First you need to remove the number one cylider spark plug and find out when the piston is at the top of its stroke on the compression stroke. This is callled top dead centre (TDC). The timing mark on the harmonic balancer should be at 0. Then you need to follow the number one spark plug wire to the distributor and that is where the rotor should line up when you put the ditributor in the engine. This will result in 0 degrees of advance. The car should run and using a timing light, you should be able to set the timing to the factory specs.

69 lincoln continental timing chain marks need to be lined up and dont have a book


If you plan on doing any more engine work, you really need a book.
When you sell the car having a set of books adds value.
Generally speaking, Ford 8 cylinder engines had a mark or notch on each gear and the notches are aligned to face each other.
Crank notch on top and cam notch on bottom.

I need to set the timing on my 97 dodge neon. do i rotate the the crank 1/2 notch counter clockwise or three notches on a 2.0 SOHC


no notches . line up all the marks and put belt on. tighten tensioner. rotate crank 2 times and see if marks line up again. if they dont repeat untill they line up correcty.a half a notch off on one or two marks cannot be adjusted because there are no half notches. as long as one mark lines up if the other two are 1/2 notch off you are good. one notch off though and its installed wrong

Im trying to get the timing marks aligned and dont know where to align them to. Its my neighbors car and he doesnt have a service manual. Someone else tried replacing the timing belt for him and didnt...


with the timing belt on the vehicle install the botton piece of the timing cover with crank pulley. line up the notch on the crank pulley with 0 on the timing cover for top dead center on the crank. then there is a small sight hole in the spokes on the camshaft timing gear. with the belt off the timing gear line up that sight hole with a notch behind the gear on the cylinder head. you will only be able to see the notch through the sight hole with a mirror. once these are lined up slide the belt back on the timing gear and recheck afterward. this the procedure for all 5s-fe motors

Changing timing belt


LINE THE POINT ON THE CAMSHAFT SPROCKET WITH THE DIMPLE IN THE HEAD, THEN THERE WILL BE A NOTCH IN THE CRANKSHAFT SPROCKET THAT LINES UP WITH THE NOTCH RIGHT ABOVE IT, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO FIND IT! MAKE SURE IT IS THE SPROCKET AND NOT THE PULLEY CAUSE IF I REMEMBER RIGHT THEY AREN'T THE SAME.
