I have just replaced the harmonic damper pulley on a EJ25 motor (Moved back and broke the AC belt). The motor ran before the new one was put on and now it turns over but will not start. Has fuel spark and a gas or vapor smell coming from the air breather. I changed the crank sensor and still no luck.
The timing at top dead center is three teeth off .Will this bend the valves or can i just move them back and go back to my repairs. I have been told that this an interferance motor so if the timing is off (due to belt slippage) the valves will touch or cause problems. Also it seems that the crank sprocket has moved back about 1/16 of an inch. I may have to pull this EJ.
