How to set crankpully on 1989 Ford escort 1.9 liter engine for timing set up


most crankshaft pulleys ( harmonic balancer ) are keyed onto the shaft and held there with a bolt
in that case the timing mark will always be in the right place
otherwise set the no 1 piston on tdc (remove no 1 spark plug and with a bit of light gauge wire move the crank until the piston comes up and then starts to go back down)
the mark on the balancer should be at the tdc mark on the timing case cover

Need to set timing from scratch on 1993 Mercury Tracer 1.9L


On the pulley, they are marks that line up with a mark on the head. That is TDC for the cam. Then set the crank to 0 on the timing marks. Put the belt back on.

4.3 1989 gmc backfires out intake on rebuild, checked everything except lifters


your supposed to line up marks at tdc which is the #1 cylinder all the way up. there should be a tdc mark on the crank. if you did it on #4 you are sparking on the exhaust stroke be careful this could blow a rod very easy.

I REMOVED THE DISTRIBUTER CAP AND AFTER I PUT IT BACK THE CAR REFUSED TO START .


Are all the wires going to the right cylinder? if yes....Did you mark the gearing/rotor location before removing? You may have thrown off the timing for the distributor. If this is the case, Remove the distributor and set the engine to TDC (top dead center). This can be done by spinning the crankshaft pulley/harmonic balancer twice clockwise until the marking on the pulley and timing cover is set to "0/Zero" Once set at TDC, set the distributor (cap must be removed) to TDC/Cylinder 1.

On my 1991 mercury capri turbo 1.6 put new timing belt on still wont start my question is. does it matter which way the cams go other than lining the timing marks up


The cams make 2 complete rotations for every 1 rotation of the crank so you could be out of time by 180 degrees.With the valve cover off turn the engine over by hand. As #1 piston comes up on TDC the intake valves should be open and starting to close. As you go past TDC the exhaust valves should start to open. If this is not what is happening in this order then your timing is off. Your engine should be at TDC when the timing marks are lined up with the marker on the engine. Hope this helps.

Where will I find the timing mark in relation to the camshaft on a Toyota Hilux 3Y 2L engine?


There is no mark. Toyota makes use of 2 different colored links on the timing chain. Get the no 1 cylinder on TDC. Align one of the 2 different colored links on the chain with the mark on the crankshaft cog. Aligh the other different colored link with the mark on the camshaft.

Putting on timing belt .


The crank has got to be at TDC, with the marks lined up, the cams have to be lined up to their marks, then the belt will line up, If it doesn't line up, You will be walking home. If you have the old belt handy and the marks are still visible, compare them to the new belt, make sure they are the same. Pull the pin on the belt tensioner and you should be all set. Hope this helps.

What is the distributor timing mark for 89 chevy


Is the vacuum hose removed from the dist when the timing is being checked?
Are you connected to the first plug wire (closest to the rad) on the drivers side?
If this is being done.....remove the cap and rotor and check the springs on the mechanical advance,the advance should be tight to the shaft and springs tight.
I would set the base timing on this set up .....at idle speed...... at between 5 and 10 before TDC.

Remember......timing marks on modified engines are not always accurate. Parts from this year and that year put together.
