Not unless you've had distributor out, or timing belt/chain replaced and need to align everything.

Yes...but not only on top but also in it's firing position. You do not want to be 180 degrees off. Both intake and exhaust valves will be closed when you have your number 1 piston in it's firing stroke, if you are 180 degrees off, your exhaust valve will be open.

Yes number one piston must be at the top of it's stroke valves closed and with the harmonic balancer on it set to 0 degrees on the crank, slide distributor where one tooth off of #1 as it slides in the helical gear will move it one notch, you will have to figure out which way and mark #1 on the distributor so the rotor points to it when you put it in.

No it should not make a differance considering the engine will be constantly rotating, because the engine must be on and at normal operating temperature to set the timing.

How to set Valve clearence in Mitsubish Lance 1987 Engin model G15B


When Piston 1 is at TDC, (timing points inline), both valves are closed and there should be a gap, say 12 thou on exhaust and 8 thou on inlet. Turn the engine until Piston 2 is at TDC, (both valves closed as with number 1) and adjust, keep going until all pistons have had the clearance set.

I have a 2001 Isuzu Vehicross 3.5 engine. Which piston do I set the timing on of which must be at TDC? Is it the number one piston or number two piston?


number 1 piston should be at top dead center. remove the number 1 plug and insert a straw, or a soft object in hole on top of piston. this way when it is all the way up and just before it starts to go down you will know. if it has a dist. make sure rotor button is facing number 1 plug wire. good-day !

Changed intake manifold but didn't mark yhe distrubutor. how can i correct this on 1999 tahoe


this motors are hard to get set right even if you marked the distributor for the computer to be able to function right and control the the engine right the distributor needs to be set between -1 and + 1 this leaves no room for error and final placement is usually done with a diagnostic computer

but what you need first is how to get it back in the ball park they will run being off quite a bit but just not very well once you get it up and running u need to take it to someone or somewhere that has a diagnostic computer

Ok now what you need to do is get #1 cylinder on TDC(top dead center ) of the compression stoke put a compression tester into cyl #1 Turn motor over my hand (use socket and ratchet) on crank pulley bolt until you start to read compression on gauge take gauge out and contiune to turn motor over slowly until number piston is at top now put distributor in so when u put the cap back on the rotor is pointing at the number one post on the distributor cap

NOTE: the distributor cap on these motors look at the bottom of the cap you notice where the post for the number 1 cyl is not directly under where u put on the number one plug wire when lining up rotor aim for the post under the cap not where u put the plug wire

How do you set the timeing on a 91 ltd crown victoria?


on all cars bring piston to top dead center on the #1 piston... install distributor with rotor cap pointing 2 the number one position on the cap , install wires turn car on and take a timing light (must have tool) and use as per direction, set timing by turning the distributor till it reaches the right number or tab see front of motor crank pulley and tab on block. if you have a crank trigger the timing will be factory set and if u install new distributor , it will set automatically. if this is to confusing u need to see a mechanic .sorry

I can't find the timing mark on the harmonic balancer. it's a 2000 ford mustang 3.8ltr. automatic. there is no tdc mark. or scribedline.the only thing stamped on the balancer is a number and code. the...


If the balancer does not show the mark, bring the number one piston to TDC. Do this by pulling the #1 plug out; (may take two people) use a screwdriver or something of the sort and insert it partially into the #1 plug hole. Manually crank the engine over until you feel the piston hit the screwdriver and let it push the screwdriver out. If the screwdriver goes back in, just back it up a little. Put the plug back in, pull the distributor cap off (if distributor is installed) and see that the rotor is set to the #1 plug on the cap. If so, you should be able to start the car. Use the distrubutor to fine tune the timing. Idle should be between 800-1000 (about 900-950 roughly).

If you have any further questions, please let me know.

Timing on a 350 chey engine


take out number 1 spark plug and put your finger as to block the hole ,have a friend bump the starter till you feel air rush out real fast / called the compression stroke when it does stop and look down the top center for timing marks on the pulley and line them up on the timing cover then place the distributor in place as so the rotor is pointing at the #1 piston location, basically the dr. front corner and start there, timing order is 1..8..4..3..6..5..7..2.. now if you get all these in right 1..3..5..7 are on the drivers side front to back and 2..4..6..8 on the passengers bank front to back and the distributor turns clockwise .good luck hope this helps you.
