You can remove the #1 spark plug and get the piston at top dead center, (all the way up in the cylinder). You can also check the access hole in the top of the transmission housing, to line up the TDC timing mark on the flywheel to the transmission housing. The mark on the crank pulley is rather hard to see, just a little mark "V'ed" into the pulley lip.

1999 lexus LX470 does the timing mark on the left bank line up with the single dot or the double dot if i line up with the double dot (as per manual) the pully for the timing belt points down 180 degr


looking from the front of the engine , the pulley mark on the LH cam pulley lines (12o'clock) up with the centre of the 2 notches and the RH lines up (12 o'clock) with the single notch. On the crank one mark will be lined up with a single notch at about the 1 o'clock position and another at the 3 o'clock position lined up with a series of dots. Ensure that you have the piston on TDC no1 first and align the crank marks first.

I have a 1986 isuzu pickup with 2.3 eng i cant find the timing mark on the oil pump pully where is it


Oil pump has no timing mark. Just get the crank and cam marks aligned. Make sure the belt is tight on the right between the cam and crank sprockets when they are on their marks. Then apply tensioner. OK?

In replacing a water pump in a 1997 ford coutour, the book i have says to remove the timing belt, 1. i cant find any cam marks to keep things aligned 2. any good ideas on how to loosen the crank pulley...


they dont have marks, we at the dealership use a special tool. you can make your own marks. if you reuse the timing belt make sure that you mark the direction, crank pully bolt you can get a chain wrench from auto zone that will wrap around the pulley and lock down to hold it. i have used this when an impact wasnt handy.

How to set timing marks when changing the timing belt 1995 kia sportage 2.0liter


There is a DOHC or SOHC (double or Single overhead cam engone. Both are Similar. Both have a notch on back side of crank pully that aligns with a tab on engine just above crank pully looks like a triangle with the tip near crank pully is rounded off. SOHC engines have an arrow on cam pully that aligns with a point at top of timing belt rear housing. about straight up at top of it. DOHC have an I and an E on the cam pullys I for INTAKE and E for EXHAUST. the I and E match up at same type points on top of rear Timing belt housing. When installing belt make sure you do not move pullys. put belt on starting with cam shaft (s) then down to crank on tension side which looking at motor will be the right side or Clockwise direction keeping it tight no, or EXTREEMLY little slack. then back up around tensioner. Tensioner should be the last pully to go around. Once on make sure timing marks still lline up.Adjust tensioner and. rotate engine BY HAND 4 times and re check marks.
