Question about 1993 Ford Escort 4 Door
The "casing" is on the front of the Engine where all the Pulleys are.
I strongly suggest you buy a Haynes Manual or Chilton Manual available at most auto parts stores for around $20-$25.
Click on the below Link. It has all the Diagrams for the Timing Chain.
Before clicking, let me know if this helped you.

SOURCE: Timing Belt Replacement+Diagram
No it will NOT bend valves on this particular engine, if it goes out of time. I would replace BOTH the timing belt and the drive belt at the same time, since both are very inexpensive, even from the Ford dealer. Line up both timing marks on both the cam and crank sprockets in the 12 o'clock position. The marks are very easy to see, once you remove the timing belt cover. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: changing a timing belt
timing is no easy task it has to be perfect ! off one way or the other could result in damaging the valve's so if your going to do this yourself takeyour time check and recheck your marks. most auto zones & advance auto's can print you a diagram.if not then they will sell a hanes repair manual.this would be your best way to go they are about $15 also always remember not to over tighten the timing belt. hope this helps thanks for choosing FixYa.

cam shaft timing marks on back of cams ,two slots ,use a flat piece of metal to align .remove no1 spark plug and drop long thin screwdriver down it to bring piston just below tdc,then align cams so both cams are on the rock (valves closed) with knob on back cam aligning with pick up sensor left side between lobes.then bring piston up to tdc and fit belt.turn engine over twice with socket on bottom pulley to make sure no valves clear pistons.Remember to remove flat edge from back of cams i didnt last time and bent my home made tool

I purchased the timing belt and pulley kit for a 1999 zr2 complete instructions came with the pulley set (Dayco brand) also bought the Haynes manual for the escort and not very good directions in it. The one that came from Dayco were very good.
