Chilton's Manual does not show proper timing diagram
I bought a Chilton's manual ( sealed in plastic ) to help me out working on a 1988 Isuzu Trooper 2 that I recently purchased and it does not correctly diagram the ignition timing marks nor does it identify which vacuum lines to plug while setting the timing. I was wondering if someone could post a diagram that accurately depicts the mark.
Re: Chilton's Manual does not show proper timing diagram
The number one piston is at TDC on the compression stroke when the notch in the crankshaft pulley is aligned with the 0 on the timing plate. and the rotor is pointing at the number one spark plug terminal in the distributor cap. You will probably have to pull the valve cover to find top dead center.

Check and make sure your linkage is not loose if so adjustment may be in need...Advise...Do your self a favor and bye a Chiltons manual for your 1988 Isuzu this manual will do wonders for the inquiring minds even...Hope this helped
Recommend getting a Hames or Chilton manual....this is a tricky task....must be in perfect timing or the engine will not perform an could cause engine damage. Get an assistant who has experience at performing this task. Good luck
The 1998 Isuzu Trooper is identical to the 1996 & 1997 Troopers with the 3.2L V6 motor. Chilton-Haynes have a decnet and detailed manual for this car. It's available on Amazon.com. That's where I got mine!
Hello,you need to remove driveshaft to be able to get to the nut.Remove the nut (MAY BE VERY TIGHT) and pull the yoke or flange as you called it out & you can pop old seal out & new seal in.You may want to smear a tiny bit of grease or vasoline on outside of seal for easier installation & also on the rubber part of seal so itwon't get damaged when you re-install the yoke.Hope this helps.
I would go to www. my isuzu parts.com and view their index. It takes a little getting used to but you can find oiut where a lot of stuff goes and how it connects. Other than that go to a library and try to view a Haynes,Chilton or Mitchell maintenance manual for more specific stuff. If you go to my isuzu parts besure to notice the tabs at the top of each diagram --they will tell you if the diagram is for a 4 cyl, a deisel or the v6. good luck
