Time belt replacement question /crank
Hello everyone, I am in the process of changing the time belt which snapped on me. I have removed everything except the crank. I was trying to do the breaking bar technic, placing it by the frame and cranking it. Problem is, it just clicks. My question is, will it crank if I have everything off? It was cranking and turning prior to me removing the timebelt cover and broken belt. Is there a sensor telling the cpu not to crank? I did have to turn the crank a few times to get it at TC. I took the battery to get it checked and it was fully charged and in working order. It just sounds like when the starter is stuck. Any help will be appreciated.
I just want to make sure it turns when I replace the belt. I am planning on getting an impact gun to do it. Just worried its not turning like before.
