    Default vectra cdti camshaft pulley problems

    hi guys, i seem to have a problem with my camshaft pulley, the keyway is casted onto the pulley, theres a slot cut into the cam shaft, but when refitting the pulley the keyway isnt tight in the cam? theres a full tooth of play in the pulley? anyone no which was to tighten it or what the procedure?

    What have you done to get into having the camshaft sprocket off in the first place ?

    I had mine off the other week changing the water pump, mine was a snug fit with no play at all. Does it look damaged in any way? Have you got it the right way up?

    is yours a 120 or a 150? mine is a 150 dont think the pulley has to come off to change pump so u must have a 120? not damaged in anyway even have a new one its the exact same,

    since ive had car ive had camshaft sensor out of range fault showing, have changed cam sensor, crank sensor, checked all wiring, ecu etc, so the last thing to check was the pulley itself,
    thinking i will need timing tools now to get it right.

    Set the timing up and align the camshaft sprocket with the bolt loose follow the instructions as below
    lock the camshaft with a camshaft locking tool (not the one below) and tighten the camshaft bolt to correct torque.

    From the link at the bottom of this post Sealey Tools

    Z19DTH (DOHC) - Fit VS4776 Camshaft Setting Tools

    Camshafts have a 'timing position slot' and are locked in
    timed position by VS4776 Setting Tool, which is spring
    loaded, screws in to the camshaft housing and locates
    into the timing slot.
    Slowly turn the engine in its normal direction of rotation.
    As the ends of the spindles engage the slot in the
    camshafts an audible 'click' will be heard as the springs
    push the spindles into the 'timing slots'.
    IMPORTANT: DO NOT use Timing Tools to hold crankshaft/camshafts in position whilst releasing or tightening the sprocket bolt.
    Setting
    Tools are for retention of timing position only

    This might help what Im trying to explain

    So basically the cam bolt is the last thing to tighten on the re-fitting of the belt.

    DaNm convert to Nm move the decimal point to the right eg: 2.7 DaNm = 27Nm
