It's definately going to cause a problem. I have a few spares if you need one, PM me. The timing marks on the cam pulleys line up with the notches on the backside of the timing covers.

I knocked one of the teeth off of the center timing belt sprocket while taking it off. Would this alone affect the sensor and cause the engine not to start?
Also, please give me a definitive answer on how to line up the camshaft pulleys and the main center sprocket (referred to in question 1) to set the timing correctly.
I am a newbie, and any help would be greatly appreciated. This site has helped me alot in this process.
