Hi guys!
Does anyone have a service manual or something that could tell me how to properly replace the cambelt on my Fiesta 1.8D? I have replaced it already only to find myself in the position of being able to start the engine only if I push the car. After it starts seems to be running smoothly....????
I cannot see any sign on the camshaft sprocket and I have aligned the new belt by counting the dents.....HELP!!!! PLEASE!!!

Have something to contribute?

Mate says your pump timing is out. You gotta make sure all this is correct or you running a really high risk of doing some serious damage to your engine.

Would the engine run fine if the cambelt wasnt fitted correctly?
