I have this KIA Cerato "Forte" 2010 with an G4FC DOHC 16V 1.6L MPI with a single CVVT on the intake side.
I'm changing the timing chain, tensor and the two sliders, I thought it is a simple procedure but I've come cross this video which say you should unlock the VVT hub then install it and lock it back. is this really necessary ? what I think of it is the vvt hub will get the camshaft to the right position after the engine start despite the initial position relative to the sprocket during the alignment.
also as this hub has been tempered with before "opened" and I couldn't find a replacement part for it is it possible to just eliminate the CVVT by locking the hub "could be soldered" at one position " which should be calculated " and does the injunction/ignition system depend on it or will it adopt to the eliminated hub ?
