There are no timing marks. Timing is done using special tools to hold the crank at top center and a tool to hold each camshaft in position. the cam sprockets are not pinned to the cams. there are also dummy tensioners installed to take up the slack till the tightening is done. Also there are chains at the back of the motor that can only be timed with the motor out of vehical.

1997 Nissan sentra DOHC 1.6 liter dual timing chain, upper & lower timing chains where r the timing marks supposed to be positioned to in order to perfectly be in time


I believe you have to make your own marks before you remove the chain so you can line it back up.
I just checked on alldata and thats the only thing they showed about timing marks.

My timing chain broke in my 2002 ford explorer 4.0..and after rebuilding the heads due to damage to the valves, but now how do I put the timing chain without the marks on there?


theres 3 sprokets stacked verticaly correct? the bottom shaft keyway should point straight up. the 2nd shaft keyway should point straight down. finally the top gear keyway should be pointing straight up. alittle mark on the gear teeth should match a mark on the lower gear teeth.

In replacing a water pump in a 1997 ford coutour, the book i have says to remove the timing belt, 1. i cant find any cam marks to keep things aligned 2. any good ideas on how to loosen the crank pulley...


they dont have marks, we at the dealership use a special tool. you can make your own marks. if you reuse the timing belt make sure that you mark the direction, crank pully bolt you can get a chain wrench from auto zone that will wrap around the pulley and lock down to hold it. i have used this when an impact wasnt handy.
