If you look real close and you might have to clean the gears real good but you should find a small dot on both the cam and crank gears.

Guys I've got a problem with a ford bantam 1.6i 2003 model rocam engine, its overheating even though the cylinder head was skim but it still overheating. please assist!


Check what head gasket was used . I suspect that an after market gasket was used. If that is the case there will be holes in the block and head thet have no matching holes in the gasket thereby causing the problem

I know how to set the timing on an engine but im having a problem setting the distributor after doing the head gaskets on my 98 blazer 4.3, im seeing 2 makes on the damper and im not sure which one is the...


The TDC mark is usually the second one in the direction of rotation. To make sure you have the right mark, if you still have the tappet cover off, number 1 cylinder valves should rock at TDC when you move the crank backwards and forwards.

Please help head gasket has gone on my hyundai tradjet gol gsket kit but no loosen tighten order for the head bolts and icould do with timing marks many thanks from andy


The gasket kit alone is not the answer to your problem. You don't need to worry about bolt tightening sequence, yet. Get the head off, take it to a machine shop, have it surfaced, check the valves, etc, for leaks while you have it off. Then attempt to put it back on. The tightening sequence is in the book you bought to work on the car. Then put the timing belt on, it has marks on it, the cams have marks, and the crank has marks, they all line up, If you don't see any marks on the belt, mark it before you take it off, with a white marker. Then the exhaust, intake, and air , then the water, power, alternator, ac, etc. Then you should be all set.

How to put a 98 cadillac deville in time


Take a finger and place it over the #1 cylinder plughole, after the heads are back on of course, and have some one else turn the key in very quick spurts util you feel the commpression of "that" cylinder against your finger. Do this very slowly and once you feel the pressure you shoul also be able to see the timing mark on the crankshaft very near the timing mark TDC top dead center coming into alignment.At this point just turn the crankshaft mounting bolt with a 1/2 inch drive ratchet wrench and the appropriate socket until it is on TDC. Then insert your distributor which will turn clockwise. So you have to account for this movement until the rotor points directly at the number 1 cylinder plug wire insert. It is usually marked on the distributor cap on a GM product. Make a small indicator on the ridge of the distributor housing to match the mark.Using a large black marker works well. That's about it. Thanks, Dana

I have seen timing issues with the 95 jetta when your crank and cam marks are off a tooth, when you reset this it will not start. Remove the harmonic balancer and the lower crank sprocket, look for the sheer pin to be missing. replace lower sprocket if sheer pin gone. when set your crank and cam marks and put timing belt on. Tip, there is a timing plug on the top of the bell housing near block, usually green, remove plug . look for mark on flywheel and on tranny. if all three line up your timed correctly. good luck.
