Sorry if this has been covered before, but can anyone speak to rotating the crankshaft independent of the camshafts. I was following instructions trying to find TDC on #1 with the old belt on and rotating crankshaft by hand using pully bolt. Got about 1/2 turn or so in and realized the belt wasn't moving the camshaft sprockets. Apparently it was stripped out behind crankshaft sprocket and I didn't notice. So without knowing exactly how far I moved one without the other, and given this is an interference engine and I'm not super knowledgeable about the inner workings of my motor, what do I have to do to safely line crankshaft up with cams so no valves strike piston head, and find TDC of #1 from there (that I can do, but am afraid to move things anymore until someone smarter than me chimes in. Thanks again!
