Question about 1996 BMW 318
I am working on head gasket and i took the timing chain adjustor tension loose cos i cannot turn the crank over to line up so i thought something inside might have jammed so i marked it up with tippex and now i want to sort the timing chain line up like the crankshaft marking line up at the top but what about the crankshsaft do i turn 1 4 piston to TDC ,it that is the right cranksshaft line up ??? can u help me plz i apprecaite thank u
To set the timing you should turn the No.1 piston to TDC, then turn the cam to where both valves on No.1 are close. The timing mark on the sproket should now be in line with the mark on the cilinder head. With No. 1 still on TDC fit the chain.
After fitting turn the engin a few times by hand to make sure there's not a valve pushing against a piston.
