The keyway and or the dot on the crank should be line at 12 oclock. You will see a point on the oil pump housing to go by. On the camshaft the pointer will be at 12 oclock also. Use the O on the camshaft to the top at mark. Be sure to look at the dist. roter to make sure that it is pointing at the #1 spark plug wire. I could get 180 out of time. If you do it right it should start up right away. then you can use a timing light to finish it.
Good Luck email@example.com

the gears of the timing are marked with little indents on the gears and little dimples in the tin behind the gears on the cams and on the bottom gear (crank shaft) there is on the aluminum housing behind it the top is open and on the front side is a lip that only goes a short distance half inch or so and then it has a notch in that lip and goes back to the lip . thats the bottom timing notch . you line up the notch and the marks and its right ... turn the engin over twice and check it .. it should still be the same .. the timing belt needs to be only so tight so dont over do the adjustment .. half an inch of deflection at twenty pounds of presure .. measure it between the rear of the car cam and the tension adjuster .. half an inch should be measured as its more movement then normaly figured as tight i thought .. good luck .. paul in sw idaho
