I'm confused… How is it you can build it, but you can't do a timing belt?

I should probably buy the timing tools and familiarize myself with the diesel better,seems
more complicated than a gas engine.I have the vagcom program and have no idea how
to change or delete anything...

Give a man a vagcom program and he will stare at it blankly,
Teach a man to vagcom program and he can tune for a lifetime

I see, said the blind man... you pulled a running engine and just dropped it in.

Yep
Also I got ahead of myself and didn't mark TDC so now the valve cover has
to be removed and #1 glow plug/injector has to be removed and the front
engine mount to get at the front of the engine......

It's not too bad Zook - I don't have a TDC mark on my Flywheel either. The mark on the front timing cover and harmonic balancer will get you close, and then I used a piece of AL filler rod in a GP hole to fine tune the crank position the last time I had the belt off.

For the tools - if I were to do it again I would only buy the tensioner tool, the cam lock, and cam sprocket puller. The cam holder I would make with a few bolts/nuts/ and angle iron. The pump lock pin I would use a drill bit. The crank lock isn't really necessary.

You don't need to pull the valve cover or glow plug to do a timing belt. You take off the vacuum pump and bolt the cam lock in it's place. If it fits your on top dead if not your 180 out. The ALH is one of the easier VW motors to do a belt on. I've changed the one in my 03 twice and once each for the other two cars.

only if you have the special cam lock tool ttat does not require vc removal... most of us have the standard cam lock
