SOURCE: need a picture or diagram of top dead center/86' honda prelude 2.

From what I see in my manual,

1.There is a Timing Pointer on the back of the engine. There is a White mark on the flywheel. The white mark must line up with the timing pointer, for Number 1 piston to be at Top Dead Center.

2.Facing the engine, looking at the camshaft sprocket. The sprocket has spokes. On one of those spokes is the word, "UP" in raised letters, or there is a small Dot. As you can see here, the spoke with the word UP goes -> Up.
(Same thing of course if it is a Dot, instead of UP)

On the back of the camshaft gear, (Sprocket), are marks. On the edges of the camshaft gear. These line up with the top edge of the cylinder head. The surface of the cylinder head, where the valve cover bolts down to.

I'm sorry, at present I do not have a website, that I could link you to for a diagram, or photo.

SOURCE: Doing Top Dead Center(TDC) before T-belt

It is important that you turn the engine in the correct direction. To achieve TDC firing stroke remove spark plugs insert a plasic straw into the number one spark plug hole and proceed to turn the engine over observe the straw keep turn ing the motor until the straw travels upward when it stops moving up stop turning, you will know you are at tdc by looking at the timing marks down on the crankshaft pulley the notch on the pulley should line up exactly to the number zero on the timing plate at the front lower part of the motor very close to the crankshaft pulley turn the motor over again and again until you line up the notch on pulley with the number zero you may need to clean the numbers off on the timing plate or front cover.

Line up the crank gear timing straight up, line up the cam gear timig mark straight down (so the marks are closest to each other, or facing each other). the distributor will be firing #4.

SOURCE: BMW X3 Doesn't Start

Might be as simply as a new battery. Remove battery from vehicle and bring it to a repair shop or Sears Auto Center (they are the battery, and charging system Kings) and have them load test the battery. If battery fails purchase a new battery . Once the vehicle is up and running take it back to them and have them test the charging system and determine whether the vehicle has battery drain .

How the position of the top dead center on the M43 engine


Take off the upper timing cover and disconnect the battery now put a socket on the crankshaft but and rotate engine in direction of travel . there's a mark on the crankshaft pulley and marks on the camshaft sprockets that will be at the top when you are at TDC. That's the basics. Remove spark plugs to ease rotating the crankshaft. Hope that helps

Is it top dead center or bottom


Top dead center and bottom dead center also known as ( TDC) and (BDC) Are two different positions of the piston while an engine is running. TDC is where the piston is as high as it can go in the cylinder and BDC is as low as the piston can go in the cylinder.

Find TOP DEAD CENTER BMW 323I 1999


i find that if you take out the number one sparkplug which is at the front of the engine, put a long thin screw driver in the hole. and out of gear turn the engine over with a spanner on the bottom pulley, get a mate to hold the screwdriver steady, and feel for the piston to rise at the top of its stroke. that is TDC.

I hope its as helped?
