Timing Belt Oops. Won't start.
2004 MDX Timing Belt replacement.
I did NOT check TDC because I didn't know how. (durrr) Of course, the front cam had moved, but I had paint marked them and the belt before removing it: I put the belt on the bench and very carefully paint marked the new belt (correct side facing up, tooth by tooth). I installed the belt after having a helper push the cams back into position with all marks lined up.
The car does not start...clearly struggling against some compression (re-re-regaahh). I tried that ONCE. It didn't jam up, so I think I'm clear...
I need to know the steps to getting the cams and the crank set to their correct TDC positions. As I understand it's 2:1 Crank:Cam. But I need to know what I need to move "first" so I don't clatter a valve into a piston.
