The 3L 24V straight 6 engine has timing marks on the crankshaft pulley & on the camshaft pulleys. The crankshaft pulley aligns with a mark on the front of the block, the camshafts align with two marks on the plastic cover on the top. The ignition timing, the fuel/air mixture & the valve timing are not adjustable. The 3L engine is known as an "Interference" engine, in other words, if the cam belt breaks or is not set up correctly, the pistons 'meet' the valves, with dire consequences!!!!!
