On your engine, you will need to removed the first spark plug on the drivers side of the engine. (if you are looking at the engine from the front, it will be your right side) Next, have someone "bump" the key as if you were trying to start the engine while holding your finger over the spark plug hole. When air is forced out of the spark plug hole, stop and check the crank shaft balancer for a small groove. It should be lined up the the make on the front of the engine. That will have you a tdc and you always use the number one cylinder to set the timing on you truck. If you need more assistance let me know.

Timing mark on pully


the timing marks are on the timing cover housing at the top of the crankshaft or just slightly to the right . They are a series of raised marks going from TDC to 5-10 degrees advanced (BTDC)or 5-10 degrees retarded ATDC. The timing mark is a small groove in the inner flange of the pulley. Slowly turn the crank until you see/feel it . For better observations with the light paint the groove with white paint.

On my 1991 mercury capri turbo 1.6 put new timing belt on still wont start my question is. does it matter which way the cams go other than lining the timing marks up


The cams make 2 complete rotations for every 1 rotation of the crank so you could be out of time by 180 degrees.With the valve cover off turn the engine over by hand. As #1 piston comes up on TDC the intake valves should be open and starting to close. As you go past TDC the exhaust valves should start to open. If this is not what is happening in this order then your timing is off. Your engine should be at TDC when the timing marks are lined up with the marker on the engine. Hope this helps.

Where are the timing marks on the timing gear and chain?


This is A 4.3 there on the front of the gears drectly under the teeth it looks like someone started to drill a hole in the face of the gears one on each gear . If this engine is a 4.3 then # 4 cylinder needs to be lined up at TDC or the top of the compression stroke not # 1Then line the marks up in the middle cam gear down and crank gear up also the timeing is not adjustable at the distubtor shaft the computer completely controls this funtion so the gears have to match perfictly

How to replace timing belt on a 1991 plymouth lazer 2.0 turbo


If the belt has broken, the valves will be bent. This is an interference engine and there is no escaping it, the head will have to come off. It is not an easy job, belt access is poor, and there is a balance belt as well. Unless you have a lot of experience and tools, I would not recommend attempting this at home.

We changed the intake gasket and now the Jimmy won't fire,


Get #1cylinder up to TDC (at timing marks on pulley) on compression stroke, and your distributor rotor should be pointing at the plug wire tab on cap for #1 .
