Easy solution. No other bolts, just pried from the bottom to get the timing chain cover off. Sometimes the simplest things are even difficult. thanks.

SOURCE: What is the trick to removing the harmonic balancer on a stratus

Theres no trick. It has to be cocked or something from all the pulling. Try tapping it back on, use spraylube on the crank and try again. Good luck.

SOURCE: need timing marks ford ranger

The timing marks are on your timing belt cover. There is a little circle on the bottom right of the cover near the harmonic balancer that you can pop out to see if your distributor accesory gear is in the correct position. The camshaft has a triangle on the inside of the gear that you can line up with this accesory gear. The bottom of the timing belt cover has your timing tick marks and you may have to clean off this rectangular piece that is sticking out on the cover to see the marks. A good timing gun and remembering where the number 1 cylinder on your distributor is a good start to timing your motor. Refer to a Haynes Manual and it will give you a good guide line on how to time your motor with TDC. I hope you have good luck with this!

SOURCE: I need to find the timing (TDC) marks for my 95

There is no way that could happen unless you did not put the woodruff key back into the crankshaft recess and put crank pulley on random!!!

2. loosen the distributor just enough to be able to turn it.
3. look the setting up in the book.
4. start the vehicle the turn the distributor until the line lines up with your chalk line at the setting point.

How is the timeing marks r aline 19992.5 ford ranger


At the front of the engine you will find a pulley that will drive the belts to run the water pump, alternator, power steering pump, air conditioner, etc. This pulley is called the 'Harmonic Balancer' and is actually 2 pieces pressed together on a rubber bush which acts as a 'shock absorber' for the engine. This pulley is marked with several lines to indicate the position of the engine rotation, measured in degrees. The longest line usually indicates TDC (Top Dead Centre of piston No 1). The other lines indicate where ignition should fire (Usually between 5-10 degrees before TDC) and where valves are opened and closed (before and after TDC) both ignition and valve timing vary depending on engine/camshaft configuration. The lines on the harmonic balancer will align with a pointer that is cast into the timing cover.

How to line distributor shaft when replacing ignition control module on a 1991 ford f150 v8 truck


Set the engine to the number one compression,and bring the timing mark to zero on the harmonic balancer.(or just bring the timing on the harmonic to zero). mark to match the plug wires to cap,remove the cap.(if you can remove the cap without removing plug wire) mark the rotor position to the engine using a scribe, mark the rotor to the distributor, mark the distributor to the engine using a scribe,Take the lock down bolt out and pull out distributor. when you reinstall line up all your marking and check timing.

I have the distributor out of a 2000 Blazer with 4.3L engine. Manual says to line up 2 marks on harmonic balancer with timing marks on front of engine with cylinder 1 at tdc on compression stroke. Can you...


its real simple on the harmonic balancer the outer ring has a line in it on the front of engine there is a timing tab that hangs over the harmonic balancer line up the line with the correct timing degree 4 6 or 8 but to check for compression stroke number 1 piston has to be up and both valves have to be closed hold your finger over the number 1 spark plug hole and have someone tap the key till air blows your finger off the hole line up timing mark on balancer it should be close now you could use a socket on balancer bolt now drop in distributor lining up rotor with the number 1 spark plug wire rotor should point towards number 1 spark plug on engine driver side front distributor wont be all the way down because it has to drop into oil pump shaft just turn engine over with a ratchet on harmonic balancer bolt one or two revolutions and distributor will drop right in to oil pump then install retainer and bolt for distributor then use a timing light while engine cranks to get timing close to start it then time it correctly after it starts

When setting the ignition timing on a 1991 ford ranger 3.0 were dose the rotor need to point, after number one or before number one? the engine is on top dead center


The engine timing markers down on the harmonic balancer/crankshaft pulley should be aligned with the timing indicator on the engine block to "0" degrees when the engine is in the compression stroke for the #1 cylinder, and this is TDC or "Top Dead Center". When something blows out of the spark plug hole that only means that the piston is coming up on TDC, but the crankshaft will still have to be turned until the timing markers are at "0" degrees. You should be sure that you do know how to properly align the timing marks to "0" degrees, and the timing marks must be set at "0" degrees before the distributor can successfully be installed.

Be certain that the timing marks are set at "0" degrees and on the compression stroke for the #1 cylinder, or the timing will be 180 degrees off when you install the distributor. This has to be precise and guessing will not get the distributor properly clocked in so that the ignition timing can be correctly set.

Once you are certain that the timing is set to "0" degrees "TDC", then mark the distributor housing where the #1 position on the distributor cap will be when the cap is installed on the distributor, so that the distributor housing shows a reference mark where the #1 position is, then the distributor should be installed so that the ignition rotor is pointing directly at the #1 position on the distributor housing, or just before the #1 position mark according to the rotation of the ignition rotor. The distributor should be able to turn and point the ignition rotor on either side of the #1 position mark to provide plenty of timing advance or ****** so that the ignition timing can properly be adjusted to specifications after the engine has been started.

Be sure that you follow the proper timing procedure for that vehicle and remove any timing spout connectors that are described in the set timing procedures

Also, be certain that you are actually using the #1 cylinder to set the engine to TDC and to actually time the engine with a timing light. Here is a firing order diagram that should also help to assist you. Let me know if you require any further assistance.

How to time a 2.3 1995 ford ranger


you have to loosen the tension bolt on the distributor and turn it left or right a few degrees while using a timing gun. stop adjusting after the line on the harmonic balancer lines up with the 0 peg. On a side note, being you have a 95 the ecm may control the timing on your vehicle, if it does and your timing is still off your ecm could be bad.

Timing degree nissan sentra


Step1 First step is to open your hood on your vehicle and locate the distributor. Step2 Next loosen your distributor just enough that it will turn from side to side with some resistance. Step3After Loosening the distributor take a piece of chalk and mark on theharmonic balancer the timing mark so it can be seen easily. Step4Then take the timing light and connect it to the battery and the Numberone spark plug wire. Then have your helper start the vehicle while youshine the timing light on the harmonic balance and the timing mark onthe timing chainmag-glass_10x10.gif cover. Step5The Timing Light will illuminate the mark on the harmonic balancer whenthe Number one cylinder is firing. The mark should correspond to thetiming mark on the timing chain cover. You can then adjust the timingforward or backwards by rotating the distributor ever so slightly. Step6 When you have the timing where you want it then shut off the engine and carefully tighten back down the distributor without moving it.

1991 ford ranger need a diagram


easiest thing to do is get the chilton or haynes service manual at auto stores... they break the procedure down to ensure that its done properly, they are really easy to do, you should be fine... TRIPLE check the timing marks on all pulleys before putting it all back together and starting it...
