Default 1999 Camry crankshaft pulley bolt

Is it 19mm or 20mm?

Can't find the specs anywhere...

I'm not sure, but I have a bunch of mechanical and electrical
diagrams/instructions from a 1997 Camry that I don't own anymore. I
can e-mail them to you if you wish and you can sift through them.

Yes please! m r d a r r e t t [at-symbol-thingie] g m a i l . c o m

In the meantime I figured it is 19mm, but rather than go to the store, I found that 19mm is 0.748 inches, close enough to 3/4 inch... which I happen to have!

Assuming it's a 4 cylinder, Looks like this guy used a 3/4 inch SAE
socket.. probably a 6 point socket, so a 19 mm. If you're changing the
timing belt there are some good videos on youtube also.

Thanks! I'm on Day 4 of the Water Pump/Timing Belt adventure. Water pump failed catastrophically, and I think the timing is off too since the car won't start.

I just noticed something. My fuel gauge dropped from 3/4 to 2/3. I didn'tdisconnect the battery because I really need to listen to music while working on the car, and I noticed this morning I had left the keys on ON instead of ACC (to power the windows, and forgot about that). Would the fuel pump have continued to pump fuel into the cylinders? Would it evaporate on its own or...?

The fuel pump wouldn't run except for a couple of seconds when you
fist turn the key to on, it doesn't start running again until the engine
starts. The fuel gauge on my 98 Toyota... takes forever to get down to
a half tank then moves down much faster... in other words they aren't
that accurate. No way the fuel will evaporated if the vapor control
emission system is still original and working properly. Make sure you
get the crankshaft bolt back on TIGHT but don't break it ... if you have
anyway of holding it from turning I'd sure use a torque wrench on it.
When I did mine the harmonic balancer came off without having to use a
puller which surprised me. ... The Y bracket, it helps a lot if you
have a helper to hold it while you get the first couple of bolts started
and don't forget the hidden 12mm bolt. I'd suggest reading some of the
Toyota forums if you haven't and watch the youtube videos. The timing
belt must be exactly right when you put it all back together. If the
engine over heated ... not good, you might want to go ahead and try
retorquing the head bolts to try and prevent a blown head gasket.

Oh ok, great!

I figured it's because the fuel tank is kind of cone-shaped...

Same here! Didn't need to use the harmonic balancer I'd borrowed from autozone.

Doing that now.

I got everything taken apart... replaced the (destroyed) water pump, even the tensioners. Using the old timing belt to get everything into position, then I'll use the new one (no point stressing out the new one prematurely).

I've got a couple of problems:

1. I'm not quite sure what mark to align to on the CAMshaft. There's a circle impression, and a slit about 45 degrees from that circle.

2. I turn and turn, but get no compression at all from my compression gauge! Then again, it looks like the borrowed gauge has a bad O-ring. That needs to be replaced, huh.

2b. It *is* a non-interference engine (5S-FE, 4-cylinder 1999 Camry), right?

I know! My worry is confusing TDC with Exhaust stroke (180 degrees out of phase). Oh, and figuring out where exactly that camshaft mark is...

It didn't... car made it maybe one block before making REALLY loud noises...stopped the car, noticed a puddle on the ground, and turned right back home before the T-stat even knew the car was warm...

Thanks!

Hmm, I took the timing belt off again, and aligned the CAMshaft to the 11:30pm position (it snapped into place; it was as though the lobes were happy to be at one of four positions, and this was one of them). It was the SLIT mark (not the circle).

Also read somewhere online that it's supposed to be the 11:30pm position, not the 9:30pm position...

Going to get that compression tester O-ring swapped out...

yes the engine is noninterference. you can put the plugs back in the
harmonic balancer back on and run it for a little bit. Then remove the
crankshaft pulley and put it all back together just to test it a bit.
This has a good explanation of where the timing marks are and how
they must be when the belt is on.
http://www.toyotanation.com/forum/10...-part-2-a.html
from the article .. With moderate tension in the timing belt between
the camshaft and the water pump, align V notch in camshaft seal
housing with hole in camshaft pulley. If you look at the right hand side
of the mirror, near the edge, in the above photo, you will see a round
indentation. That is NOT the mark you want. The one you want is the "V"
shaped notch.
