Question about 1985 Toyota Pickup
Noise is coming from the belts, its hard to pin point but I'm thinking its either the crank pulley bearing out the water pump?
Spray water on a running belt ( spray bottle) and that will eliminate the belt first use a mechanic stethoscope to listen to all, the bearings when running

Have you pulled out the spark plugs to see if there are any tell tale signs on them.They are a good indicator of many problems that occur and can save a lot of time isolating the problem.They should all be the same colour.Is the air box and lid properly secured with no leaks or splits in the intake tube.Have you put injector cleaner in the fuel tank to clear up any possible dirty injectors.Therse a few things your problem could be including engine vacuum leak which you can find by lightly spraying carburettor cleaner around suspect places such as inlet manifold and around injector seals.

SOURCE: engine cranks car won't start
Sorry..... 1 notch off is just not good enough. It has to be exact , then if it doesn't run start looking at other posibilities.
Remember that the camshaft turns twice eash time the crank turns once. The distributor rotor works off a gear on the cam.
Your rotor could be off a bit , or it could look exactly perfect the way it was when tou took it out , and still be 180 degrees off.
You have to get your engine to "top dead center" and make sure everything is the way it should be.
A timing chain ( or belt ) can cause permanent and fatal damage to the valve train and pistons in motors that are "interference engines" Find out weather yours is. In a non-interference engine , the clearance between the valves and the pistons is large enough to alow them to move out of time without crashing into each other. An interference engine is not so forgiving.
The fact that your engine cranks makes me hopefull that it is a non interference engine , and that damage has not been done.
Try to find a haynes manual for you vehicle , it will walk you through the steps for most repairs.
