Question about Cars & Trucks
Four cylinder? Sounds like you have to much slack on the non tensioner side of the belt. The belt should be tight between the crank and the cam. All the slop should be on the tensioner side before you release the tensioner.

SOURCE: need timing marks ford ranger
The timing marks are on your timing belt cover. There is a little circle on the bottom right of the cover near the harmonic balancer that you can pop out to see if your distributor accesory gear is in the correct position. The camshaft has a triangle on the inside of the gear that you can line up with this accesory gear. The bottom of the timing belt cover has your timing tick marks and you may have to clean off this rectangular piece that is sticking out on the cover to see the marks. A good timing gun and remembering where the number 1 cylinder on your distributor is a good start to timing your motor. Refer to a Haynes Manual and it will give you a good guide line on how to time your motor with TDC. I hope you have good luck with this!

THERE IS A SPECIAL TOOL THAT CAN BE RENTED OR PURCHASED AT YOUR LOCAL AUTO PARTS STORE. IT CONSISTS OF A LARGE OPEN END WRENCH AND A LONG FORK-LIKE TOOL THAT GRABS THE NUTS ON THE FAN SO THAT THE WRENCH CAN LOOSEN THE LARGE NUT THAT HOLDS THE FAN CLUTCH TO THE FAN. I HOPE THIS HELPS. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA AND FOR AN HONEST RATING. P.S. BE SURE TO LOOK AT THE NEW CLUTCH TO FIND OUT WHICH DIRECTION THE THREADS GO. SOME OF THESE ARE LEFTY TIGHTY, SOME ARE LEFTY LOOSEY. GOOD LUCK

Testimonial: "Very Helpful "
The timiing is set by aliging the timing marks on the cam with the timing marks on the crank -- then the belt goes on.
