FRONT TIMING CHAIN CASE
Revision: 2005 August 2005 350Z
d. Install valve timing control cover to front timing chain case.
? Do not face the magnet retarder side down to prevent
magnet retarder from dropping.
? Check the mating surface of magnet retarder and the
drum of exhaust side camshaft sprocket for foreign mate-
? Align the center of both shaft holes of the shaft and the
intake side camshaft sprocket, and then insert them.
? Be careful not to drop the seal ring from the shaft groove.
? When setting the valve timing control cover in position
by hand, if valve timing control cover is not contacting with the front timing chain case, the
dowel pin of magnet retarder may not be aligned with the dowel pin holes of cover. In this case,
return to step ?b?.
e. Tighten mounting bolts in numerical order as shown in the fig-
Completely tighten the mounting bolts with the seat surface
of valve timing control cover contacting with front timing
10. Install crankshaft pulley as follows:
a. Fix crankshaft using ring gear stopper [SST: KV10117700 (J44716)].
b. Install crankshaft pulley, taking care not to damage front oil seal.
? When press-fitting crankshaft pulley with plastic hammer, tap on its center portion (not circumference).
c. Tighten crankshaft pulley bolt.
d. Turn crankshaft pulley bolt 84 to 90 degrees clockwise [Target:
90 degrees (angle tightening)].
Check the tightening angle by using the angle wrench
[SST]. Avoid judgement by visual inspection without SST.
? Check tightening angle indicated on the angle wrench indica-
11. Rotate crankshaft pulley in normal direction (clockwise when viewed from front) to confirm it turns
12. Install in the reverse order of removal after this step.
INSPECTION AFTER INSTALLATION
Inspection for Leaks
The following are procedures for checking fluid leak, lubricates leak and exhaust gases leak.
? Before starting engine, check oil/fluid levels including engine coolant and engine oil. If less than required
quantity, fill to the specified level. Refer to MA-12, "
RECOMMENDED FLUIDS AND LUBRICANTS" .
? Run engine to check for unusual noise and vibration.
