I recently bought a 95 240sx. It needed a clutch and water pump gasket. I wanted to rebuild it so i did. new bearings, pistons, timing set, everything. I put it all together and now the idler gear is turning but the distributor gear on the end does not. i loosen the bolt and everything turns. what is the torque on the bolt? do i need to take the front apart again and replace the gear? i am at a complete loss!

The short shaft that the idler/distributor gears slide onto uses uses woodruff keys which may be missing.

you mean the idle sprocket inner gear wasn't turning? was it oil blockage?

trying to remember how the idler sprocket fits together from memory.
