Yes be sure the number one piston is at TDC firing stroke or compresson stroke and line up the timing mark pointer is pointed at exactly zero. One more thing when aligning the camshaft sprocket or sprockets be sure that when you are rotating the sprocket for the cam it is rotating in the correct direction and also be sure you observe the intake valve for number one shutting as you bring the marks up to alignment points, the intake valve and the exhaust valve should be shut when the marks line up if not you could have the cam sprocket off 180 degrees, get it right the first time or you may damage a valve trying to start.

Install the cam sprocket, timing chain, and timing chain cover. Make sure the dot on the crankshaft gear is pointing towards the center of the Camshaft gear bolt. Make sure the hole in the Camshaft gear is pointing towards the center of the crankshaft. Be sure to remove the nail holding the chain tensoner back, before installing the timing cover The round hole in the cam gear is the alignment mark

How to set timing on a 1985 Mercedes 300d

If the timing chain broke, the timing of the injection pump is likely off also. In order to time that correctly, you need to remove the pump. If you want to tackle that I'll send you more information about setting the basic timing of the pump.

Timing chain

It appears that you got it right but to be sure the check is on the timing chain there are 3 black links If you have it right then the black links will line up with the marks. If not then re adjust the gear that is not correct.- ensure that you have the ignition timing right as you may be 180 degrees out

Need tiing diagram for 2005 5.4l engine

If your talking about the cam timing, then it's a bit complicated. There are two timing chains and the marks depend on having chains with different colored links to line them all up.

The crankshaft should be where the key way is at about the 270 degree mark and the crank gear with the timing mark is at the bottom. the D/S chain goes on first and there should be a machined notch that will be "up". the raised line will be down. The chain goes on with the SINGLE colored link at the crank mark and the notch between the TWO links. The P/S chain goes the same way but the cam gear only has the one notch on it. Here is a picture:

Im putting timing chain on my 93 chevy s10 pickup 4.3 and there are gears behind the timing chain what do I do

first thing i would do is make sure your timing marks are lined up before removing the chain and gears,,,turn it over by hand till they line up then remove the bolts in the cam and pull off the cam gear and chain,,you will probably need to use a prybar to get the bottom gear off,,,line up your timing marks and istall the new gears and chain

The timing chain,cam gear and crank gear has all been replaced.the timing has been set and still the truck will not turn over,backfires once and does the same hollow this is a freewheeling engine...

It definately sounds as though you've got your cam gear set 180 degrees off.When your timing is at top dead center your crankshaft will be at TDC on the guage, the cam gear will have both of the lobes at 10:00 and 2:00 away from the surface of the valve they serve on the number one cylinder. This can only be see if the valve cover is removed, which at this point I'm sure it is. Thank you, Dana

I have a 91 nissan stanza 2.4 and the timing chain broke. I do not know if you need to drop the motor if yes how do i do it. I have done mechanic work on other car but they were american made and back in...

It is probably not the timing chain but the tensioner and guides. The guides are some bakelite plastic ****. you need to take off a lot stuff, belts power steering, altenator pulleys timing case cover. Check the timing gears and chain for damage. Replace guides tensioner and any damaged parts. Disconnecting the front motor mounts you have raise and lower the front of engine with a hoist to gain access to the timing case. A long tedious job and hopefully your valves weren't damaged when the chain let loose if so the whole thing is just not worth it
