Miata MX5 Timing Belt - How to Fit & Align in Under a Minute. (Miata / MX5)
A quick guide to getting your timing belt alignment accurately, quickly and
on the first go - without having to stress about clamping the belt onto cam
gears and messing about with penning in white marks everywhere and without
upsetting the cam(s) or cranks TDCness.
This procedure works on single and twin cam engines, and I have performed
it successfully on several different vehicles with the same level of speed
On this demo, I was changing some leaky cam seals so the belt shown here
isnt new. You can also see bits of degreaser dripping off the
block/waterpump on some scenes.
This demo assumes sufficient mechanical knowledge on engine servicing and
is only provided as a guide to specifically fit the belt without upsetting
the cam / crank timing.
