Hi,when you put the timeing belt on the cank pully is at the 0 mark,wich is (T,D,C)top dead centre,now the other timeing you are talking about is called the ignition timeing,wich is when the spark ignites the fuel and air in the cumbustion chamber,this is why the ignition has to be set 5%(B,T,D,C)before top dead centre.
wright first inline the top dead centre 0mark back up on the crankshaft pully,then take off distributer cap and undo securing bolt so that distributor can turn,
the rotor arm should be pointing at the number one (H,T,L)high tention lead,now slowly turn the distributor anti clock wise,then slowly turn the distributor clock wise,now as it comes up to the number one h,t,lead it should spark,when it sparks tighten the disributor bolt back up,right it should start up and run maybe not to good but it should run,
now buy a timeing light where you can put the 5% into the timeing gun itself,so now put the earth and positive on the earth of the battery and the clip onto the H,T,lead start the car again and point the strobe light from the gun onto the 0T,D,Centre markthe mark should freez every time the light flashes on it ,undo bolt on distibutor and ajust verry slowly when you are happy that the mark is lineing up propperly then I think thts job done.
all the best.

SOURCE: I dont know to how many degrees before dead center to set my cars timing?

your timing should be set at 10 degrees with the TE1 and E1 pins jumped in the diagnostic connector located under the hood (should be set at idle speed)

SOURCE: squealing noise from fan belt for 1992 toyota pickup

Check the belt tension, you should not be able to move it more than about a half inch, should be able to twist it but not all the way over... If it is tight, is it cracked underneath where it rides against the pulley? If not and it is in good shape, you have other issues like a bad alternator, bad tension pulley, bad water pump, bad power steering pump, bad A/C unit... I would start by taking the belt off and pushing, pulling and rotating all of these items by hand to see if you find any issues.. Generally, if it is the water pump, you will see seepage coming from it but not always. It is pretty rare that it would be the power steering pump because you should feel that in your steering but it is possible that you would not, your alternator should have some movement if bad but it is possible that it doesnt-this can be checked at Advanced Auto for free.. Remove it and take it to them.

1987 toyota truck rattle between 1000 and 1500 rpms


Hi Lucas, What engine is fitted? If the engine is petrol, the rattling sound you have heard could well be an effect named 'pinking.' Its usually caused by the ignition timing being out of adjustment and related to the octane rating of the fuel. The ignition timing is set with a stroboscopic timing light. the ignition timing is set at 10 degrees before top dead center. Regards John

1992 Chevrolet Tahoe timing


timing on the chevy motors do not very much.
most of the older 350's timing are set about 8 deg before top dead center. some california smog certified 350 timing were set back to 0 deg or, at top dead center. check under the hood for a smog decal. it should have the timing specs, or it might say "timing not adjustable" or N/A. if it is missing the decal i would set it at 8 deg, road drive it, and listen for enging pinging on accelerating under load. if no ping i would leave it at 8 deg,if there is slight pinging i would ****** the timing in 2 deg increments until the pining stops. i would stop if i reach reach 0 deg or top dead center.

What should the timing be set on 1994 toyota pickup


I recently had to replace my water pump 1991 Toyota pickup.Everything was going smooth.What you have to do is make sure both cams are pointed at the marks/notches on the back timing cover.The left one might be pointed a little more to the left of the notch, and the right one may be pointed a little more to the right. the crankshaft has to be pointed at 0 degrees. The only way to be sure this is done proper is to turn the engine twice... use a socket attached to the crankshaft and turn it past the 0 degree mark once, until it comes back again (the second time) both marks on the cams need to match up exactly the way they started... next set a inductive timing light to number one cylinder, and gap the diagnostic terminal under the hood (use a paper clip and connect the e terminal to the terminal (check manual for this, some years you must detach a vacuum tube!!!) after this start the truck, put the timing light on the crankshaft, and measure the timing... timing should be 10 degrees BEFORE top dead center (0 degrees) this is at idle (~700) if the engine is turning faster than this, the timing will be different.. best of luck and make sure the terminals are jumped!! otherwise the engine will try and compensate for the difference
