If you look at the back edge of the camshafts you will see a slot, this slot is off center on the shaft end, you are supposed to use a special tool and turn each shaft to where that slot is flat across the cylinder head, then insert the tool (flat piece of steel) into the slots, the tool hold the cams in place while you reset and put on the belt. You can find this diagram in any Haynes or Chilton manual, availiable at your local parts store, autozone should be able to print it out for you from AllData for free, hope this helps, let me know

Diagram of timing specs on a 2000volkswagen Passat


There are several engines in a 2000 Passat, but none of them have adjustable timing that I know of. The main thing one needs are camshaft timing marks. If it is the 2.8 V6, I won't even begin to start because you need to rent cam position tools, and you need a book.
The Vr6 is a chain and you don't set cam timing normally.
The 1.8 turbo looks like the link, I believe.

Timing chain installation


1996-1999 Toyota Corolla valve timing:
It is very easy to install the timing belt on 1997 Toyota Corolla. Do the following:
- Mark the numbers 1,2 and 3 on the spark plug wires with permanent marker or nail polish and remain the 4th one unmarked. This is necessary so that you can easily remember the spark plug wires order later on their original position.
- Remove the spark plugs so that the engine can easily be rotated.
- Rotate the crankshaft clockwise to align the v- groove mark on the crankshaft pulley with the 0 mark on the timing belt cover. If these marks are aligned the piston is always on the Top Dead Position (TDC).

- To replace the timing belt remove the crankshaft pulley, upper and lower timing covers.
- Temporarily screw in the crankshaft bolt in its place to rotate the crankshaft with the spanner and align the v- groove of lower crankshaft gear with the index mark on the oil pump cover as shown in the following diagram.
- Inspect the cam shaft mark through the small hole on the cam shaft sprocket. The punch mark should be exactly behind the hole on the cam shaft sprocket as shown in the following diagram.

- Loosen the timing bearing bolt, press the bearing forcefully against the spring with some suitable tool and lock it there temporarily.
- Remove the timing belt.
- Remove the timing bearing.
- Replace the new timing belt and bearing with the original.
- Install in the reverse order of dis-assembly.
NOTE: NEVER PUT EXTRA FORCE ON TIMING BEARING TO ADJUST THE TIMING BELT TENSION. JUST LOOSEN THE TIMING BEARING BOLT AND THE SPRING ATTACHED TO IT WILL PULL THE BEARING IT SELF WITH THE PRESET TENSION TO ADJUST THE TIMING BELT.
Thank you for visiting Fixya.

I need a diagram of timing chain replacement Thank You


During most engine rebuilds, a completely new timing assembly should be installed. If wear exists on any component, replacement of the entire assembly is necessary. Wear in the chain, gears, or sprockets means a timing lag, which results in poor engine performance.
The timing chain or belt is generally installed with the gears in their correct positions. Before installing a new chain, soak it in oil.
OHC (Overhead Cam) Engines
Some OHC engines use a chain drive; others use a belt drive. Removing the cover on some OHC engines that have timing chains is more difficult, because the cover often fits between the oil pan and the cylinder head. There are special procedures for replacing cam timing components in these engines.
Before a chain repair job, perform a leakage test on non-freewheeling engines to check for bent valves, so that an accurate repair estimate can be made.
OHV (Overhead Valve) Pushrod Engines
On many OHV pushrod engines, the crankshaft sprocket is installed on the crankshaft nose and the crankshaft is rotated to position piston #1 at TDC. At this point, a mark stamped onto the crankshaft sprocket is pointing directly upward (toward the camshaft).
The camshaft sprocket is then temporarily bolted to the cam and used to rotate the cam until a mark stamped on the cam sprocket is pointing directly downward (toward the crankshaft). The sprocket is then removed from the cam (without allowing the cam to rotate).
The timing chain is looped over the cam gear, the mark on the cam gear is positioned directly downward, and the chain is looped around the crankshaft sprocket. When the cam sprocket is attached to the cam, the timing marks on the crank and cam sprockets should be pointing toward one another. NOTE THIS IS FOR 2WD 4.0

Changed the water pump on my 1997 passport & now the timing is off.


I assume you are talking about valve timing not igntion timing. If that is the case your water pump maybe run by the timing belt. If it is you would need to completely disassemble the timing cover and set the number one cylinder to TDC (top dead center) on the Compression stroke not the exhaust stroke. Once you do that line the timing marks up on cam gears with marks on the side of the head. Then install a new timing belt and tensioner. It is a good idea to always change the pump and belt together. I would suggest buying a manual for your specific vehicle for specific torque specs and exact locations of components and procedures.

I need a diagram to sincronize the timing belt of my isuzu tropper 3.2 sohc


if this is 6VD1 engine it has single cam gear each head, but is still a 2 cams per head, engine
if belt has broke or you have turned any gear you must remove rocker covers to check positions of camshafts front lobes are in certain spot as well as timming mark on belt driven cam gear to cover
this cam gear is a 3:1 ratio (3 turns of cam gear = 1 turn of cams)

Timing belt replacing


a diagram will help but let me give you a hint you dont need the diagram, once you remove the cover you will see 3 gears the top is the cam gear and if you look at the gear pulley there is a small hole set this at twelve o clock position, the distributor gear which is the middle one should be set in such a way that the rotor of the distributor alighn with number one on the dist cap and the third the last should be set to align the timing mark on the bell housing of the transmission and set it to zero, instal the belt and the car will run fine

Belts


Timing belt has marks on it that refer to the cam marks and the crank gear. Looking at the engine from the front, the timing belt should drape over the two cam gears, with 40 cogs between them on the belt. The timing belt should have 42 or 43? cogs between the driver cam mark and the mark on the crank gear. The way i've installed mine is to put the belt on the driver side cam and crank, and then put it on the passenger side cam. You'll need to lock the tensioner clockwise about 70-80 degrees to get enough clearance to install the belt.
