SOURCE: Can't set the timing on 85 2.5 litre Fiero.

You need to get the crankshaft into the number one cylinder top-dead-center compression (both valves closed) position. The crankshaft goes around twice as fast (twice as many times) as the camshaft and the camshaft turns the distributor. You need to turn the crank with a wrench. Loosen #1 spark plug, take the others out. Watch the timing marks on the front pulley. One time it will come up and not be on compression stroke. Another time you will hear air hiss out around the spark plug. This is the compression stroke. They alternate, compression - exhaust- compression - exhaust. Stop at 0 on the front pulley timing marks when it hisses. Now the rotor in the distributor needs to be pointing to number one spark plug wire. If the oil pump is driven by the bottom end of the distributor, most are, the drive needs to be aligned so they will mesh together. Now comes the tricky part, because of the shape of the distributor drive gears the distributor rotates as the gears mesh. Set the rotor where it needs to be, drop in into the hole and watch which way it turns and how much. Pull the distributor back up and adjust the rotor the opposite way that amount to compensate. Now drop it in again. Now it should be where you want it to be. The oil pump drive probably isn't meshed. Crank the engine around by hand while pressing down gently on the distributor. The distributor will drop the rest of the way in when the oil pump drive aligns with the distributor. Now crank the engine around again and verify that the rotor is in the right place when the crank comes up on TDC compression. If it isn't pull the distrib. up and adjust and repeat the steps to mesh the oil pump drive. Once you get it where you want it, put the hold down on, the cap on and try it out. If you can't turn it far enough to get the timing where it needs to be adjust the gear mesh again.

1. With transmission in Neutral or park, start engine and warm to normal operating temp. turn eng,and all accessories off. connect Tachometer. Connect timing light to no 1 spark plug wire.

2. Disconnect and plug fuel vapor canister purge hose and EGR vacuum hose. Start and ensure idle is 900 RPM. adjust idle as required. Check ignition timing ( 12 @ 900)

3. If adjustment is required, loosen distributor hold down bolt and turn until timing is within specification. Tighten distributor hold down bolt and recheck timing. adjust idle speed as required.

hope this helps

Just make sure the timing belt is on properlyy, lining up the cam and crank in proper position to each other. The engine willstart when fully assembled because the electrical has not be altered. If it has a crank position sensor , be sure to put it back on after cleaning it and the connector.

Tensioning timing belt

Timing belts usually have an automatic (spring Loaded) adjuster. Usual replacement is done at 100,000 k or 60,000 miles. If you do not replace it you run the risk of it breaking which could do damage to the engine. refer to your owners manual.

Engine timing

If all your marks are right there is a process for seting the timing that some people are not aware of. Did you jump the terminals at the data link connector (number 1) ? If you did not the toming will never set itself. Below is the proper procedure for setting the timing. Make sure your idle is at 700 + 50 and in nuetral. Hope this helps. The botom picture is the location of the data link connect (DLC1) that needs to be jumped.
