    Setting TDC Z16XE

    how do you set TDC on a Z16XE? is it when the cam sprocket timing marks are facing each other?

    cheers

    I have never stripped down a Z16XE, but I have done other DOHC engines in the Vauxhall range.

    I check the notch on the bottom pulley it lined up with the pointer in that area. Then check the marks on the cam pulleys are both pointing to 12 o'clock and in line with some marks on the cam cover housing.


    I hope this helps.

    on my X16XEL

    the cam pully marks have to face each and align the crank pully with the mark on the block.

    just make sure that the crank pully is realigned before refitting the belt
