You also need to separate the passenger side engine mount in order to remove belt cover.

Ray, I read your post about VCT solenoid, and it kinda sounded familiar... daaam I completely forgot about it. We need to settle it down ($).

I forget how easily it is to take off that top timing belt cover.. I think it's 4 screws but you also have to remove the valve cover to get to them.
The upper t belt cover does have four bolts but it goes on after the valve cover. This cover actually hides most of the vct gear solenoid wires.

To take the TBelt cover off correctly without cracking it, you actually have to remove the bolts from the Passenger Engine mount to get to them. **MAKE SURE YOU SUPPORT THE ENGINE BEFORE TAKING THOSE OFF**

SVT VCT Gear

slim02svt, I need to know if you found an answer to your vct timing belt and cam issue. I have the same problem. Lock the cams at TDC, rotate engine twice and vct cam (intake) is off by about 10%. What was your fix?

Put the VCT cylinder back on its' internal end stop. When you loosen the sprockets the VCT 'springs up', or the spring snaps the cylinder one way to a dead stop, that is it. A third timing mark if you will. When you move the motor around that tends to pull the cylinder back off the stop, especially if oil has leaked out of the VCT due to wear.

You're really looking for 3 things there, TDC, camtool in backs of cams AND that cylinder on its' dead end stop, if it's not you rotate cam until it hits solid and then bar will go in back of both cams if all is right.

There's no magic there............but I suppose to the uninitiated there is. They certainly seem to have hell with it even on non-VCT ones.

Magic no , doing it your way or the way the book says 90% of the time you will get a over or under advanced CEL

No on has put more timing belts on the SVT engine then I have , and even knowing the SVT engine like I do I get the light about 30% of the time , any more I shoot for close then adjust the intake cam according to the CEL and its spot on , less hassle , less time , less frustration
