Tdc??? Help

OK. Just starting my belt job and I am having trouble finding TDC. I cannot see the line through the square hole in the bellhousing. I have lined up the reference on the bottom of the housing (see photo) and I am very close on the cam pulley. (see photo). I am thinking of going ahead like this. Should the cam pulley mark line up perfectly? I looked at it and it seems like the next tooth would be further off then this one. Why can't I see anything through the hole???? Are there any other ways I can check before I start????

You are fine, proceed.

The 944S pulley has a little bit of slop in it - the keyway is wider then the key - gives you +\- about 1 tooth on the crank pulley.

now I get in there and I realise that I have to take off the crank pulley to change the waterpump. I really didn't want to have to do that. Also, I cannot get to the bottom bolt for the tensioner without taking off the pulley.

Yes you can, you just need to have the tensioner fully extended to get at them.

Yes, you do need to remove the crank pulley - 24mm bolt, torque to 205NM. Make sure you have a flywheel lock

Cut the plastic belt housing in half. Don't need to take either the balance or crank pulleys off.

When was the last time you changed your timing and balance belts and/or cam chain and tensioner?
