Question about 1991 Eagle Talon
Be fore performing the check I will describe below do a compression check on the engine if the compression is very low (below70 psi or worse at 0) the mechanical timing could be off 180 degrees. You must recheck the mechanical timing, do this by removing the spark plugs and turning the engine over ( in the correct rotational direction ) using a socket wrench on the crankshaft pulley, you must also take the valve cover off to observe the number one piston's intake valves as they move closed, pstop turning motor and proceed to insert a straw into the spark plug hole and the continue to turn the engine until the straw moves up, when it stops moving the engine is in the number 1 top dead center firing stroke, you must now observe the timing mark on the crank pulley it line up with the timing pointer on the front of the case it should point to zero. I f it does that part is ok however you may have the timing mark on the cam shaft sprockets of check the as well. Sometime when a timing belt is done it can be confusing and the belt can be installed 180 degress off or one or both cam spockets can be off one tooth.
