What mark on the cam shaft/oil pump should be used to reset timing


If you can't find any information you may have to do it from scratch. Find tdc on crankshaft, find point where opposite cylinder to number 1 (cylinder 4 on inline 4 engine) is 'rocking' ( exhaust closing, inlet opening) at this point you are close, and should be able to find the correct mark. (probably need valve cover off to see cam and valves moving as you carefully turn camshaft) some engines have a balance shaft driven behind the oil pump. If so there will be marks to line up there too. Can be tricky, eg mitsubishi motor, just lining up oil pump mark may not be right, it's not a direct drive to balance shaft. A pin has to be able to insert into a bolt hole on the side of the block, so maybe have to turn oil pump gear up to 3 times to get right position. Sorry not familiar with your motor.

My balance shaft belt broke while I was driving. It stripped some of the teeth off the timing belt and Im pretty sure it jumped time. I need a diagram to show the timing marks and how to get it back in...


see diagrams from autozone.com. Cam sprocket has an "UP" label, but also 2 scribes on the sides to align to upper head surface. The critical part of the job is keeping tension on the side of the belt that is opposite from the tensioner as the tensioner is released onto the belt. The timing marks must be aligned when the job is done.

2bd7a51.jpg
4256a1c.gif To install:

  1. Install the camshaft timing sprocket so that the UP mark is up and the TDC marks are parallel to the cylinder head gasket surface. Install the key and tighten the bolt to 27 ft. lbs. (37 Nm).
  2. Install the crankshaft sprocket so that the TDC mark aligns with the pointer on the oil pump. Install the spacers with their concave surfaces facing in. Install the key. If equipped, install the TDC sensor assembly back into position before installing the timing belt.
  3. Install and tension the timing belt. Use a 6 x 1.0 mm x 25 mm bolt threaded through the cam belt tensioner plate to temporarily hold the tensioner.
  4. Temporarily install the crankshaft pulley and rotate the crankshaft counterclockwise 5-6 turns to be sure the belt is properly seated.
  5. Set the No. 1 piston at TDC for its compression stroke.



WARNING If any binding is felt when adjusting the timing belt tension by turning the crankshaft, STOP turning the engine, because the pistons may be hitting the valves.

  1. Rotate the crankshaft counterclockwise so that the camshaft pulley moves only 3 teeth beyond its TDC mark.
  2. Loosen, then retighten the temporary cam belt tensioner bolt.
  3. If the rear balance shaft sprocket/gear case assembly was removed, perform the following:
    1. If the rear balance shaft was moved, rotate the balance shaft until the 6 x 1.0mm x 100 mm bolt can be installed into the maintenance hole to the scribed line.
    2. Align the notch of the balance shaft sprocket edge with the pointer on the gear case. Install the rear balance shaft sprocket/gear case assembly using a new O-ring coated with fresh engine oil. The balance shaft sprocket should be installed in the TDC position. The pointer on the gear should align with the pointer on the oil pump housing plate.
    3. Tighten the mounting bolts to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).

  4. If the front balance shaft sprocket was removed, perform the following:
    1. Install a suitable and sturdy screw driver or drift through the maintenance hole in the shaft behind the sprocket to hold the front balance shaft.
    2. Install the front balance shaft sprocket and mounting nut. Torque the nut to 22 ft. lbs. (29 Nm).

  5. Make sure the balance shafts and crankshaft are in the TDC position.
  6. Remove the crankshaft pulley, and if removed, install the balance shaft belt drive sprocket.
  7. Install the balance shaft belt, making sure the balance shafts and sprockets are still in the TDC position.
  8. If removed, install the balance shaft belt tensioner and tension the balance shaft belt.
  9. Loosen, then retighten the tensioner adjusting nut to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).
  10. Remove the 6 x 1.0mm x 100mm rear balance shaft holding bolt.
  11. Temporarily install the crankshaft pulley and rotate the crankshaft 2 revolutions counterclockwise, stopping at TDC.



WARNING If any resistance is felt, stop immediately and determine the cause.

  1. Recheck that all of the TDC marks align for both the camshaft and balance shafts.
  2. Loosen, then retighten the tensioner adjusting nut to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).
  3. Remove the 6 x 1.0 mm x 25 mm bolt used to secure the camshaft timing belt tensioner.
  4. Remove the crankshaft pulley and install the lower cover.
  5. Install the crankshaft pulley, lubricate the bolt threads and both sides of the crankshaft pulley bolt with fresh engine oil and tighten the crankshaft pulley bolt to 181 ft. lbs. (245 Nm). Do Not use an impact wrench.

            How do u change the timing belt on a 1990 4 cylinder honda accord?


            Disconnect the wire harness at the distributor.Remove the spark plug closest to the drivers side front tire. Place the palm of your hand over the valve covers empty spark plug hole and have a helper crank the motor over until air pressure pushes past your the palm of your hand. Next, look at the cam shaft wheel and note the direction that the arrow is pointing, the arrow should be pointing straight up IN RELATION TO THE ENGINE not the earth. If it is not, you will need to manually rotate the engine till the cam wheel is infact pointing straight up. Next, Jack up the front of the car and support it with jack stand and remove the front drivers side tire.Next, support the weight of the engine with a floor jack remove the motor mount closest to the drivers side tire To remove it you will need a deep 17mm socket on a heavy duty breaker bar. Next, loosen and remove the power steering belt and alternator belts. To loosen and remove the belts you will need a 10mm wrench and a 12mm wrench. And also a 14mm or 15mm wrench. Next, use a 19mm socket AND an air powered IMPACT wrench to remove the bolt holding on the crank shaft pulley. Next, remove the crankshaft pulley. Next, use a 10mm wrench and/or 10mm socket and remove the bolts holding the plastic engine side cover. Next, loosen the 14mm or 15mm bolt which secures the 2 belt tension wheels. Next, LOOSEN the 10mm bolt that is on the balance shaft tensioner. The balance shaft is the cogged wheel with a small timing mark dot on the side of the wheel. Next, loosen the 10mm bolt on the timing belt tensioner. It's obvious what wheel is the timing belt tensioner. Next, remove the 12mm bolt on the back side of the block (near the balance shaft) a little bit of oil will drip out, this 12mm bolt will allow a long bolt to be inserted into a recessed channel of the balance shaft. This recessed channel is needed to lock the balance shaft in place. A bolt from the air conditioner works great for locking the balance shaft in place. You're basically just pushing the bolt in a hole to keep the balance shaft from spinning.890a27a.jpg Next, remove both the balance shaft belt and timing belt. Then reverse the procedure to complete the new belt installation. EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!!!!!!!!! PLEASE NOTE, the oil pump wheel furthest to the left (closest to the radiator), has a timing mark on the flat face side of the wheel, that timing mark has to be pointing directly to the 9:o'clock position in relation to the engine. The cam wheel has an arrow on the side of one of the "spokes" ...make sure it is pointing straight up in relation to the engine...straight away from the crank shaft. Put the crank wheel on with the arrow pointing straight up to the center of the cam wheel.

            Timming belt broke on 93 plymouth lazer and need instalation directions


            It is recommended that the timing belt be replaced periodically to assure correct engine performance. Because of their composition, timing belts wear over a period of time and mileage. To avoid vehicle break down and possible engine damage, the manufacturer recommends timing belt replacement at 60,000 miles.
            REMOVAL & INSTALLATION1.8L Engine
            See Figures 1, 2 and 3
            1. If possible, position the engine so the No. 1 piston is at TDC.
            2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
            3. Remove the timing belt covers.
            4. Remove the timing (outer) belt tensioner and remove the outer timing belt.
            5. Remove the outer crankshaft sprocket and flange.
            6. Remove the silent shaft (inner) belt tensioner and remove the belt.

            1b23c0f.jpg

            Fig. 3: Timing belt timing mark alignment-1.8L engine

            To install:
            1. Align the timing marks of the silent shaft sprockets and the crankshaft sprocket with the timing marks on the front case. Wrap the timing belt around the sprockets so there is no slack in the upper span of the belt and the timing marks are still aligned.
            2. Install the tensioner pulley and move the pulley by hand so the long side of the belt deflects about 1 / 4 in.
            3. Hold the pulley tightly so the pulley cannot rotate when the bolt is tigthened. Tighten the bolt to 15 ft. lbs. (20 Nm) and recheck the deflection amount.
            4. Install the timing belt tensioner fully toward the water pump and tighten the bolts. Place the upper end of the spring against the water pump body.
            5. Align the timing marks of the camshaft, crankshaft and oil pump sprockets with their corresponding marks on the front case or rear cover.
            There is a possibility to align all timing marks and have the oil pump sprocket and silent shaft out of time, causing an engine vibration during operation. If the following step is not followed exactly, there is a 50 percent chance that the silent shaft alignment will be 180 degrees off.
            1. Before installing the timing belt, ensure that the left side (rear) silent shaft (oil pump sprocket) is in the correct position as follows:
              1. Remove the plug from the rear side of the block and insert a tool with shaft diameter of 0.31 in. (8mm) into the hole.
              2. With the timing marks still aligned, the shaft of the tool must be able to go in at least 2 1/2 in. If the tool can only go in about 1 in., the shaft is not in the correct orientation and will cause a vibration during engine operation. Remove the tool from the hole and turn the oil pump sprocket 1 complete revolution. Realign the timing marks and insert the tool. The shaft of the tool must go in at least 2 1/3 in.
              3. Recheck and realign the timing mark.
              4. Leave the tool in place to hold the silent shaft while continuing.
            2. Install the belt to the crankshaft sprocket, oil pump sprocket, then camshaft sprocket, in that order. While doing so, make sure there is no slack between the sprocket except where the tensioner is installed.
            3. Recheck the timing marks' alignment. If all are aligned, loosen the tensioner mounting bolt and allow the tensioner to apply tension to the belt.
            4. Remove the tool that is holding the silent shaft and rotate the crankshaft a distance equal to 2 teeth on the camshaft sprocket. This will allow the tensioner to automatically apply the proper tension on the belt. Do not manually overtigthen the belt or it will howl.
            5. Tigthen the lower mounting bolt first, then the upper spacer bolt.
            6. To verify correct belt tension, check that the deflection at the longest span of the belt is about 1 / 2 in.
            7. Install the timing belt covers and all related items.
            8. Connect the negative battery cable.
            2.0L Engine
            1990-94 VEHICLES
            See Figures 4, 5, 6 and 7
            1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
            2. Remove the timing belt upper and lower covers.
            3. Rotate the crankshaft clockwise and align the timing marks so No. 1 piston will be at TDC of the compression stroke. At this time the timing marks on the camshaft sprocket and the upper surface of the cylinder head should coincide, and the dowel pin of the camshaft sprocket should be at the upper side.
            Always rotate the crankshaft in a clockwise direction. Make a mark on the back of the timing belt indicating the direction of rotation so it may be reassembled in the same direction if it is to be reused.

            1. Remove the auto tensioner and remove the outermost timing belt.

            Fig. 4: Exploded view of the timing belt and sprockets-1990-94 2.0L engines

            1. Remove the timing belt tensioner pulley, tensioner arm, idler pulley, oil pump sprocket, special washer, flange and spacer.
            2. Remove the silent shaft (inner) belt tensioner and remove the belt.
            3. Remove the crankshaft retaining bolts, then remove the pulley.
            4. Remove the crankshaft sprocket retainer bolt and washer from the sprocket, if used, and remove the sprocket. If the sprocket is hard to removed, the proper puller may be used. If no bolts are used on the sprocket. Use the correct puller to remove.
            5. Hold the camshaft stationary using the hexagon cast between journals No. 2 and 3 and remove the retainer bolt. Remove the sprocket from the camshaft.

            To install:
            1. Install the sprockets to their appropriate shafts. Install the retainer bolts and tighten the camshaft sprocket bolt to 65 ft. lbs. (90 Nm).
            2. Check both tensioner and idler pulley for bearing wear, and replace if needed.
            3. Align the timing marks on the crankshaft sprocket and the silent shaft sprocket. Fit the inner timing belt over the crankshaft and silent shaft sprocket. Ensure that there is no slack in the belt.

            1. While holding the inner timing belt tensioner with your fingers, adjust the timing belt tension by applying a force towards the center of the belt, until the tension side of the belt is taut. Tighten the tensioner bolt.
            When tightening the bolt of the tensioner, ensure that the tensioner pulley shaft does not rotate with the bolt. Allowing it to rotate with the bolt can cause excessive tension on the belt.
            1. Check belt for proper tension by depressing the belt on its' long side with your finger and noting the belt deflection. The desired reading is 0.20-0.28 in. (5-7mm). If tension is not correct, readjust and check belt deflection.
            2. Install the flange, crankshaft and washer to the crankshaft. The flange on the crankshaft sprocket must be installed towards the inner timing belt sprocket. Tighten bolt to 80-94 ft. lbs. (110-130 Nm).
            3. To install the oil pump sprocket, insert a Phillips screwdriver with a shaft 0.31 in. (8mm) in diameter into the plug hole in the left side of the cylinder block to hold the left silent shaft. Tighten the nut to 36-43 ft. lbs. (50-60 Nm).
