Hi,

I'm replacing the headgasket on my daughters 206 & when stripping it down found that the timing holes / marks on the flywheel and camshaft don't line up exactly. I've locked the flywheel ok but the hole in the camshaft pulley is a few degrees past the mark on the head. I've marked the exact position so can put it back in the same place but the question is - should i put it back in the same (apparently wrong) place or line it up where it should be ?

thanks

Hi, the timing locking holes are there for the purpose and should be used.

It is probably the case that the last time the engine was timed the person doing so (if locking everything up) did not  tension the belt well enough between the toothed wheels (the only slack should be on the tensioner side).

Also having fitted the belt, (pref' a new one) you should rotate the engine a couple of times by hand and re-check the timing.
