    Default vectra timing belt help please

    Hi, well trying my first timing head gasket change today on my vectra c but having a few problems.

    I lined up all the marks before removing the belt, but for some reason when I removed it, the inlet camshaft sprocket is now out of line and has moved, I have tried adjusting it with my socket but it goes so far the sort of 'jumps' past where my timing marks are if this makes sense lol.

    It will let my spin it so far but just as they are nearly lined up, but then on the turn it jumps past the marks.

    Is it just a matter of I need a camshaft locking tool to hold it in place or have I messed up somewhere ?

    And could somebody please tell me why it jumps after going so far.

    The engine is a z18xe

    Thanks very much guys

    Hmm think I may have made a bit of a mess of this, just checked the crank markings and its about half a tooth out.

    Is it possible to adjust this without the belt on so it line up or not ?

    I know I could pay somebody to come and sort this straight away but I want to learn and do it myself :-)

    Thanks very much
