Question about 1990 Toyota Pickup
Completely stripped it is and the positions of course are lost and am getting conflicting reports on the timing positions of the cam shaft, pump and flywheel for refitting the new one. It has two idler wheels ( one is the adjustment, the other fixed and on the passenger side Australian ). Not sure where to go now without some real advice. Thanks

im not sure on that particular vehicle but most trucks have a fuel pump shut off if the vehicle gets hit or is jarred real hard look in your book for the fuel pump reset button it is a inertia switch

SOURCE: Trying to set timing belt (new )
Be very careful with this timing belt change.
The key setting is to get the crankshaft and camshaft properly synchronized !
I believe this is an "interference" engine. If the crankshaft and camshaft are not set properly the valves will hit the pistons and be bent ! That would destroy the engine.
DO NOT TURN OVER THE ENGINE UNTIL THIS IS SET CORRECT
No you will not hear the valves hitting the pistons - you will hear the engine turning over faster than normal because you have lost compression.
The engine has marks on the gears and pulleys that will align with marks on the engine block at TDC which should be done before the timing belt is removed ! If you have did not do that and either the crankshaft or camshaft has moved, you have a problem. You can get a manual from the library, auto supply store, eBay or a manual seller.
Putting on the timing belt could use an extra set of hands- when you line up
the marks and the engine is at TDC, the injection pump has some spring tension
and will jump back one tooth. this means you have to hold the pump pulley in
place while putting on the belt. so an extra set of hands makes things much

SOURCE: How can I fix the timing belt
There are alignment marks on the cam pulley. As scspriggs states...get a cheap manual. Most show a good picture of the alignment marks, and the correct alignment underneath the plastic cover.
