Yes be sure the number one piston is at TDC firing stroke or compresson stroke and line up the timing mark pointer is pointed at exactly zero. One more thing when aligning the camshaft sprocket or sprockets be sure that when you are rotating the sprocket for the cam it is rotating in the correct direction and also be sure you observe the intake valve for number one shutting as you bring the marks up to alignment points, the intake valve and the exhaust valve should be shut when the marks line up if not you could have the cam sprocket off 180 degrees, get it right the first time or you may damage a valve trying to start.

Chevy 2.8 1993 s10' timing chain and gears installing


Replacing the chain and gears requires removing the water pump, dropping the oil pan, removing the balancer and timing cover. Rotate the crank so the dots on the cam gear and crank gear line up at the 6 and 12 o clock positions respectively. Unbolt the cam gear and remove it and the chain. If you need to remove the crank gear you can use a three jaw puller or something similar to pull it off. Reinstall the crank gear lining up the gear with the keyway on the crank and press it on with the appropriate tool. Install the cam gear with the chain and make sure dots line up again. It may be necessary to remove the valve covers and rocker arms as well to rotate the cam shaft if need be.

How to set the timing chain on a 1995 nissan maxima


There are marks on each cam gear and on the crank gear, there are pointers or marks on the engine castings right by each gear, these all have to line up perfectly, there should also be a tensioner for the chain or belt. do not attempt to start the enging if they are not lined up, it is an interference engine and will damage the valves if the engine is out of time, check a repair manual for pictures of the marks to be sure

Where us my 1996 chevy v6 C1500 pickup timing chain located. I need the area and schematics; as i dont know where to start /


the timing chain on the 4.3 is on the front of the engine. you will need to remove the water pump and the crank pulley to access the timing chain cover. You can see the cover if you look behind and above the crank pulley. the cover will be held on by about 15-20 bolts.

make sure you line up the timing mark on the cam gear with the timing mark on the crank gear. there will be a dot on each. when the are lined up the dot on the crank pulley will be at 12 oclock and the dot on the cam gear will be at six oclock.

you will need a puller to remove the crank pulley and the crank gear. Other than that its just nuts and bolts.

Im putting timing chain on my 93 chevy s10 pickup 4.3 and there are gears behind the timing chain what do I do


first thing i would do is make sure your timing marks are lined up before removing the chain and gears,,,turn it over by hand till they line up then remove the bolts in the cam and pull off the cam gear and chain,,you will probably need to use a prybar to get the bottom gear off,,,line up your timing marks and istall the new gears and chain
