On the crankshaft gear there is a VERY small dimple that aligns with a mark on the motor. The mark on the motor (a small triangle) is at roughly 11 o'clock. After you line these timing marks up look at the camshaft gear and you will see that on one of the spokes there is a hole. You need to use a mirror to line this hole up with the dimple on the cover that is behind the camshaft gear. (It is at roughly 1 o'clock) If this hole is 180 degrees from where it should be you need to rotate the motor 1 more revolution at the crankshaft and it should now be lined up, or close. Once lined up I like to take a silver (metallic) Sharpie and make my own mark on the camshaft gear and on the backing plate that is behind it. You can make this mark where ever it is convenient for you. As long as you know where your marks line up, that is all that matters. This way I don't have to use the mirror as often.

  • Step 5 Once you have your timing marks aligned you need to locate the tensioner. The tensioner obviously keeps the appropriate amount of tension on the timing belt.

    I need timing belt marks for new timing belt on a 1994 Toyota Camry LE 2.2L 4 cylinder

    Firstly the no.1 piston should be at TDC (compression).

    The upper camshaft sprocket has a smaller hole in the web. This should be lined up exactly with the TDC timing mark behind it on the cam bearing cap. In this position it will be vertically upwards.

    At the same time the notch in the crankshaft pulley timing flange should be opposite the 0 degrees mark on the timing marks on the front of the lower belt cover.

    How do i line up the timimg pulleys on a 89 toyota 2c motor? were are the marks? i can see one on the cam sprocket but not on the crank sprocket? is it the key notch on the end of the crack shaft?

    No. The second timing mark will be found on the Oil Pump Housing. if you line the belt up with the timing mark on the camsprocket, and if need be use a guide string, and line it up with the Oin Pump Housing, you should be able to see it.

    Hope this helps =)

    Timing out by half a tooth

    if you use marks on the belt,try to revers or rotate t/belt untill marks lined up correctly with marks on sprockets.Use something like big binder clips to hold belt on camshaft sprockets(line them up first) , then go for crank.

    Hi need to know what timing marks to use when replacing cams

    The timing marks to use are spot-drilled on the faces of the timing gears.
    The timing marks on the camshaft gears must align side-by-side, and as closest as possible on the Toyota,Camry 2.2 engine.
