Question about Cars & Trucks
I set the 2 sprockets at the notches on the top timing cover and the cranshaft at TDC. I can't get the car to start and seem to have no compression still. I got the cranshaft bolt off but the pulley won't come off so I can see the supposed dimple on the cranshaft. Does anyone have the timing diagram for this 2.9L non turbo because the one's I've seen online so far are different?

slide a straw or a pen into the plug hole and slowly rotate crank pully back and forward and note the rise and fall of the straw this will indicate TDC . once TDC is achieved note the mark on the pully should be alighn with a mark on the timming case .rotor button to number one lead will have you on compression stroke .cheers MAL

Remove the two bolts, the timing chain tensioner and tensioner arm.
NOTE: LH shown; RH similar.
Remove the bolts and the timing chain guides.
CAUTION: Do not compress the ratchet assembly. This will damage the ratchet assembly.
Compress the tensioner plunger, using an edge of a vise.
If the copper links are not visible, mark two links on one end and one link on the other end, and use as timing marks.
If removed, install LH and RH crankshaft sprockets.
Position the tensioner arms and tensioners, and install the bolts.
