I took that down..didn't come across right about the camshaft locking tool. It has to do with the interference engine, and while timing it does not have to be running to bend a valve ..and the answer is 6 o'clock on the crank

Yes I afraid they might have already bent some. But hopefully they didn't learn the same lesson I did about interference engines. When you do get belt on and timing marks lined up properly if it still won't start or run properly then do a compression check. Any cylinders showing 0 psi or extreemely low psi will indicate bent valves. But don't worry not that hard of a fix. Just remove head and replace bent valves and valve guide seals.

I change the crankshaft seal on 2000 Holden Rodeo 3.2 and I line up the marks on it but when I turn the it will crank but don't go. Joe
