Dont worry about that you will have to turn the motor over 40 to 50 time before those timing belt marks line up again if your pulley marks line up correctly thats all you have to worry about

On the 87 toyota camry what are the timming belt marks and spects when youi replace the belt

Hi Rockzone, Set the the engine to Top Dead Center before removing the old belt. If you've already removed it with the timing in any other position, do the following:- Rotate the camshaft so that the drill hole through the gear, is opposite a punch match mark behind it. (The punch mark is on the front of the camshaft cap). It is advisable to use a bright light and a mirror, which you hold at an angle in front of the camshaft drive gear. Shine the light between the gear and the cylinder head. Rotate the cam until the hole aligns with the punch mark. Once aligned, then rotate the crankshaft until the 'V' cut out on the crankshaft gear aligns with the match mark arrow on the front of the oil pump housing. Make sure that the tensioner bearing is at the maximum loose setting, fit the belt. Gently release the tensioner bearing and then recheck the timing. ( Adjust if required). When correct, tighten the lock nut on the tensioner bearing. Rotate the engine, turning it with a socket spanner from the crank shaft two full revolutions, and then recheck mark alignment. When the marks align after rotation, fit back everything else. Regards Johngee10

I am trying to find out if my 1985 Toyota Land Cruiser ignition timing is correct. My problem is that I can find no timing mark on the flywheel! Please, what am I missing? Rick

the timing marks are on the cam gears in which the timing belt rides on. Quick check is to get number one cylinder to top dead center then remove the distributor

Hi. i am really need help, i have just take out the timing Belt on my 1987 Toyota Camry then i replaced a new Belt and the Car would not started and i think maybe i set wrong timing belt because i forgot...

Don't crank that engine over is the first thing you do. Take out th eplugs and turn the engine by hand to it's marks. Take the belt off, check it for marks, yes, no? If no, how about the old one? Does it have marks on it? Match them up to the new one. and make marks, , turn the left cam over to it's mark, does it have two? Turn the other side over to it's mark. put the belt on, crank mark on the crank mark, cam marks on the cam marks, don't line up? It should, If the engine hits the valves, you will have to turn the cams at the same time by hand so they don't hit, don't force anything, if you get the belt on there without moving the engine, spin it around a couple times to make sure it stays on it's marks. I hope you didn't do any damage already by trying to start it. Hope this helps.

Cant get no. 1 piston top dead center with the timing belt

Ive replaced the head gasket two times (two cars) with this engine, and had a little trouble with this. The mark on the intake camshaft that matches the mark where it connects to the distributer is tricky. The mark on the distributer connection is not supposed to match up square with the mark on the camshaft, if you do match them completely, then the teeth wont match up with the timing belt completely (#1 piston position) instead, the mark shows you which flat surface to allign if that makes since. The notch (dist side) is on a flat hex surface, it is not in the middle of the surface but it should be. as long as the two pieces hex sides are lined up, you should then be able to get good timing with the #1 position after turning the crankshaft to get the timing belt to line up. its hard to explain but all markings are right for the timing belt, but the distributer notch to line up the cams for timing is a little off. match the two surfaces (notch should me a few mm to the right of the other mark) Ive done this on 2 toyotas (87 celica and 89 camry) and they both work fine now. Hope this helps.
