KA24DE changed crankshaft seal, timing?

So I changed my front crankshaft seal and installed the crankshaft pulley back. My worry is that I might have messed up the timing while doing this job (1st time). I'm able to rotate the pulley without a problem but I'm not sure if there should be any resistance or not? I haven't fired up the engine yet. How do I know if my timing is good/bad? Would I have to take off the valve cover etc?

Your in the right spot on the crank pulley but you need to verify you are at TDC on cylinder #1.
Do this by taking off the valve cover and look at the intake/exhaust cam lobes.
They should be pointing away from eachother, meaning the intake lobe is pointing toward the passenger side and the exhaust lobe is pointing toward driver side.

This should help you. (the first picture of step #3)

I had to do this^ last Friday to my car so I could drive it at GGP this past weekend.
The hardest part for me was stabbing the distributor back in because being off 1 tooth made it run like bawlz.

Was your ka timed up before pulling the crank pulley off? If so, the crank pulley has a woodruff key and it should only go on one way. Changing out a crank seal shouldn't effect timing.

My bad Turbo' I didn't know that ^, but if you pulled off the valve cover and #1 was where I said, you know for sure your good to go as long as your on the compression stroke.

Thanks for the insight. All went well, I was feeling a little resistance which just turned out to be compression.
