How do i set the camshaft timing on wb holden one tonner 1984 model 308 engine?

The cam timing to the crank timing is a bit tricky, it's 9 links from TDC to setup the cam from the oil pump, I suggest you go to your local mechanic and have him set it up, this is something you don't want to stuff up

Why dose car not start

code p1362 refers to camshaft position sensor (CMP) ---no signal==causes wiring--CMP sensor--ECM programming--ECM
First point -cheap sensors are a waste of time and money as they have to be made with a pre-set range suitable to the ECM in your car. next point --when fitting cam/crank position sensors you have to ensure the correct air gap is maintained . third point ---because it is not set to your CPU program then it is advisable to use a scanner tool to reprogram the CPU to read the sensors fitted. I would advise a change of mechanic as it appears that the advice you are getting is not exactly accurate.

Changing timing belt

You need a Cam Lock tool set for this otherwise you are going to be having a very difficult time with that Variable Exhaust Timing. Amazon sells the kits for about $100+ Shipping but I also advise getting the Timing Pulley Block from IPD to hold the pulleys in place while installing the belt. Do not forget to change your Cam seals at the same time. It is also a good time to reseal the Cam Cover if it is leaking.

P0340 - Cam Timing

of a mistimed camshaft system (all must apply):
  1. Camshafts have previously been removed from the engine.
  2. Engine runs rough.
  3. Vehicle sets P0340 (camshaft sensor code).
  4. Camshaft sensor has been checked with a known, properly operating camshaft sensor.

The diagram in the manuals should show the timing marks on both cam gears to be on the blue timing chain links.

Do i need to redo timing? engine was rebuild but didn't touch the timing belt. however, has problem starting.

How did you manage to rebuild an engine without removing the cam and crankshaft? After doing that, proper cam phasing is essential! Get a manual such as chltons or haynes and follow cam setup instructions, distributor install etc.
Problem starting may be due to improper setup or a mistake or previous problem that existed before you did whatever you did to the engine, so go over everything carefully.
I'm not there, but I'd give the same advise to anyone if I wasn't able to look at it myself!

Well I just looked up the specs for you for the 2.7 ltr. I hope this is what you want.
Cam Caps 105 in.lbs.
Cam Sprocket 250 in.lbs.
Crank Dampener 125 ft.lbs.
Cylinder Head Cover 105 in.lbs.
Here is an illustration of the timing chain set up. Be aware these marks are lined up with the three sets of plated links on the chain. You should easily identify them if you have a new chain. You may have to clean an old chain to see them.
Good luck with this and let me know how it goes for you.

Tdi components in a 2.0 xflow

You are probably better off using aftermarket gear meant for the car. Remember that a diesel uses extremely high compression ratios (as high as 17:1), and that is created partially by the head's deck height and combustion chamber dome, and partially by the rod length. Very high compression ratios are not desirable for a turbo engine unless it's extremely fine-tuned (by a pro on a dyno, using standalone mapping to set up all the individual timing and fuel maps for partial throttle vs full throttle activation, boost-dependent timing ******, etc). Trying to piece together a high compression turbo setup and controlling its operation with an off-the-shelf turbo chip is a recipe for mulching the internals of your engine. As far as valve springs and retainers, it'll depend on the size of the valves relative to the size of your engine's valves, and the cam would definitely be wrong to use - diesels are designed for large amounts of low-end torque and a low rev limit, whereas a gas turbo engine depends on higher RPM for spool and power production. The lobes of a diesel cam are optimized for low-end operation and won't run well at higher revs (since they were designed for an engine that will never see those higher revs - the diesel will hit redline shortly after the RPM point at which the gas engine really starts to build boost). You may even find that the OEM cams are fine for use on a turbo setup - usually it isn't until you really start pushing that you NEED cams. Even the stage 3 kit from C2 that I've seen uses OEM cams, and that's set up for a base tune close to 500hp on the VR6 (not your engine, but still, making 500hp on an engine that was designed at 170ish hp, and still using stock cams, shows the potential for high-end breathing of OEM gear). I'd do the turbo setup and get it working great, and then start upping the boost and upgrading further components, like the cams, as needed.

Keep in mind too, that building a turbo setup, you're not going to want to use used internals, and the price of OEM tdi internals is likely to rival the cost of aftermarket parts - you are better off going with the aftermarket parts that are intended for a gas-engine turbo setup, and the additional benefit to that is, as long as you're tuning for power/boost levels similar to the output of the kits from places like C2 or APR, you will probably be able to use one of their in-stock tuned chips and fine-tune with an Apex'i S-AFC as needed.

Setting crankshaft and camshaft timing

with crank pulley white mark on 0 remove both cam pulley covers and verify yellow painted notches are exactly on the T mark cast in the fwd cam bearing housings..IF u find that it ISNT 'in time' then remove tensioner located near crank pulley and very carefully manipulate the L and R cam sprokets to allow belt to removed from cam sprockets only... DoNOT rotate engine without T belt installed .Do NOT turn engine backwards.. ever.. be advised that should the cam timing be off by more than 3 teeth either way serious engine damage will result ..this series of engines utilizes variable intake camshaft adjustment .. This job is not for the american small block specialist of yesteryear.. even an experienced asian tech is gonna have a difficult time with this lexus .. its not quite the same engine the Tundra uses...Lexus only mods befuddle reg toyota techs
