What did you replace that you are calling a "pull"? I'm not sure what you mean.


If you mean your car broke a timing belt and you set the marks on the gears that's not all you need to do. You will have to also set the number 1 cylinder to top dead center and then make sure all the correct timing marks are in line. .
