Timing gear set

Set timing on a 2.4L engine

Posted by on

1 Answer

That is a dual overhead cam engine. On the oil pump housing there is an arrow cast into the housing. Line the arrow on the crank pulley up with the arrow on the oil pump housing, that will set your crankshaft in time. Next you'll need to set your camshafts. This is the procedure for doing that......the exhaust cam gear (nearest the firewall) has markings on it that say "2.4L" on one side and "up^" on the other side. On the left side of the gear is a notch on the tooth. This notch MUST be set at 3:30 and the intake cam at EXACTLY 9:00. Once you've installed the timing belt and you rotate the tensioner to "tighten", the offsetting of the exhaust cam will match up with the intake cam. And presto!!! your timing is now set. Make sure you turn the crank sprocket TWO complete revolutions and verify your timing marks.

How do i set the timing in my 95 sonoma with an older carberated 350 from start without taking timing cover off?


There are two kinds of timing, cam timing, and ignition timing. You don't adjust cam timing, it is set when the timing chain is installed. The timing chain cover is supposed to have a pointer welded to it with marks that line up with a mark on the harmonic balancer. (depending on the year of you engine these marks veri in appearance. Ignition timing is set while the engine is running with a strobe light that is triggered by the number one spark plug. On this engine (if it's stock) around 8-10 degrees BTDC. The ignition timing advances with cetrifical weights inside the distributor as well as a vacuum diaphragm. If either of these fail you will have a performance issue with a lack of power, and acceleration. If you are concerned about the cam gear being worn out yes they do wear out. Chevy made the gear teeth on the cam gear out of nylon to make then quieter, the replacement gears are usually cast iron. If you are thinking about changing the timing gears, the crank gear has to be pulled off with a puller, a lot of guys don't bother since it doesn't wear like the cam gear.

Dodge ram50 1992 swap 2,4L to 2,6L


Greetings!

Yes, the engine mounts and bell housings are the same.
The swap should be straight forward, however be sure to swap all the vaccum controls and emission system from the 2.6L.

Have fun!
Cheers, Jay

99 cavalier engine


I just changed a 2.4 in my 96. I pulled the whole thing because I coudn't get at the converter to flywheel bolts. After reading further, I saw information to pull the trans out through the drivers wheel well without the engine. They removed the starter to access the flywheel bolts to the converter.
I haven't tried it but it would make sense and it does make it a lot easier. Without the trans attached, you wouldn't need to remove the master cylinder or beat the sh-t out of the battery tray to get the think out.
