Trying to correctly align camshaft chain, using the attached diagramI have cranckshaft at TDC (Top Dead Center) and exhaust camshaft (left on diagram) at the mark (hole on belt pulley lines up with red dot behind)However, on the exhaust camshaft (left on diagram), there is a line cut into the CWT box on the top.....but on the back side on the chain sprocket (shaft side) there is a half-circle cut out on the sprocket just below teeths.On the intake camshaft sprocket (right on the diagram) , there is a triangle mark (as on the diagram) , but on the back side (shaft side ) there is another triangle mark ( 10 teeths away)It seems like Kia/ try to confuse any DIYs!Which marks are correct to use ?
I would go with your instinct and not the picture. Usually diagrams like these are more universal, and you will find small changes here and there. If you got to your crackshaft, you have enough skill to use your judgement over that type of diagram discrepancy.

I just did a valve job on my son"s 2008 Hyundai Accent 1.6L (same as the RIO"s)... The CVT on the intake cam and the exhaust cam have markings on the other side (inside the engine) and if you reverse the image you have (look at the other side of both cams) you will see them... Also look at the first two cam lobes moving away from the chain...They point at each other --> Dave

Camshaft chain position
half of the cylinder head bolts (on the exhaust side) are placed in a very bad location.....underneath the exhaust camshaft needs to be removed to get to them.....this creates a possibility to make a mistake when aligning the chainJust wondering, is this Kia/Hyundai "special" design, or others build engines like this ?Diagram turned out to be totally useless because of confusing marks on both side of sprockets.At the end I just used a common sense approach:Put Cyl1 to TDC (hole on exhaust camshaft lined up with red dot, then made Cyl1 intake and exhaust rocker arm"s lobes to same height (by measuring the distance from the tip of lobes to rocker arm holder. The spring tensioner also a "special" device.....spring inside, and oil flows through some small holes.... it acts as cylinder with some delaysThe top part holds the chain at a fixed distance, the bottom part applies tension.Broken spring = bad quality spring !My problem started with a broken woodruff (retainer clip) on the crankshaft"s, keeping timing belt pulley in position......resulted bent valves !Thank you for all the replies!
