I bought a used SVT engine a few months ago and want to change the timing belt. I have the CFM timing tool. To find TDC I just insert the pin and turn the crank until it stops and that is TDC? What if the belt on the engine slipped before I bought it, does the pin guaranty TDC? What is this about the cam gear timing? Say I turn the crank and find TDC how do I know the cam gears are correct? Also, I read that getting the VCT timing correct on the SVTF motor is a pain. How is this done?

Sorry for the barrage of questions but every write-up or how-to leaves me with more questions than I started with.
