from an autodata publication that is used by most accredited repair shops , there is no timing marks as such for the cam shafts but a plate that has to be positioned exactly
I strongly recommend that you get a workshop manual and follow it closely as the fittment of the belt is not a straight forward job
Also it is an intereference engine which means that in the event of a belt breaking , valve damage is an almost certainty
according to autodata belt replacement guide , there are no timing ,marks on the cam gears
it require special tools and a good knowledge of mechanics to do the job so I strongly recommend that you get a workshop manual before starting on the job
I could type it all for you but with only two fingers , I would be here until next week as the directions are involved and you will need diagrams to full understand the procedure
that is why I suggest a workshop manual
the procedure is not as you would expect as on other engine makes and need to carefully followed
the marks on the cam shafts are directly vertical at the top in line with a mark in the back of the housing the balance shaft timing mark is at 9 oclock position
the crank shaft timing mark is at 10 oclock position ( lining up with a pointer) and the oil pump mark is also at the 10 oc;ock position lining up with a pointer
( to check the position of the oil pump sprocket remove a plug -shown in the book -and insert .30dia pointed screw driver (5/16 philips ) to at least 2.4 "
if it cannot be inserted to this depth move the oil pump sprocket until it can)
the process of assembly is -:
install the timing belt to the sprockets and pulleys in the following order , retaining the belt to the camshaft sprockets by the use of suitable binding clips ( clothes pegs etc)
oil pump sprocket
exhaust camshaft sprocket
intake camshaft sprocket
to help install the belt the auto tensioner on the lh side should be removed
all of this information will be included in a workshop manual covering lancer engines for the years listed and will also include all tensions for the bolts --If you do not have the workshop manual then it is STRONGLY recommended that you obtain one
information from autodata belt installation manual lancer 2.0 l
timing marks are on the sprockets and pulleys not the belt
if you have replaced the belt you will see where the timing marks are
if not and the engine is running but not well then the timing may be correct and other sensors are at fault
to do the job I strongly suggest that you buy a workshop manual for the vehicle and carefully read the page on belt replacement as it is not an easy job and can cost more money than the belt is worth
the number of teeth is irrelevant
a replacement for the engine will either fit or it is the wrong belt
you go by the position of timing marks on the pulleys against marks on the head and on other pulleys
if you are replacing a timing belt then a workshop manual would be a very good investment.
it is an intereference engine so moving either cams or crank with out a belt in position will cause bent valves
You don't need the timing marks to do this. In fact, my experience is that sometimes, going by the timing marks can confuse the issue and make you go a tooth out. My advice would be to expose the belt and then, using something like tippex (liquid paper) make a thin white mark on each pulley and on a corresponding position on the block or head as necessary so that you can see exactly where they are and how they line up when the belt is on place. Once this is done, remove the old belt and put the new one straight back on without disturbing any pulleys.
Common sense I know, but lets make it clear for anyone else reading this later. Once you remove the belt DO NOT turn the engine over or rotate ANY pulleys. Get the old belt off and the new belt on fast. The number of passing idiots who wander into a workshop and move pulleys or turn ignition keys when you're not looking is amazing and often leads me to the conclusion that somewhere in the world there is an engine parts manufacturer who actually employs people to sneak into workshops and do this, just out of malice!
