Here is a few diagrams of the timing marks. Be sure that you check the marks after the tensioner has been installed as well because installing the tensioner tends to slightly re-adjust the positions of the cams as it takes up slack on one side.
Be carful when turning the engine (by hand) because these engines are an interferance engine and the valves can contact the pistons. After everything is installed and tight, rotate the engine by hand twice and then recheck that the marks are good to go.
If you haven't replaced the water pump, I highly recommend you do it now.
hallo first let me know year, engine code (or at least typ of engine 1.2, 1.4...). and I will send you picture for timing belt. and it will (did) bend valves, so you`ll have to remove cilinder head *** well.
YOU NEED A REPAIR MANUAL.BECAUSE IT WILL SHOW YOU A DIAGRAM OF YOUR TIMING MARKS.AND HOW TO ADJUST TIMING BELT TENSION.ANY TIME YOU REPLACE A TIMING BELT ON ANY ENGINE.YOU NEED A TIMING BELT DIAGRAM.IF YOU DONT.YOUR ENGINE PISTONS WILL HIT THE VALVES CAUSE TERRIBLE ENGINE DAMAGE.
The crankshaft sprocket points to 6 oclock and aligns with a mark on the rear cover, the 2 camshaft sprockets align facing each other. However, have you check your valves? This is an interference engine, and in most cases you will bend 2 or more valves if the belt breaks. Good luck!
what model ?? 8 valve?? 16 valve?? petrol ?? diesel?? .Remove np one spàrk plug and put a long thin screwdriver into hole and turn engine till the piston is at the top and then look for timing marks ,if you still cant see them paint the cam gear .with a couple of spots of white paint ,the lower crank mark it when the keyway points at the top of bottom of the engine.If i remember rightly these opel engines have the timing mark as a white line on the belt .But mark it anyway and always rotate the engine 360% by hand to make sure the valves clear and you have it right
No it will NOT bend valves on this particular engine, if it goes out of
time. I would replace BOTH the timing belt and the drive belt at the
same time, since both are very inexpensive, even from the Ford dealer.
Line up both timing marks on both the cam and crank sprockets in the 12
o'clock position. The marks are very easy to see, once you remove the
timing belt cover. Hope this helps.
