It doesn't have any. there are no keyways to line up. you need a speacial plug that the crank shaft rests against and ther is a flat tool that fits into slots on the back side of the cams (you have to take the high pressure fuel pump off). if you loosen any of the cam bolts or crank bolt without them everything is out of time. why do you need timming marks, you don't have to change the chain. are you installing a new vct gear?

I need the titening torque specs on a Isuzu 4hk1, big end bolts,cilinder bolts and injector timing marks on the flywheel and cam gears


head bolts
98 N?m (10 kg?m/72 lb?ft) ?147 N?m (15 kg?m/108 lb?ft) ? 30° - 60°

big ends
39 N?m(4.0 kg?m/29 lb?ft) ? 60° ?30

flywheel is dowled pined to crankshaft so it goes in correct position.so cant get that wrong unless someone has removed dowel pin.

timing mark on front pulley in middle of pulley aligns up with mark in front timing cover, and cam should have dot or "B" (depending on year) that aligns up with outer edge of head when TDC No1 firing. in this position the injector pump if common rail has dot on gear that aligns to casting mark on pump near where shaft for gear comes out of pump (can only see when pump is removed) white texta mark the tooth with the dot and fit pump while all other marks previuosly mentioned are still in correct position, in side of bell housing there should be an inspection nut or plastic bolted tear drop cover to remove close to chassis rail look inside with mirror and torch and white texta marked tooth should be in middle of this inspection hole to confirm its not a tooth out.

The timing belt tensioner failed on my 2000 saturn Ls2 now the timing is off how do i get it back 2 tdc i got new belt n all pulleys but dont want 2 take belt off b4 i know how 2 get the timing back t


Remove Belt.Turn crankshaft pulley mark to line up with mark on housing TDC. Turn camshaft gear mark to line up with mark on head or block housing. More than one mark on cam gear ? If so turn camshaft till number four cylinder inlet and exhaust valves are just rocking this is the mark to use. ( same can be used on a six cylinder engine rocking number six valves ) fit new parts, tension belt, (TIP) now turn engine twice by hand , recheck that timing marks line up . saves a lot of time if you find they don't later.

STEP 2. Slacken tensioner pulley bolt [8].Push tensioner pulley firmly against timing belt to tension belt.



STEP 3. Tighten tensioner pulley bolt [8] . Tightening torque: 43-55 Nm.


STEP 4. Except Matrix: Turn crankshaft one turn clockwise.



STEP 5. Matrix: Turn crankshaft two turns clockwise.


STEP 6. Ensure timing marks aligned [6] .


STEP 7. Apply a load of 2 kg to belt at .Belt should deflect 4-6 mm. If not Adjust position of tensioner pulley.



STEP 8. Install components in reverse order of removal.


STEP 9. Tighten crankshaft pulley bolt [2] . Tightening torque: 170-180 Nm
(7) is timing mark on cam,pin mark to top,hole in spoke below pin mark lines up with mark on head (6) is crank timing mark,pin mark on crank lines up with markS on block.

TIMING BELT
COMPONENT
REMOVAL
1. Disconnect negative battery cable.
2. Loosen power steering lock bolts and nuts accordingly and remove tension from Power Steering (P/S) and/or Air Conditioning (A/C) compressor
drive belt.
3. Remove P/S and/or A/C drive belt.
4. Loosen generator mounting bolts and adjusting bolt.
5. Remove generator bolts.
6. Remove water pump pulley.
7. Remove crankshaft pulley and timing belt guide plate.
8. Remove upper and lower timing belt covers.
9. Turn crankshaft so that timing mark on timing belt pulley is aligned with timing mark on engine.
10. Check that "I" mark on intake camshaft pulley is aligned with mark on cylinder head cover and "E" mark on exhaust camshaft pulley is aligned
with mark on cylinder head cover.
NOTE: Do not move camshaft or crankshaft once timing marks have been correctly positioned.
11. Loosen tensioner pulley lock bolt.
12. Protect timing belt with a rag.
13. Remove tensioner pulley.
14. Remove timing belt.
NOTE: Mark the direction of timing belt rotation (on the timing belt) for proper reinstallation.
INSPECTION
NOTE: Never forcefully twist, turn inside out or bend timing belt. Do not allow oil or grease to come in contact with timing belt.
1. Replace timing belt if it is contaminated with oil or grease.
2. Check timing belt for uneven wear, fraying, peeling, cracking and hardening. Replace timing belt as necessary.
3. Bend timing belt into a "U" shape as shown in figure. Distance "A" must be at least 1.0 inch (25 mm).
4. Inspect both idler pulley and tensioner pulley for uneven wear and smooth bearing operation.
5. Inspect camshaft pulleys and timing belt pulley for broken teeth or damage.
NOTE: Replace any component that shows damage, excessive wear, or that appears prone to a possible failure.

Timing belt


Well basicaly there is no adjustment it has timing marks and the belt goes on with the marks on the points.cam pulley has a stamped mark up with line marks that go evenly one on each side has to be even with top of the head.crank pulley the woodruff key goes straight up facing the cam pulley.The balance pulley has a v mark on the pulley and a mark on the block and those go together, dont worry about the water pump there is not timing mark on that.Good Luck

Want to change my timing belt on a 3.2 rodeo 1998 24v engine


The marks should be in the shape of "arrows" or indented "lines" located on the pulleys and the face of the head gasket. There are alike marks on the crankshaft pulley and the face of the engine block also. Make sure your #1 cylinder is at "Top Dead Center" before you line up the pulleys on the cylinder head and install the belt.
