, but do not know the settings.

Cobber

If it is a twin cam just line up the timing mark on crankshaft pulley TDC and marks on cam gear if belt has broken probably has tied the valves in a Knot

Only change the seals if there is evidence of oil. recently did my laser 01 kq model, no leaks from seals, so we didnt change the seals did waterpump and cam belt though. my mechanic and i did it!

His advice on seals is " No oil leak, No change seals as they will tend to leak if changed"

But that could be different

Have you checked to see if you have bent the valves or damaged the pistons ??


Note THIS information is NOT specifically for the Camry BUT should work

Generally... the timing marks have to be aligned, then there (probably) will be marks on the timing gears too, all have to be aligned when the belt is tightened, so often the marks have to be offset a bit to allow for the adjustment procedure.

Hi cobber. As said above. It is possible that the valves have been damaged after the belt broke as the pistons can interfere with them when the valve/s are open. It is not easy to see the timing marks but here is a brief explanation.

The camshaft pulley has a small hole in it, this hole is lined up with a mark on the top of the camshaft bearing journal. The best way to get the crankshaft in time is to remove the #1 spark plug and rotate the engine until the piston is all the way up at the same time temporarely install the lower timing cover and the pulley, set the pulley to the zero mark, line up the notch on the pulley with the zero on the cover)make sure that after the belt is installed the engine is rotated by hand then see if the marks are still lined up and the belt tensioner is adjusted so that the belt is tight.
If all else fails your local Library should have a workshop manual you could look at. I would also look at changing the oil pump housing gasket as well as the three oil seals and water pump as recomended above. Regards,Bob.
