Question about 1998 Ford Escort
Slung timing belt / theres no timing marks on cam gears or crank pully or crank gear
Timing mark is on flywheel for crank and on the rear end of the cams under the rocker cover.be carefull with this as the pulleys do not have keyways and can come loose resulting in smashed valves and piston.make sure retaining bols have locktite or better still araldite on the threads and use a impact gun on them.fairly easy job to do though,make sure you remove tensioner though and remove the dust cover and give a little drop of oil and some new grease then push seal cover back on ,saves the cost of a new bearing as these are not cheap.
