Hello everyone,new to site. I have a 1997 2.8 12v car. The timing belt snapped. I've been searching through the posts trying to find out all I can about my Audi. I'm going to install a new belt and to a compression check with my fingers crossed. Just need to clear something up. So I get the big center holes on the cam plates as close to lining up as I can and then loosen the cam sprockets so the cams will freely turn back to zero lash install the belt and the button it all back up. Nothing I have read is really clear about the cams being loose on the front of the cams. Could someone please shed some knowledge on this for me I. Thanks again.
