I'm new to Ferrari's (up to now I had only 1960's Porsches) so bear with me. I'm doing the 30,000mi service and am preparing to change the timing belts and tensioner pulleys. I can't find any info on resetting the tension. Should the engine be in a certain timing position (such as 0 degrees)? Should the pulleys be able to be rotated using finger power? Now, the left pulley can be rotated and the right one is tight.

Thanks for any help, Tony

Timing Belts

The service manual covers this pretty well, and I recommend that you get one if you are going to do your own service. Basically, though, it states that you put the belts on at TDC #1, rotate the engine twice in the direction of rotation, and tighten up the tensioners. Pretty straightforward. -Steve

I have the workshop manual but didn't find that detail. I'll look through it again. I have downloaded the version from ferrarilife.com and will see if it is a different version than I have.

Thanks, Tony

Found it. On #1 at TDC the tensioners when unloaded release to the correct tension automatically. Just tighten the bolt and it's done.

Much thanks, Tony
