Hi, I don't know what type of vehicle you need to set the timing for,
generally I will remove the first plug, turn the engine by hand till the piston can be felt at the uppermost position with a screwdriver (at the plug hole), this brings the engine to the first firing stroke, the rotor on the distributer should be at or near position 1 for the plug lead. this is known as TDC (top dead centre) for timing, if the rotor is not lining up to the plug lead loosen and adjust the distribtor (in some cases you have to remove the distributor and reinsert till you find the correct seating position of the rotor. when it aligns don't forget to tighten distributor. Hope this helps.

    The points on the distributor will open fully when the rotor lines up to position 1. Where an electronic distributor is used, loosen & turn the distributor by hand, have a helper switch on the ignition, and when the rev counter needle jumps or shows movement that is the most likely spot for the timing. All the best, hope you succeed.

Set timing on 2000 explorer


It depends on what timing you are wanting to set. If you are talking about cam timing, there is major engine tear-down involved. If you are talking about ignition timing, there are no adjustments available for this.

How do you set timing on isuzu rodeo


It depends on the year. With newer models that don't have a distributor, you don't set timing. It is set by the cam position sensor, and the ignition module. older models with a distributor require a timing light and you use the flash from #1 firing in order to illuminate the timing marks on the crankshaft pulley.

I just replaced the distributor in my 1992 buick estate wagon and now the timing is off. How do I set it?


if the timing is close and not running rough you will need a timing light to set the timing.the timing spec should be on a decal on the upper rad support.i think its 6-8 degrees before top dead center.the motor should be at operating temp and with the timing light hooked up to the battery and #1 cylinder.point the light at the timing marks and adjust the timing to spec.when the timing is set tighten distributor hold down bolt and recheck timing to make sure tightening the bolt hasn`t changed the timing.

1995 acura how do u set the vals and timming


First you will need a service manual or information for this vehicle for the valve lash setting. The procedure is usually removing the valve cover( You will need a new valve cover gasket) putting the # 1 cylinder on top dead center and using wrench, screw driver or allen key,and a feeler gauge. You will need to follow the firing order when adjusting the valves. You will need a timing light to set the timing and also the timing spec. This usually involves warming engine to normal operating temp. clean harmonic balancer and mark the timing mark with some white paint loosen the the distributor hold down bolt hook up timing light and turn distributor until the timing mark on the balancer lines up with the timing mark on the timing cover then tighten the holding bolt back down. Also the timing advance has to be disabled when setting the timing and enabled when you are done. The valves should be set first then set the timing. A Haynes manual available at your local auto parts store should contain pictures and information to help you do this.
