Please Help

I forgot to mention, when i have the pulley at 0IT when I put the camshaft gears on top the left camshaft gear doesn't fit in properly at the begging or line up accurately. I had to get a wrench and wrench towards the right to line it up then drill the top cover to keep it in place. I started car and it sounded horrible (rough Idle). So I took the engine apart again, and with a wrench turned the left camshaft over so the right camshaft and pulley moved along as well to get the pistons moving. everything turns over and is lined up...Odd. I did notice at one point of turning the engine is more difficult to turn over. What am I doing wrong?

Maybe oil isnít getting to the lifters.

A compression test might be your next step.

I don't know for certain ,,but when I have a problem I try to do everything the right way...
Rotate the engine using the crankshaft and confirm that 0 T corresponds to the number one piston being at the top of its compression stroke.
Then check camshaft timing marks are also correct.

Is the chain tensioner in good shape? Installed properly?

you need to do yourself a favor and do a leak down test. compression test if you dont have a leak down tester. post results. harbor freight has both for cheap.

230 Kompressor timing

Check that all timing marks on camshafts and crankshaft line up correctly.

Just to confirm what you are saying.... With TD center on the harmonic balancer and both cam adjusters lined up. Turn the crankshaft clockwise and when it comes back around they should all line up again....every time around??

I had a guy tell me that they would only line up every 2 times around. That didnt sound right nor did it sound possible to me.

I have mine put back together except for plugs and coil packs, I would like to check it like this first before trying to crank it.... This is my first timing chain replacement

The M271 1.8 kompressor is a DOHC 4 stroke engine.. intake ,compression ,combustion exhaust.
The crank rotates twice and each cam rotates once per cycle.
So that means they will line up every 720 degrees.

After number one has been put at TDC on compression stroke ,,rotating 180 degrees will put cylinder 3 at TDC. compression. 180 more will put cylinder 4 at compression tdc ,,,and then 180 more will put cylinder 2 at compression tdc.

Good luck.
