Question about 1989 Isuzu Pickup 2WD
Getting fuel, valves set, getting fire, new wires, plugs and rotor, and cap, also timed, problems started when I had head reworked, enging has 186, 000, miles, it still won't start, maybe you can tell me what can be the problem, engine was running good, before I did all of this.Thanks, Mr.Michael Thomas
Did you sync up the engine properly when you reinstalled the timing belt/chain? It is possible to be on the marks and be 180 degrees off. Align the timing mark on the crankshaft then check the rotor position.If it doesn't point to number one wire terminal position roll the engine over until the crank lines up to the timing mark again. The distributer needs to be pointing the wire terminal that goes to number cylinder.Any other position is unacceptable and you can't simply turn the distributer to number one either You need to retime the crankshaft to the camshft making sure that the distrubitor points to number one and both valves for number one cylinder are completely closed.
