listening to the sound of crickets............... Stomp sorry one of those buggers was too loud ..
No. Small adjustments like this is ok.I just did my timing belt yesterday and after I had all the timing marks in the correct position I removed the belt and while I was removing some of the other components, the rear (closest to the firewall) cam sprocket snapped ahead to about the 3 o’clock position.
I attempted to rotate it clockwise but felt resistance so I moved it counterclockwise back to the original position.
Have I damaged anything?

Like Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price, good of you to get back in the game after being off one tooth. View attachment 147787
And if the mechanic who fixed your tooth for $200 is in the Montreal region, give me his contact info, and in return I'll give you the name of my dental clinic, who fixed mine.
To be quit honest it has been 9 months.. so I do have a little hesitation on this sequence but I'm 99% sure that I did the rotation and then pulled the pin!Thanks for coming back and finishing it out. Too many posts just leave us hanging. Just to clarify, you pulled the pin after you rotated it several times to check that it was still aligned, right? If you pulled the pin before you rotated it, that could have caused your problem.
Sure, I'd be happy to have his info. Always good to have some good places to go to if the need arises. I assume you give him a positive recommendation, and it wouldn't be the first time he worked on a PIlot.My mechanic is indeed in Montreal area so I can give you his adress if you want to👌🏽💯
Yes indeed! It's also a small size scrap yard and they have an 06 pilot in the back so pretty useful for quick fixes!Sure, I'd be happy to have his info.

Thanks, and nice to know they have an 06 in the back. I might go check it out. I'm familiar with the area since I drove one of my daughters out there for business training activities for a few months a couple of years ago. You never know what goodies you might find on a salvage yard Pilot, maybe even a set of fender flares.Yes indeed!

There you go 👌🏽
You're 100% right! Even though it was a hassle the first time, I feel so much more confident taking on a 2nd timing belt now!I think if you ever needed another TB WP job, you'd be better at it the next time. After doing 3 more of these timing belt jobs in these 9 months, counting teeth on the belt seemed less important than making sure the marks were lined up perfectly and leaving no slack in the belt under the water pump between the 2 cams and on the right side down to the crankshaft. Only then pull the pin.
I start by placing the belt over the rear cam, looping it under the water pump (#4), then over the front cam (#3). If the cams are on their marks, there should be no slack between. Then continuing down the right side, pulling the belt tight over the Idler pully (#2) down around the crankshaft gear. If the crankshaft gear is on its mark, there should be no slack in the belt down the right side. All slack should be on the tensioner side before pulling the pin.You're 100% right! Even though it was a hassle the first time, I feel so much more confident taking on a 2nd timing belt now!
Also just to make sure I understand what you're saying clearly.. which segments are you referring to that should not have slack? (Ex: 1 to 2, 6 to 1, etc)
