You were supposed to clamp the cams so they don't spin, not to worry, I think they will only go so far, your belt should have marks on it, If it doesn't take it back and get one with marks on it, you need these to line up with the marks on the cams and crank, if they don't line up, I'll give your engine 11 miles before that cams shatter. When all three are in line, you should be all set, pull the pin on the belt tensioner and let her rip, don't forget the water pump, you got in there, do it .

How to set the timing on a 91 acura legend


Ok i got a 91 Legend. The repair manual says to lock the two cams in TDC. So find the blue driver side and red passenger side timing marks on the sprockets facing towards front. Thers a notch yellow lineat about 11 o'clock on the driver side and 1 o'clock on the passenger. line them up and find something to keep them in place. If they move you could have a valve bent by a cylinder so dont force it to much. When moving the sprockets you need to have the crank/oil pump gasket/harmonic balance r pointing up. theres a small arrow on the engine if you have your timing covers off that you line up with a little dimple tiny mak( you might have to remove the crank pully and behind it is the timing pully its half the size of the sprokets and rotates twice for every sproket thet turn. so make sure you keep thing fastened so you can save a lil time. line up the marks on the crank. not totaly sure but i think the front passenger side cylinder is the #1. Just start on the crank then by the tensioner, then driver or left cam, then whater pump then finally the passenger side cam. this one tends to move then when you try and TDC it swing with spring lifter or valve action. Move the passenger cam one tooth advanced clock wise. Clock wise is how a legend engine shoul be turned. If you dont advance the passenger cam a tooth the timing will most likly be one tooth off. This a little trick to put on perfect timing. After you turne the crak six times making sure on every turn that TDC marks line up, if not start over. when all is good you turn the crank nine teeth clock wise. every thing like the timing cover should be on now. locate the marks or three noches they should line up to a blue line on the crank pully. Oh i forget you can take the spark plugs out to help turn the the engine. oh you could also use an air compressor in the spark plugs to lift a valve or something if it falls on a piston. You will need 19mm socket a ether home made tool or the holder tool( ebay $25) or ( home depo 11/2 galvined pipe with hexagon shape $12.50). Alsow a 10mm, 5/16 or actually 8mm and 12mm. Thats all of the top of my head. Well i just did it few days ago. Good luck and if you have the time and the tools of confidence save your self a few weeks pay but if something aint right stop recheck or you might need to losen the rocker arms in the engine their 8mm and six up in there and keep the screews on lose lift entire rocker assembly. two turns at a time on every bolt till there all lose fift as unit be care full or it can fall a part in few dozen pieces. This may only need to be done if you have something hitting and the air wont put it in place. Peace

Where are the timing marks on a 1994 honda civic 1.5


On the Cam gear are three marks. On the face of the gear it should say "up", then you have three marks one at 3 o'clock one at 7 o'clock one at 9 o'clock. the one at 7 should align up with a mark on the block. Some have a raised semicircle and you line up the 7 o'clock mark on the cam with the far left hand end of that semicircle. Now on the crack end you have a mark at the 2 o'clock position and it lines up with a mark on the block. Do not turn the crank or the cam independent of one another, as the valves can be bent. Remove the spark plugs to ease turning the engine when needed. The engine will turn counterclockwise. Remove all necessary left hand front wheel, inner fender splash guard, covers, top engine mount. turn the engine until number 1 cyl. is at TDC compression stroke, and all timing marks align as noted. Remove the lower crankshaft bolt and pulley, and lower belt cover. Loosen tensioner bolt and push it out of your way and remove the belt. Put on the new timing belt in this order, crank sprocket, cam sprocket, water pump sprocket, tensioner. Belt must be tight on no tensioner side. Push the tensioner against the belt. Turn the engine 4 turns counterclockwise, until the timing marks realign, loosen the tensioner and turn the engine again 3 teeth, torque the tensioner to 30 flbs. reinstall all the mounts and covers. all should be good.

I have a Isuzu rodeo 1994 3.1 in I can't find the


The timing marks are stamped into the head and in the cam pulley, also on the crank and the case, find them and paint them white so you can see them, the new belts have the marks on the belt, they will line up, If they don't , you got it wrong, You can do this without spinning the cams or crank and losing the marks, as long as the belt marks line up, you will be all set. Put the pin in the tensioner before removing the belt. Did you change the water pump? And I think the engine is 3.2L. Get it in there and pull the pin, It should be right on. Turn over the engine by hand a couple times to make sure it comes around on the marks. If it is wrong, it will go about 11 or 12 miles, and you will need a new engine. Hope this helps.

Change sepertine belt on engine.


it is not that fun, you need to have 1/4 inch tools, 10mm socket 8mm socket, 12 mm socket,18mm socket. and wrenches to match. you need to support car on jack stands and remove pass tire. Go to your local auto parts store and get a manual first. as the valve timing is very critical in the installation process !!!!!!!!!!! if this timing is not done exactly you will cause severe engine damage to valves and pistons. read manual and read again then assemble it right the first time as there is no room for error. Belt is 30 -50 $$$ depending where you go.

Timing belt geo metro 95 hatchback


roll the crankshaft pulley around until u get the mark to line up with 0 or TDC. once u get the cover off mark the cam sproket to the head with whiteout and mark the crank gear to the block also. (in case they move on you. loosen tensioner and pry to one side.tighten tensioner bolt and remove the belt. install new belt and get the slack to move toward the tensioner side. (u may have to move the cam slightly to allow all the slack to go toward the tensioner. then move it back to the mark, making sure the crank didnt move. loosen tensioner bolt and let it spring toward the belt and apply pressure with yr hand a little more snug while u tightn bolt. then rotate the crankshaft 2 revolutions by hand and your marks should line back up. if the marks are more than 1/2 tooth off u must re do it!

Replaced water pump and now i need to know how to reset timing


I hop you are replacing the belt and tensioner/ idler pulleys. the crank pulley has a notch approx 12'oclock. the cams will be marked rear cam "I" and front cam "E" .. put both letters at 12 o clock. there should be a notch at the top of the cover for the cams at 12 o clock. thats all there is to it. to tension the belt, after you have it all timed up. put some tension on it, tighten tensioner bolt, turn the engine 2 revolutions, then double check your marks, push down with you thumb between the cam sprokets with 20 lbs of force, the belt should delfect about 10MM if its too loose, loosen the tensione rbolt an dturn it tighter a little more an dck tension again. If you get it too tight it will whine and wear the cam journals, too loose and timing will not be correct.

Changed the water pump, but the timing is off...1994 rodeo


Remember how engine crankshaft has to work with camshaft.
Normally both rollers should have notches. Painted mark could be correct (but is not original notches should point to each other. check this after tensioning. also crank camshaft without belt to see what it does when. That will assure

Timing belt alignment


A factory service manual would help, but I'm assuming that if you had one, you probably wouldn't be on this site.

To set the timing, you need to first perform the obvious: remove the accessory drive belts, cam pulley covers, and engine fan and hub. Next you'll need to rotate the engine by hand until the timing marks on the camshaft sprockets and crankshaft are aligned with their corresponding stationary marks. The 0 degree mark on the lower timing belt cover is the timing mark for the crankshaft pulley. There is a mark (small, vertical formed indentation) for the left camshaft pulley on the backing plate behind the pulley near the 1 o` clock position. The same mark exists for the right camshaft pulley only it is on the backing plate near the 8 o`clock position (making it difficult to see). With the crankshaft placed at the zero mark, you can observed where the timing discrepancy exists.

(TIP: Once the right camshaft timing is properly lined up, etch an additional mark on the pulley's face and the backing plate at the 12 o`clock position. This will make it easier to align the pulley for furture adjustments and repairs)

To set the timing correctly, move the crankshaft pulley to 12 deg. BTDC. Being careful to not disturb the position of the crankshaft once it has been moved to that position, remove the crankshaft pulley, lower timing belt cover, timing belt tensioner, and timing belt. Compress the timing belt tensioner and if the original ring pin isn't available to retain the tensioner a small allen wrench can be used to achieve the same results. Line up both camshaft marks and reinstall the timing belt and timing belt tensioner (do not remove the timing belt tensioner tool used to maintain the tensioner piston in a compressed position). When installing the timing belt, be sure to allow the least amount of slack to exisit between the left camshaft pulley and the crankshaft sprocket, but without moving the pulleys.

Next, remove the timing belt tensioner piston retention tool and mount the lower timing belt cover and crankshaft pulley (without fully installing them). Rotate the crankshaft pulley to the 0 deg. mark. If done correctly, moving the crankshaft pulley from 12 deg. BTDC to 0 deg. will remove all remaining slack from the timing belt assembly and the camshaft pulleys and crankshaft pulleys will be lined up with their corresponding marks. Once proper timing has been achieved, install all removed parts.

(Another TIP: I hope it's not necessary, but in case it is, I'll remind you that proper torque of all bolts are necessary as this is an all aluminum engine. Stripping out bolts holes due to over-tightening bolts occurs very easily and become very annoying to deal with [e.g. alternator belts not being able to be tightened completely and constantly squealing every few days, etc.])

How to replace timing belt on 1997 kia sportage


you have 2 sprokets to worry about the top two and crank gear, the crank gear has knocht on it and index on block ( towards back of gear visible from top) place on tdc mark ( top dead center), install the timing belt on this gear first then secure it with a piece of hose or anything that fits in between housing and belt to secure belt from moving from gear) then align the right side sproket on "E" for exhaust cam at top marks on cover and sprocket, then install belt over that sprocket, finally align left side sprocket "I" for intake to the top mark and install belt not too tight or it will make noise just make sure it is firm. now to double check from left to right with you standing in front of vehicle you should have left cam sprocket with "I" for intake to the top and right sproket with "E" for exhaust to the top. having bottom gear on tdc (top dead center mark) and all marks lined up with belt installed and proper tension secured, turn engine over twice and make sure marks meet in the same place then put everything back together. ( recommend you replace both idler and tension pulleys and check water pump, replace if needed or you'll be back.- this procedure goes the same to spectra, sephia, sportage, you will not damage the engine on these vehicles if belt goes out except rio. if timing belt goes out on the rio it will need an engine, if lucky just head. recommended replacement on all is every 60k miles) goo luck tightening the power steering drive belt when you put everything back together, just use a long bar to pry and good leverage. and a second hand comes in handy.
