SOURCE: 2.0 L Timing Belt Marks

hi if its a twin cam ford engine you wont find marks on the cam pulleys.what you have to do is take off the cam cover and look at the back of the cams you will see slots in them ,what you have to do is you can buy the timing kit for the engine at the main dealers or you can make you own using a flat piece of metal 5mm thick and100 mm long this fits into the two slots at the rear of the cams to lick them in place and th crankshaft pulley mark should be in line of luck.

SOURCE: timing chain mark diagram for a 94 grand am????

Haynes lists the entire procedure for setting the position of the cams etc. Positioning of these is critical...If off by even a slight amount the valves WILL strike the pistons and destroy the engine. DO NOT use any parts made by SA Gear...They have no quality control and will deny any claim made against them. Make sure that the chain guides are in good condition and that the chain tensioner is operating properly.

Do the timing marks on the gears line up at TDC or not on a kia k2700 motor

Makes no difference where the piston is, no matter the make of the vehicle, the timing marks on the gears MUST line up with each other or by factory settings if a chain is used on an overhead cam. I don't know Kia operations or settings, it's just a normal rule that the marks on the gears must always be adjacent to each other in order for all cam timing to be correct. This isn't timing the firing of the cylinders, that's through the distributor setting. Your just timing the cam with those marks. Distributor timing marks are on the balancer on the front of the crankshaft, which you've yet to put on.

Resetting timing after replacing head gasket

Do you have the timing belt on and the tensioner set correct? If so, just rotate the crankshaft around until the notch on the crank sprocket is lined up with the pointer on the oil puimp housing (TDC). Now the camshaft sprocket's notch or pointer should be at the top and exactly in line with the mark on the rear timing belt cover. If it's not correct, you'll have to release tension on the belt, remove it, and set the camshaft to the mark. But before you do that, turn the crankshaft back (counterclockwise) just three notches. Then you can turn the cam to line up, then return crank to line up, and continue with belt installation, setting the tension, and re-checking timing marks after rotating the crankshaft a couple of revolutions. Once you know the timing is set to TDC, no further timing adjustments are possible, because the computer controls timing. I don't know how important it is, but just to let you know: Chrysler recommends after belt removal or replacement that one perform the "crankshaft and camshaft relearn alignment procedure" using the DRB scan tool (Chrysler's scanner device) or equivalent scan tool.
And the firing order on all four cylinder engines is the same: 1 3 4 2.
I hope this helps you out. Cheers.

I need to know the torques specs for the head bolts on a 1991 vw passat, can you help

I,m assuming that you have the head off for some reason. So before you put it back together you need to know a couple things. Make sure your crank is lined up with your timing mark for TDC BEFORE you put the head on the engine. Also the timing marks on the head have to be lined up BEFORE you put the head on. If they don't do this properly you will bend valves when you try to get it lined up.
The head bolts must be tightened in a specific order or the head will crack.They must also be removed in the reverse order. The five bolts on the exhaust side of the engine are numbered from the timing belt in this order: 10-4-2-6-8. The five bolts on the intake side are numbered from the timing belt in this order: 7-5-1-3-9. Sorry I can't send pics so maybe draw this out before you start, basically it a set of X's.
timing 10 4 2 6 8 distributor
belt 7 5 1 3 9

The torque is done in 3 stages. The first torque is 30 ft-lbs (40Nm). The second torque is 43 ft-lbs (60Nm). The third torque is 1/2 turn or 180 degrees. This final torque can be done as 2 1/4 turns or 90 degrees if you wish. Hope this helps.

I know how to kinda do the timing but when i have the timing light on the marks i dont know which mark is suppose to be the 4 deg tdc.

Your auto's spec sheet should tell you what your timing degree should be. For example, a 1969 Ford 429, 6 Degrees BTDC @ 550 rpm in drive gear - with automatic trans, with a firing order of 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8. All this means is that you want to line up the pointer on the timing light with the 6° timing mark when the engine is idling in gear at 550 rpm. As you can see, it also says something about "BTDC" for this Ford. There is also an "ATDC." "Before Top Dead Center" and "After Top Dead Center" - top dead center is the point where the piston reaches the highest point in the cylinder and that is when the compression is the greatest. Now, your timing marks with have a line labeled "0" with marks above and below it, and depending on which way the wheel rotates, you will see the lines before the "0" (BTDC), or after the "0" (ATDC)

Trying to set timing on 77 chev nova with a v6 the battery keep dying every time i try to crank it.

Looking at the crank shaft pulley, you should see a timing mark on the front gear cover and then there will be marks on the pulley. Line up these marks using a ratchet and socket on the front crankshaft pulley bolt. Next remove the distributor cap and look at the rotor button and determine which spark plug the button is pointing at. Find exactly which engine you have in this car. 1977 novas came with a straight 6 and a v8. If a v6 has been installed you need to know which one as the chevy engines have very different firing orders. You need to know the firing order to check the timing correctly. Be sure the firing order is right before going any further.

I have an 89 Ford Aerostar that I need to know where the #1 wire goes on the distributor cap

there is 2 ways you can do that...1... is there should be a #1 stamped into the cap but not always so in that case... 2... turn the engine over by hand and line up the timing marks on the harmonic balancer (A straight line cut into it on the outside diameter) with the mark on the timing gear cover to TDC,OR 0 degrees,pull off the cap and look to see where the rotor is pointing on the distributor.MARK that location on the intake manifold or wherever it points to as a reference point.Usually the rotor at this point will point towards the rear of the engine,start #1 there and follow the firing order,if it backfires or does not want to start then double check the direction you are going with the firing order and double check the order and if it still backfires or does not want to run then try opposite direction or 180 degrees on the cap and start #1 there and follow the firing order the direction the rotor turns while cranking.The reason why it could be 180 degrees off is because when the timing marks are lined up,the intake valve could be open or the both valves are shut.The correct way is to pull off a valve cover and see if both rocker arms are floating,in other words that both valves would be shut--Thats when you know #1 cylinder is all the way up and the rotor will point that direction on the cap,but im trying to save you tons of work by leaving the valve cover alone.

I am having a problem lining up all my timing marks in order to install my new belt. It seems that with crankshaft pully on tdc i cannot rotatethe right camshaht pully to line up in between the marks on...

Be carefull if you cant turn camshaft, piston is hitting valves, turn crankshaft to about 11o'clock or 1 o'clock so that piston's are some what down, now turn camshaft to timing marks, then turn crankshat back to tdc. Hope this was very helpful.
