How to setup the timing chain for BMW


The sadder thing is you have a 740. align both cam pulley per the book or where you marked them before you took the chain off. They're marked in relation to top dead center of the #1 cylinder and crankshaft.

Didn't do that beforehand.......uh oh. Tow it to dealer, bring one wheelbarrow full of fresh cash. Drive away in about 6 hours.

Timing belt removal and putting the car back into time


The BMW M30 6-cyinder engine does not use a timing belt. This engine uses a standard timing chain. To time the crank and cam; There is a timing pointer on the lower timing cover at about the 12-o'clock position (imagine the engine being straight up, not laid over toward the passenger side). This lines up with the mark on the vibration damper that is marked O/T. For the cam gear; position the gear so that the gear to cam alignment dowel is at about 7 to 8-o'clock (again, imagine that the engine is straight up/down). At this point, the four bolts should be positioned at 12, 3, 6 and 9-o'clock. The 9 and 3 bolts should be perfectly parallel with the upper surface of the cylinder head and te 12 and 6 bolts should make a straight line right down through the center of the crankshaft.

Timing Dpecs for Toyota Supra 87 6 cylinder


1987 non-turbo: 10 deg Before Top Dead Center (BTDC) @700 rpm
1987 Turbo: 10 deg BTDC @650 rpm.

To set the timing, you will need to connect a jumper wire between terminals E1 and TE1 on the diagnostic terminal. This diagnostic terminal is located just aft of the engine compartment fuse box. It is a black plastic box marked "diagnostic" on the cover, which flips open to reveal the terminals inside. There is a diagram on the inside of the cover which explains the terminal positions. On the Turbo model, you need to remove the forward section of the engine cover to gain access to the number one spark plug wire.

Transfer case removal and installation


   You need to remove the skid plate/crossmember (6 3/4 bolts at the frame and 3 nuts at the trans mount.). Support the trans first with a jack and a block of wood before removing. Remove the rear drive shaft from the differential and pull it out of the transfer case. Unbolt the front shaft from the transfer case only and wire to the side with a coat hanger.Disconnect the vacuum connector from the top and the speedo cable. Unbolt the shifter and bracket (tricky operation). unbolt the transfer case from the trans and pry it rearward with a floor jack under it. Reverse operation to install. The 87 used a different case than the 231 from the factory but the 231 will work. You may have a concern with the length of the shift linkage. If you do anyone with a welder can extend it for you. Good luck hope this helps.
