Question about 1995 Mercury Tracer
How can I align these two cam & crankshafts on a 1995 mercury tracer 1.9 The tensioner came loose and now the timing is off ! now, I do not know how to set the timing back. I do have the CHILTON repair manual but it ONLY shows how to put the timing belt back on the pulley. It says to ALIGN THE TIMING MARK ON THE CYLINDER HEAD, so do I just turn the camshaft sprocket and line-up the arrow with the hole on the cylinder head? and if so, what tool is needed to turn the cam and the crankshafts. Also, do I need to keep the belt on the pulleys when I turn the shafts? please help me out
This is the same as a Ford Escort 1.9, the #1 cylinder should be all the way up. To confirm- the crak shift mark should be on zero which is Crank Shift Center- THe camshift sproket should align with the headmark. Make sure both marks don't move. Align the belt- not too tight , not to loose
