Question about Cars & Trucks
My timing belt broke on my 93 mazda mpv V6 at idle at a stop light. i am installing a new one and have the timing marks alignd corectly however the rotor isnt pointing at #1 on the distributor its acually just past #1 about half way to the next terminal. does the motor need to be brought to TDC or at the 8 degrees before or will it be in time by aligning the marks and installing the belt regardless of where the rotor's pointing.
I would say install as is,you can always reset at 8 degrees if engine won't start.Can you move distrubeter

The keyway and or the dot on the crank should be line at 12 oclock. You will see a point on the oil pump housing to go by. On the camshaft the pointer will be at 12 oclock also. Use the O on the camshaft to the top at mark. Be sure to look at the dist. roter to make sure that it is pointing at the #1 spark plug wire. I could get 180 out of time. If you do it right it should start up right away. then you can use a timing light to finish it.
Good Luck email@example.com
