Hi All,

Long story short is that I was doing the cold start rattle TSB and after removing the VVT-i gear my bungee cord slipped and my chain lost all tension. It seemed to have slipped about 3 teeth and I couldnt get it back to the timing marks. I have totally removed the timing chain/cover but I want to be sure I am lining up the timing marks/chain correctly. I have the new VVT-i gear installed and I locked it after install. My question is can I simply line up the timing chains pink link with the mark on the crank and then slightly turn each cam shaft so that each timing mark aligns with its own yellow chain link? I did set TDC per the TSB instructions, I think the timing is close to correct. Any help on this is much appreciated!!!

Thank you!
