There should be a mark on the camshaft .If not you are going to have to remove the valve cover,and set the camshaft at its top dead center and recheck the for cam marks and you will find out its there.On the number one cylinder valves,is what you are going to be of concern, on the camshaft there is what you call lobes,On the lobe are what you call a heel and a toe,(the big part of the lobe is the heel and the small part is the toes),The toes should be out board of each other.recheck for cam marks at this time

SOURCE: how do you align the camshaft & crankshaft timing marks 1.9

This is the same as a Ford Escort 1.9, the #1 cylinder should be all the way up. To confirm- the crak shift mark should be on zero which is Crank Shift Center- THe camshift sproket should align with the headmark. Make sure both marks don't move. Align the belt- not too tight , not to loose

The timing could be 180 degrees out you will have to do it all over again. Bring #1 cylinder upto TDC check the distributor rotor arm that it is pointing to #1 plug wire, It is important that the cams are on the intake stroke and not on the exhaust stroke. The crank is no big deal just make sure the marks are lined up.

I am in the middle of replacing the timing belt on a 05 honda odyssey touring, before removing the old belt, the manual is saying to turn the crankshaft pulley to its white mark [which i can see] lines up...


Remember that for every rotation of the cam there two rotations of the crank. Rotate the crank a further 360 and bring the piston to TDC and the white mark should now align on the cam.

How do set the timing on hyundai excel 1998


Hi,


It seems you are encountering problems trying to set the timing marks in your elantra,not to worry,simply follow the stepwise solution below;
Ensure timing marks aligned [6] & [7] .

STEP 1. Fit timing belt in anti-clockwise direction, starting at crankshaft sprocket. Ensure belt is taut between sprockets.

STEP 2. Slacken tensioner pulley bolt [8].Push tensioner pulley firmly against timing belt to tension belt.



STEP 3. Tighten tensioner pulley bolt [8] . Tightening torque: 43-55 Nm.


STEP 4. Except Matrix: Turn crankshaft one turn clockwise.



STEP 5. Matrix: Turn crankshaft two turns clockwise.


STEP 6. Ensure timing marks aligned [6] .


STEP 7. Apply a load of 2 kg to belt at .Belt should deflect 4-6 mm. If not Adjust position of tensioner pulley.



STEP 8. Install components in reverse order of removal.


STEP 9. Tighten crankshaft pulley bolt [2] . Tightening torque: 170-180 Nm
(7) is timing mark on cam,pin mark to top,hole in spoke below pin mark lines up with mark on head (6) is crank timing mark,pin mark on crank lines up with markS on block.

NEED TO TIME CAMSHAFTS PLEASE EXPLAIN. THANKS


Flats of all four cams on the ends opposite gears need to be parallel to top of head where cam cover bolts on. Dark links on transmission side of cam gears should line up with pins at 12:00 positions on cams. Dark links on pulley side of gears should line up with marks on intake gears. Dark link on balancer shaft gear lines up with tooth at 5:00 position. Dark link on crankshaft gear lines up at 4:00 position.

Here is a diagram of the pulley side marks.

there isnt marks!the cam pulleys have do nothing with timing!remove the valve cover and see in the other end of the camshafts and find two eccentric cuts!turn the crankshaft to the top dead point on the cylinder 1 the two cuts must be in the same line on the upper or lower side.you need aspecial tool to lock the camshafts and another to lock the crankshaft!this is the timing procedure!now you can change anything you want!note!the cam pulleys are conejointed to the camshafts!no marks no pins no safe pins etc.isnt difficult but complicated simple!

Can someone please tell me the timing settings


You didn't say whether you had a V6 engine or a 4cyl. Here is the procedure for a V6, 3.2L for 1998 - at least 2002.

It sounds like he moved the cam shaft independently of the crankshaft or other camshaft so you will need to do all these procedures:

1. Turn the crankshaft until the mark on the spocket is lined up with the mark on the oil pump housing (the mark is on the driver's side at 90 degrees to the sprocket itself).

2. Back off the crankshaft counterclockwise 1/8 turn to ensure the pistons aren't at top dead center. This gives the valves room to move without hitting the piston.

3. Turn the passenger's side camshaft until it "jumps" into place with the alignment mark on the camshaft pully is pretty close to being lined up with the mark on the engine head.

4. Turn the driver's side camshaft until it "jumps" into place this should be perfectly lined up. If you turned the crankshaft 10 full rotations and it still doesn't line up at any rotation then choose the closest point with the mark off by 1/8 to 1/4 turn off from the mark. Then line it up by hand.

5. The idler pulleys and tensioner pulleys should be installed on the engine but the tenioner pulley adjuster (it is a little cylinder with a rod coming out of it that is held in place by 2 bolts) should be removed.

6. Place the new belt on the crankshaft first. Be sure the arrows on the belt point in a clockwise direction. If you have a belt with lines and dots then the lines will line up with all markings that you have lined up together on the camshafts. The dots should line up at the 270 degree point on the crankshaft (opposite of the lines and the markings). There should be a factory blue dot on the crankshaft where the belt dots should line up.

7. Loop the belt around the tensioner pulley, around the passenger's side cam, under the waterpump, around the driver's side cam, and finally around the idler pulley. Check all alignments.

8. Put the tesioner adjuster in a vise and squeeze it together until you can place a small drill bit or allen wrench through the holes to keep it compressed.

9. If all lines are aligned and the play is removed from the driver's side then this step should be easy. Hold the tensioner pully against the belt and install the tensioner adjuster. Then pull the dril bit or allen wrench to release the adjuster. Sometimes this step can be a bit tricky and you may need some moving of the belt to allow enough play to get the adjuster in place. This may move the passenger's side alignment. If so, you will need to try it again. I find that if you move passenger's side alignment mark clockwise by one tooth of the sprocket, then when you go to put the tensioner in place it lines up. You may find other tricks to overcome this challenge. Remove to remove the drill bit or allen wrench.

10. Once you think you have everything lined up. Use a wrench to turn the crankshaft sprocket 2 full turns. Listen closely and feel for any hard resistance as you do this to determine if the pistons are hitting the valves. If you believe they are hitting each other then repeat the adjustment procedure. Not doing this can ruin the valves or more.

11. If everything seems OK you can try turning the engine over with the ignition. If it doesn't start, don't keep trying. Assume you need to perform the steps again and realign everything.

I hope this helps.

Timing


Hi,
The 3L 24V straight 6 engine has timing marks on the crankshaft pulley & on the camshaft pulleys. The crankshaft pulley aligns with a mark on the front of the block, the camshafts align with two marks on the plastic cover on the top. The ignition timing, the fuel/air mixture & the valve timing are not adjustable. The 3L engine is known as an "Interference" engine, in other words, if the cam belt breaks or is not set up correctly, the pistons 'meet' the valves, with dire consequences!!!!!
