What degree should timing be set on 1984 vw rabbit?


most static settings are 10 degrees btdc
timing lights will be at the 10 degree btdc mark
the workshop manual will have the manufacturers specs but timing can be changed to suit the octane rating of the fuel used but even that is limited to one or 2 degrees either side of the 10

How do you know the timing needs to be set? Check library for a repair manual. Usually the timing marks are marked on the front balancer pully mark the designated mark with something like whiteout so you can see it properly with a timing light.

How do u reset timing of distributor after replaceing it. on a ford e350 94'


You will need a timing light....Start the engine and allow it to warm to normal operating temperature....disconnect the vacuum adavance--then slowly rotate the distrubtor while using the timing light to set it.
The timing mark for top dead center will be on the harmonic balancer, the pointer will be attached to timing chain cover, Set the timing as follows per engine size.
5.0L- BTDC 10° ± 2°
5.8L- BTDC 10° ± 2°
7.5L- BTDC 10° ± 2°

Turn off the engine and tighten the distributor bolt. Recheck the timing to verify that the timing did not move while tightening the distributor. Replace the shorting bar or vacuum line.

I hope this helps,

I can find the timing mark I need riset the time on nissan pickup 1986 2wd


Hi,
the timing mark is usually a white painted groove on the main fan belt pulley.
Look for another plate with a a couple of lines or grooves mounted on the engine block right behind the fan belt pulley wheel.
Assuming you have hooked up your timing light per the instructions...When you shine your timing light at this area you are looking to see if the pulley mark lines up with the timing mark on the engine block plate when the engine is at a specific idling speed and the distributor is adjusted to make the timing mark line up when cylinder 1 is firing.
The engine block plate is often marked as 6 deggrees BTDC (before top dead centre). The middle mark is usually top dead centre. (the timing figure could be anything eg 8 deg BTDC..I am just usually an example figure)

I know how to kinda do the timing but when i have the timing light on the marks i dont know which mark is suppose to be the 4 deg tdc.


Your auto's spec sheet should tell you what your timing degree should be. For example, a 1969 Ford 429, 6 Degrees BTDC @ 550 rpm in drive gear - with automatic trans, with a firing order of 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8. All this means is that you want to line up the pointer on the timing light with the 6° timing mark when the engine is idling in gear at 550 rpm. As you can see, it also says something about "BTDC" for this Ford. There is also an "ATDC." "Before Top Dead Center" and "After Top Dead Center" - top dead center is the point where the piston reaches the highest point in the cylinder and that is when the compression is the greatest. Now, your timing marks with have a line labeled "0" with marks above and below it, and depending on which way the wheel rotates, you will see the lines before the "0" (BTDC), or after the "0" (ATDC)

How do you time a toyota 4 runner 3.0?


22r-E, 3vz-E And 3f-E Engines

  1. Warm up the engine, then turn it OFF. Connect a timing light to the engine following the manufacturer_s instructions.
  2. Connect a tachometer to both battery terminals. Connect the tachometer probe to the IG-terminal in the check connector box. The check connector box is located next to the underhood fuse and relay box on trucks and 4Runner's; for Land Cruisers, the check connector box is on the firewall. Use the correct adapter to insure a tight fit on the terminal. Not all tachometers, particularly older ones are electrically compatible with this system. Read instructions for your unit before using.

Attach the tachometer as shown

3. Start the engine and run it at idle. Check the idle speed on the tachometer; adjust it to specification if necessary.

4. At the check connector, use a small jumper wire to short the connector at terminal T or TE1 and terminal E1, of the DLC1 as shown. Special service tool (SST) 09843-18020 or its equivalent can be used for this also.

Connect the SST or jumper wire to the TE1 and E1 terminals of the DLC1

This jumper will be used repeatedly during diagnostics in later sections. Take the time to make a proper jumper with correct terminals or probes. It's a valuable special tool for very low cost.
  1. Check the idle speed, then check the ignition timing. The 22R-E should read 5° BTDC, 3VZ-FE should read 10° BTDC and the 3F-E should read 7° BTDC. All of these readings are at idle.

On 3-FE engines, remove the rubber plug at the rear of the engine to view the timing mark

On other engines, the timing mark is visible on the crankshaft pulley

  1. Loosen the distributor pinch bolt just enough that the distributor can be turned. Aim the timing light at the marks on the crankshaft pulley (or the drive plate on 3F-E) and slowly turn the distributor until the correct timing mark aligns with the pointer. Tighten the distributor pinch bolt.
  2. Remove the jumper wire or special service tool (SST) from the DLC1.
  3. Check that the ignition timing advances. At idle the 22R-E should read 10°-14° BTDC, 3VZ-FE should read 8° BTDC, and the 3F-E should read 12° BTDC.
  4. Shut the engine OFF and remove the timing light and tachometer leads.
