Default Re: DIY: Vanos hub + bolts

Then the reassembly of the vanos and tightening the 3 bolts that are accessible on each hub and rotating the engine to get to the others, 14nm for this process. For others who have done either, does it matter which way is done?
Either way will work, but you do need to have two lock pins to lock the timming if you do it the way the OP did it.

Most Timming tools only come with one. It can be done with just one pin but from what I have found, youre more likely to throw off the timming.
