SOURCE: need timing belt mark diagram for 95 corolla 4afe

malibluert: YOUR IN LUCK! This series engine is simple and the references aren't hard to find. READY???????
IF you are just trying to reset the belt at the top and have not remover the crank pulley, bring the crank around to Top dead center on the # 1 cylinder,. It will read Zero degrees on the timing mark scale.
Up top, look at the cam gear closely You will see that there are 5 spokes which support the actual gear. Look closer and you will see that one of these spokes has a small hole in it about 3/4th of the way towards the outside of the gear. Position the gear to where that hole is at 12:00 PM. NOW, if you look thorough the hole, you should should see a small notch that the hole should be centered on. If not, move the gear until you can look through the hole and the notch falls dead center. At that point in time, you have the crank ant camshaft in perfect time with each other.
When you put the belt on, make sure that the side which is slack is the tensioner side. You should be able to slip the belt on, matching the teeth with the teeth on the gears to where one side is fairly tight and you can not roll the cam counter clockwise.
IF you are replacing the belt, you have the crank pulley off and you position the woodruff key straight up at 12:00 PM and the procedures are all the same other than that. when you set the tension. A good rule of thumb is to find the longest span of belt, and with your thumb and forefinger twist the belt. if it twists to 45 degrees toward the block, it's perfect. Any more or less, needs to be reset.
I hope my answer suffices. A picture wouldn't be any more clear.
Let me know how you did.
NOTE: This engine does NOT bend valves when a timing belt fails.

Setting timing marks to get vehicle to start after engine overhaul

Timing marks setting Corolla 4A-FE.
Align the notch on the crankshaft pulley with the "0" mark on the timing belt lower cover.

With the crankshaft pulley being aligned with the 0 mark on the timing belt cover, the hole on the camshaft sprocket should exactly be in front of the notch of camshaft bracket.

Hope that works.

Need timing marks for 1993 1.6 Toyota Corola camshafts

If its the 1.6litre 4afe. Turn the crankshaft to TDC, ie. Tiny slit on the crank pulley should be straight underneath the 0deg mark. The cams, intake cam is driven off the exhaust cam by means of two gears. Installation marks. They have 4 holes in front of the gears. Front being closest to timing belt. Upon installation one hole in each gear should face upwards and the other holes should face each other between the gears. On the exhaust cam pulley there is a hole drilled through it, ie. timing mark. It should face up. Directly inline with the grove in the first cam cap. If you have 1.6litre 4age engine. Between cam gears and cylinder head there should be a plate. groves in cam gears should face the groves in the the plate.

Both 7afe and 4afe (engines for 93-97 Corollas) are non-interference engines. It's highly unlikely there is any damage to the valves.
