1995 Nissan Hardbody XE Shortbed. 4 cylinder, 2wd, 5 speed. I would like to set the ignition timing on my truck. The marks on the driveshaft pully are not hard to find, but I can't find anything on the engine to line the marks up with. Is the engine missing a part.

Re: Can't fine an arrow to line up timing marks.
Hi. The older style engines had a metal arrow on the front timing cover. The newer ones may have a small raised area on the timing cover. It might be best to spray the area down with a can of brake kleen and then wipe the area down with a rag.

Without investigating the wiring diagram, my first guess would be a broken wire or bad connection. It is possible that these fuses are fed via an auxiliary supply and that this supply is not being triggered if coming through a relay/operating device.

place the timing mark on the crank pulley at the correct ignition timing mark (10 degrees advanced). Place in the distributor so that the rotor button points to no1 cylinder in the cap. when fitted in properly turn the distributor so that the points are just opening. ( you can get this by turning on the ignition and when you see the points spark or hear a spark click then lock the distributor up at that point . Use a timing light for final set. If it wont start you got it on 180 degrees out then just move the HT wires around 180 degrees. If you have a transistorized ignition then when the point of the cam star is directly opposite the magnet point that is the same as the points.
Basically the timing chain in every vehicle is set up on the following principal No 1 cylinder is at TDC on compression stroke " meaning both valves intake and exhaust are closed and the ignition rotor should also be lined up with No 1 ignition lead . On the timing chain sprockets there will be a mark on each that align or point to each other and u fit as such. As long as u make sure your on no 1 cylinder compression stroke and cyl is at top dead centre then line up the sprockets u'll be sweet
With the vehicle sitting still, ease the clutch out just a little bit while trying to engage reverse. If it pops in, even with a little grinding, it seems the bearings on the counter shaft may be a little stiff. Have you checked the level of the gear lube in the transmission?
