SOURCE: timing zx2 escort TDC ?

The cams have a notch in the back of them (facing driver's side) in which fits a flat piece of steel to lock the cams in place. The notches are not exactly centered on the camshaft, meaning that it's impossible to set them 180 degrees out, because then the flat piece of steel that is supposed to be inserted to lock the cams in place simply won't fit because the top of the cylinder head will get in the way. I highly recommend getting a Hayne's or Chiltons manual if you don't already have one. It should explain this process under the Timing Belt Replacement instructions. The cam lock tool (that flat piece of steel) can be purchased at

I have a oz xe 4.1 lt 250 xflow motor which i have rebuilt and put flat top pistons in bored out 60 thou shaved yella terra head 15 thou and has a very mild cam after lining up timing marks the inlet

when setting up the valve timing it is always done on the exhaust stoke.. Place the piston on TDC and set the valve timing so that the exhaust valve is just closing and the inlet is just opening. Rocking the crank a bit before tdc to a bit after tdc will produce a movement where the exhaust starts to close as the inlet starts to open. This is known as valve rock or valve overlap. The cam modification is of no consequence as the as all that is modified is the valve duration , not when they open or close. With the cam now timed to the crank turn the crank 180 degrees and set the ignition timing to the degrees advanced recommended ( 10-12 degrees bftdc is recommended for starting). Place the HT leads in the correct firing order and when running use a timing light to adjust ignition timing. If you are fitting a new cam then you must bedding in grease and when the motor starts it has to be run at around 2.000rpms for around 10 minutes to set (harden) the cam lobes or else they will wear off very quickly.

How do you set timing on isuzu rodeo

It depends on the year. With newer models that don't have a distributor, you don't set timing. It is set by the cam position sensor, and the ignition module. older models with a distributor require a timing light and you use the flash from #1 firing in order to illuminate the timing marks on the crankshaft pulley.

I don't know if you've figured it out yet, but it's timing or a firing order related issue.

Setting timing belt

If the distributor has been pulled, it needs to be reinstalled as to fire on #1 TDC, To drop this distributor,
1) bring #1 piston to Top Dead Center (TDC) with the timing mark on the Harmonic balancer on the zero (or V groove),
2) Next the dist. will have a indentation (little dimple) at the very bottom of the shaft, while out of the motor, align that dimple with the white line on the oil pump flange (the ring that nestles on the oil pump) the white line should be vertical.
3) Now when you drop the dist. down to align with the cam, the rotor should rotate to a number stamped on the dist. base. Such as a # 8 for V8 or #6 for V6. This should now be setting correctly to fire on #1 while TDC. You'll have to be close on meshing the cam tooth because the distributor can really only fit against the back of the intake housing perpendicular.
4) Once you have this done slightly tighten the hold down clamp. The chances of it being dead on for timing are slim, so the timing will have to be adjusted with a programmable tech II scanner. Timing is not adjustable for this motor manually.
*Contrary to most people statements, There is no tan wire with a white tracer behind the glove box on this year (96-2000) This was discontinued after 1995, The only thing you accomplish by rotating the dist. is throwing the injectors out of wack because they are read by the CPS (Crank positioning sensor in reference to the Cam (Cam positioning Sensor) .Hope this helps.
