SOURCE: instructions for setting the time .1993 toyota pickup 3.0 v6 engine

Please send me your e-mail address; I will send you the complete timing proceedure; the file I have is a .pdf, and FixYa will not let me upload a .pdf to the FixYa site. I suspect that your cam timing is off on the passenger side of the engine. You want the specs for a 93 V6, correct?

SOURCE: timing on a 350 chey engine

take out number 1 spark plug and put your finger as to block the hole ,have a friend bump the starter till you feel air rush out real fast / called the compression stroke when it does stop and look down the top center for timing marks on the pulley and line them up on the timing cover then place the distributor in place as so the rotor is pointing at the #1 piston location, basically the dr. front corner and start there, timing order is 1..8..4..3..6..5..7..2.. now if you get all these in right 1..3..5..7 are on the drivers side front to back and 2..4..6..8 on the passengers bank front to back and the distributor turns clockwise .good luck hope this helps you.

How is ignition timing regulated? Car gets 99 BTDC on ignition timing and failed SMOG Test in CA. Listed as GROSS POLLUTER.


something wrong here
with 99 degrees btdc it will not run
have you got it on the correct plug lead
next the timing is regulated by centrifugal advance if electronic or points and by the crankshaft position sensor if ECM controlled ( some after market distributors that are used in place of points units have a small sensor in the distributor that can adjust the timing according to engine rpms, but it cannot make allowances for mixture and so they can advance the timing but not take into account anything else which sometimes results in detonation under certain throttle settings
so initial setting for most cars is 10-12 degrees btdc at idle and with engine rpms set up to 3000 rms it may advance to 25-30 degrees depending on the advance mechanisms
with ECM units the timing is controlled by the crank position sensor and is set to parameters according to engine rpms and air/fuel ratio settings but it still has a basic 10-12 degrees btdc on starting
to fail smog tests you probably do not have a working cat converter and other problems besides timing

How do i set the camshaft timing on wb holden one tonner 1984 model 308 engine?


The cam timing to the crank timing is a bit tricky, it's 9 links from TDC to setup the cam from the oil pump, I suggest you go to your local mechanic and have him set it up, this is something you don't want to stuff up

Need tune specs on '89 5.7 GMC


Spark plugs are set at 0.035 inch.
Ignition timing is set at 0 degrees BTDC. The computer then controls the timing from there. There will be a wire that you unplug before you set the timing, then once you have verified that the timing is at 0 degrees, then reconnect the wire and you're done.

What degree should the 65 xp falcon 200 super pursuit motor ignition be set at


the degrees advance will be 10 degrees on the crank pulley. Loosen the distributor clamp so that you can turn the distributor . Set the points to the point gap. Place the pulley timing on 10 degrees . Turn the distributor in the direction of rotation until the points are closed . Turn on the ignition and advance ( turn against direction of rotation) the distributor until you hear a click. If you have the coil lead out of the coil when you hear the click you will get a spark from the HT lead. Lock up the distributor clamp at this point and you will be spot on timing. On most engines the recommended advance setting can vary a little so you may be able to advance it just a bit to make it run better . Use a light to check for how far advanced you are. A max of 12 degrees will be allowable.

Timing problm


engine timing could be off.for the mercedes benz inline 6 cylinder ignition timing 7 - 11 degrees before top top dead center with idle set speed 650- 700 rpm. make sure engine tuned up before adjusting ignition timing.replace spark plugs and wires,replace distributor cap and rotor.change fuel filter and air filter and clean fuel injectors.if engine still stall out have fuel pressure checked should be 77 - 80 psi. if your car have the EZL CONTROL UNIT ADJUSTS TIMING AUTOMATICALLY NO ADJUSTMENT IS POSSIBLE.

91 firebird 3.1 v6, if timing is set at 0 degrees instead of 10 degrees btdc would it cause strong exhaust and carbon on plugs


Here is the procedure for setting the timing:
1991-92 Vehicles

See Figure 2
When adjusting the timing, refer to the instructions on the emission control sticker inside the engine compartment. If the instructions on the label disagree with the procedure listed below, follow the instructions on the label.
  1. Locate the timing marks on the crankshaft pulley and the front of the engine.
  2. Clean off the marks and coat them with white paint or chalk, if necessary, so that they may be seen.
  3. Run the engine until it reaches normal operating temperature, then shut off the engine.
  4. With the ignition OFF , connect a tachometer to the distributor, and the pickup lead of an inductive timing light to the No. 1 spark plug wire. Connect the timing light power leads according to the manufacturer's instructions.



WARNING Never pierce a secondary ignition wire in order to connect a timing light. A pierced wire may lead to engine misfiring and driveability problems.

  1. Start the engine. With the engine running at normal operating temperature and all accessories OFF, disconnect the EST bypass connector.

An ECM code will be set when the EST bypass connector is disconnected.
  1. Aim the timing light at the timing mark. The line on the balancer or pulley will line up with the timing mark. If a change in timing is necessary, loosen the hold-down clamp bolt at the base of the distributor. While observing the timing mark, rotate the distributor slightly until the line indicates the correct timing. Use the timing specification on the emission control label in the engine compartment. If this label is missing or damaged, refer to the Tune-Up Specifications chart in this Section.
  2. Tighten the distributor hold-down bolt and recheck the ignition timing to make sure the distributor was not moved when the bolt was tightened.
  3. Turn the engine OFF and remove the timing light and tachometer. Reconnect the number 1 spark plug wire, if disconnected.
  4. Connect the EST bypass connector, then check for and clear the ECM code by disconnecting the negative battery cable for at least 30 seconds.

To prevent ECM damage, the key must be in the OFF position when disconnecting or reconnecting battery cables.

Trying to get timing set i can get top dead center but not sue where sparks plug wire go i know the firing order nothing seems to work htis is on a 1963 ford falcon 170 cid


Here is the firing order diagram for that engine, and the ignition points should have a gap of .025 in. or a 35 degrees dwell angle, and the spark plug gap is .034 in., and the ignition timing should be set at 6 degrees before TDC with a standard transmission, and 12 degrees before TDC with an automatic transmission. If the distributor was removed then it will have to be installed correctly, and let me know if you require any further assistance.

IT IS MISSING iVE REPLACED THE PLUGS


Misfiring Escort...
THE Guide!
1- check HT leads, including the main lead from the coil. pull one off at a time and see if there is any difference in engine noise, if a lead makes no difference to the engine note when you pull it off it is broken and you need a new lead for that plug - best to replace a full set since the others will be on their way out too. try each plug and check the leads like this with the engine running, 2- clean/repace distributor cap and rotor arm if it is dirty or corroded, there are 2 Clips, one on either side of the distributor cap, pull em off, take the distributor cap off, look inside the cap, there are 4 pins, are they all corroded and covered in white stuff?, they should be shiny brass, clean them up with fine wet and dry sandpaper, make them flat and shiny again. also still on the distributor is the rotor arm, pull it off, it may need a bit of wiggling - clean this up the same with the wet and dry, get a very fine grade of wet and dry sandpaper since you want the metal to be as smooth as possible afterwards, once the cap and rotor both have shiny metal clean them with mild detergent, rinse and dry them fully, not only to clean them of dirt and grime but also the metal filings from the sanding are "bad" for the distributor.. once dried refit the rotor arm (it only goes on one way, do not force it) refit the distributor cap, make sure its the right way round (make a note of its position BEFORE you remove it) 3- check if air filter is blocked and replace it if it is very dirty - if you think it is blocked try running the engine without the filter and see if it runs better, you know for sure you have a bad filter if this is the case. 4- check fuel filter (especially on 1.0 and 1.3 engines) for blockage and fuel line for blockage (replacement costs £3.50-£5 or so)
apart from that its "experience required" jobs like setting the ignition timing - just get a normal tune up after you've checked out the leads and dizzy/rotor arm which is quite cheap on an escort, you only turn the dizzy and move 1 screw...
Just for reference in case i have misjudged you're ability and you want to try tune it yourself... 1989 MK4 Ford Escort ;-D you didn't give CC so you'll get all engine data for 1989! (petrol)
NOTE: the CVH engines have hydraulic tappets so no adjustment is possible and no data is given. ---------------------------------------------
Escort 1.3 "HCS" 1988-1990 1297cc Valve tappet clearances - Inlet --- 0.20mm - Exhaust 0.32mm Firing order 1-2-4-3 Idle speed - 700-800RPM -
750RPM is optimal idle but anything between 700-800RMP is acceptable.
Ignition Timing- 15 Degrees before top dead center at idle RPM
Spark Plugs : Motorcraft - AGRF22 Champion - RS9YC Spark Plug Gap - 1.00mm (check it is right or it will misfire...)
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Escort 1.4 (1392cc) "CVH" - 1986-1990
Firing Order 1-3-4-2 Idle speed 750-850RPM, 800 being optimum _____ NOTE: This engine requires premium fuel (97 Ron) or it will run poorly - damage may result from using low grade fuel. ----------------------------
Ignition Timing - 12 degrees BTDC at idle RPM. Spark plugs - Motorcraft - AGPR22C Champion - RC7YC Spark plug gap 0.75mm (check this)

----------------------------------------------------------
Escort 1.4i Catalyst - 1.4 "CVH" 1392cc 1989-1990
Idle RPM 850-950RPM 900RPM Being optimum :This engine needs only regular unledad 95RON
Ignition timing - 8 to 12 degrees BTDC 10 degrees being optimum Spark PLugs - Motorcraft - AGPR22C1 Champion - RC7YC
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ford Escort 1.6 "CVH" 1596CC
Firing order 1-3-4-2 Idle speed - 750-850RPM - 800 being optimal Ignition Timing - 12 degrees BTDC at 800 RPM Spark Plugs - Motorcraft - AGPR22C Champion - RC7YC Spark Plug Gap - 0.75mm (check it!)
NOTE :This engine will run on regular fuel (95 RON) but the timing should be set to 8 Degrees BTDC at idle RPM for this fuel.
------------------------------------------------------------
FORD ESCORT 1.1 - 1989-1990 - 1118cc "HCS"
Firing order 1-2-4-3
Idle speed - 700-800RPM 750 Being optimal
This engine runs on regular or premium fuel without adjustment
Ignition Timing - 10 degrees BTDC
Spark Plugs - Motorcraft - AGRF22C1 Champion - RS9YC Spark Plug Gap 1.00mm (check this!)
-------------------------------------
So check your spark plug gaps with feeler guages if you don't have a feeler guage they're less than a fiver at a cheap motor shop - even pound shop and market stalls sometimes have them.
Apart from that lot - these cars can run bad if the battery is weak, they chug like hell on a half charged or failing battery, so make sure the battery is strong too...
The carburettor jets could be clogged or worn... Inlet manifold could be leaking?
Check the low tension wiring (the wiring on the ignition coil, the two round plugs that puch onto the coil) one red and one green/black/stripey/somethin - trace these two wires around the engine bay and check them for damage and loose connections.
Thats all I can think of right now tell me how you get on, I KNOW these cars... I'll go step by step if you need help checking everything/replacing whats wrong,
------------------------------
Good luck.
