Im trying to put the timing belt back on but the cam
pulleys actually seem stuck after tring to align

What size engine is this?

74,525

Have you rotated the engine to the point that valves are hitting the pistons? Be very careful or you may end up with bent valves.

Also is this a SOHC or a DOHC?
