Take it to a trained mechanic that works on isuzu's. If you have never put a belt on one of these do not attempt it.The cam pulley turns aver three times to one rotation of the camshafts, no marks.

Diagram of markings on timing belt

I repaired a 3.1 4JG2 but the mechanic doesn´t know how to set the injection time. I can see the marks on the crank and camshaft as well as the inyection pulley but if I try to install the belt "just like that", the injection goes wrong with explosions and white smoke. Can anyone help please? Is there any other procedure to follow to time the inyection?
thanks in advance

Timing mark's on isuzu trooper 3.0 td . changed head gasket now engine turn's over as if no compression .

The cam pulley notch goes in line with the mark on the front cam bearing cap and the crankshaft pulley goes at 12 o'clock - its got a tiny mark on the back lip that lines up with the mark on the cover .

Did you take the cams off in one lump or split them ? if you did come back on here for how to time them up .

Replaced timing belt need do you start at TDC to

For all timing belts you should start with the crank sprocket pointing at TDC and the cam sprockets pointing at their designated marks.

You should be able to mark the old belt and and put corresponding marks on the cam and crank pulleys, then remove the old belt and transfer the marks to the new belt and install it.

Personally I would buy a manual as this would provide you with a step by step guide to performing the repair.

I am not positive that this is an interference engine, it looks like it is to me. If you are not accurate in your timing you will cause severe engine damage.

I need a diagram to sincronize the timing belt of my isuzu tropper 3.2 sohc

if this is 6VD1 engine it has single cam gear each head, but is still a 2 cams per head, engine
if belt has broke or you have turned any gear you must remove rocker covers to check positions of camshafts front lobes are in certain spot as well as timming mark on belt driven cam gear to cover
this cam gear is a 3:1 ratio (3 turns of cam gear = 1 turn of cams)

Can't find timing marls on 1993 trooper

that motor should be a 3.2 litre... 6VD1 there are timing marks for the cams and crankshaft... one is to the left of the left cam... the other is to the right of the right cam.... and the marks for the crankshaft pulley are at the 9 and 3 position on a clock.

the 2.3 litre appears to be a single cam

Timing isuzu trooper

I just changed the belt in my 2002 Trooper. The new timing belt will have marks on it probably thin white lines. these line will match up with the two cam gears (top right and left) and the crank pulley. The three white lines are spaced differently and the belt will only match up one way. Put the belt next to the existing belt if you can before you start to get an idea how it all lines up. The cam gears and crank all have either a raised line on the metal or a paint mark. By the way, this is a non-interference motor so you won't have to worry about punching a hole in your pistons if you get it wrong. The good thing is as long as you get all three lines lined up, it doesn't matter if the pulleys move (and they will) This job is a two person job and the hardest part is getting the belt tensioner nested and a pin inserted as a keeper. Use a knife and cut the old belt off then unbolt the belt tensioner. Use a vice to slowly compress the tensioner and then insert an allen wrench in the keeper hole. It will be easier if you use small needle nose vice grips to hold the belt in place on each cam pulley. you should be able to finish this job in 3 - 4 hours as long as you know what you are doing and own some metric tools. Good luck.
