HELP!!! Pics Attached!
Hello, I’ve got an 08 Suzuki xl7 with the GM high feature 3.6l v6 motor. Installing all new Timing Chains. Installed Left bank timing chain, and primary timing chain correctly. NOW the Right Bank Secondary Timing Chain is where the issue is! The Right bank Camshaft VVT Sprockets aren’t aligning where they need to be for me to install the chain correctly. The R marks on the sprockets are towards the bottom of the motor not the top where they need to be. How do I fix this? Remove camshafts? Or what? If anyone could help I’d truly appreciate it!

I know this thread is 4 months old, but I figured I could post this for anyone with future issues. You have to have the camshaft holding tools and after setting the left and primary chains in "position 1", the crankshaft must be manually turned to "position 2". Good luck and check everything a hundred times to make sure its right before closing it up.


Special Tools
• EN 46111 Crankshaft Rotation Socket (I think i used an old chain on the crank sprocket, or idler after primary is set, once too)

• EN-48383 Camshaft Retaining Tools

Important: There should be no need to rotate the camshaft more than 10 degrees. Using the hex cast into the camshaft rotate the camshaft in order to install the EN-48383 .

Install the EN 48383-1 onto the rear of the left camshafts.
Important: All camshafts must be locked in place before installation of any camshaft drive chains.

Ensure that the EN 48383-1 is fully seated onto the camshafts.

Ensure the crankshaft is in the stage one timing position with the crankshaft sprocket timing mark aligned to the stage one timing mark on the oil pump cover using the EN 46111 .

Install the left secondary camshaft drive chain.

Place the left secondary camshaft drive chain around the inner sprocket of the left camshaft intermediate drive chain idler with the timing camshaft drive chain link aligned to the alignment access hole made in the left camshaft intermediate drive chain idler outer sprocket.

Wrap the secondary camshaft drive chain around both left actuator drive sprockets.
Ensure there are 10 links between the timing camshaft drive chain links for the camshaft position actuator sprockets.

Align the left exhaust camshaft position actuator sprocket alignment circle mark with the timing camshaft drive chain link

Align the left intake camshaft position actuator sprocket alignment circle mark with the timing camshaft drive chain link

Install the primary camshaft drive chain.

Wrap the primary camshaft drive chain around the large sprockets of each camshaft intermediate drive chain idler and the crankshaft sprocket.

The left camshaft intermediate drive chain idler timing mark will align with a timing camshaft drive chain link

The right camshaft intermediate drive chain idler timing mark will align with a timing camshaft drive chain link

The crankshaft sprocket timing mark will align with a timing camshaft drive chain link

Ensure all the idler sprocket timing marks are properly aligned with the timing camshaft drive chain links

Ensure that the crankshaft is in the stage 2 timing drive assembly position

Install the right secondary camshaft drive chain.

Place the secondary camshaft drive chain around the right camshaft intermediate drive chain idler outer sprocket, aligning the timing camshaft drive chain link with the alignment access hole made in the right camshaft intermediate drive chain idler inner sprocket.

Wrap the secondary camshaft drive chain around both right actuator drive sprockets.
Ensure there are 10 links between the timing camshaft drive chain links for the camshaft position actuator sprockets.

Align the right exhaust camshaft position actuator sprocket alignment triangle mark with the timing camshaft drive chain link

Align the right intake camshaft position actuator sprocket alignment triangle mark with the timing camshaft drive chain link

There will be 22 links between the right camshaft intermediate drive chain idler timing camshaft drive chain link and each right camshaft position actuator sprocket timing camshaft drive chain link.
