Question about 1985 Nissan 300ZX
I found timing marks on the backside of the crankshaft pully and the mark on the front of the cam spocket.. Where do i put those marks.. Also .. why doesnt my timing chain tennsioner push on my chain.. is slips back and alows the chain to smack the housing and even slip timing. Thanx so much for your time..... Signed.. frustrated youngin
The timing chain tensioner is hydraulic and either out of adjustment or defective. You need to remove the timing chain cover and reset the mechanical correlation between the crankshaft and the camshafts. also the other ignition time marks are on the crankshaft harmonic balancer and the cam cover. Do not crank the engine with the timing out of sequence or you'll destroy the engine.
