    Please can you supply me with the engine code and the cc of the engine. Also is it petrol or diesel and if it is single or twin cam. These engines are interference engines and great care should be taken not to move the crank when the belt is removed.

I think your valves are bent. As you have mentioned, you will have to take off the head and check the head out for any damage. I can not tell you the torque values but I would recommend that you get a workshop manual from either Autodata or Haynes Manuals bothe have websites. You will find all the information you need in these manuals and they will save you money in the long run.

The timing mark i on the flywheel. There is a portal, that may have a rubber plug fitted. You must pull the hoses on the distributor and block them to stop the vacuum advance while you are setting the ignition timing.

If you are trying to fit a belt you need to line up the crank pulley dimple and the camshaft sprocket dimples. The flywheel dimple is advanced about 5°. This pic shows the dimple and the line is the actual TDC.

This is the valve timing procedure here

The popping/stalling suggests you guys got your valve timing wrong when re-fitting timing belt. Remove your cover and double-check your timing marks on cam gear and crankshaft gear. Align you timing marks.

Can not get timing 2 set on my daihatsu hijet there is dots on timing cogs which timing belt runs on on front of motor but no markings 2 set them at car will not fire

Click on the following free direct Link. It has the Timing: Belt and Mark Diagrams for the 1988 Daihatsu Charade 1.0L 3-Cylinder which is the closest to the Hijet. Plus additional Instructional and Directional Diagrams.

Note: the annotated Align Matings Marks located on the engine casing, or the Belt Alignment Marks.
I owned one of these while living in Japan.

Where are the valve timing marks on a 1997 993cc charade

Sorry for the severe delay.
I am personally going back to answer your unanswered question.
I do not know if you still need the answer, but I am going to answer it in case you still do.

Click on the following direct Link. It has the Timing Belt Diagrams with Marks for the Camshaft and Crankshaft that you will need. It also has numerous other helpful diagrams for use.

To answer your direct question: (See Diagram 96F14675 on the Link) The Belt Alignment and Align Mating Marks are the keys.
The Crankshaft "pulley" (actually the Sprocket) has the outer Flange (cover) which needs to be removed to see the Timing Mark.

Again my apologies...
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at!
