Question about 1985 Nissan 300ZX
While replacing the water pump I replaced the timing belt without securing the cams.... They slipped and now how do I find the timing marks to realign everything
The gears of the timing are marked with little indents on the gears and little dimples in the tin behind the gears on the cams and on the bottom gear (crank shaft) there is on the aluminum housing behind it the top is open and on the front side is a lip that only goes a short distance half inch or so and then it has a notch in that lip and goes back to the lip . thats the bottom timing notch . you line up the notch and the marks and its right ... turn the engin over twice and check it .. it should still be the same .. the timing belt needs to be only so tight so dont over do the adjustment .. half an inch of deflection at twenty pounds of presure .. measure it between the rear of the car cam and the tension adjuster .. half an inch should be measured as its more movement then normaly figured as tight i thought .. good luck .. paul in sw idaho
