My Ride: 2002 330ci
New member

Hi guys new here not really sure how this works but I guess I'll try anyway. I recently bought a 02 330ci and 6 months after I bought it the head gasket went out. I've read about all the over hearing problems and I got lucky. The head wasn't warped and the bolts didn't strip out. Boy was I relieved. So I replaced the gasket and bought all the tools for the timing. Some reason I can't get it to time right. Every time it's off. With the cams at tdc and the engine tdc and the main timing sprocket arrow pointing at the surface of the head. I can't get the exhaust timing sprocket to line up to get the torx bolts to go in holes. The splined sprocket always ends up in the way. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for any advise
