What's your problem?installing heads


place crank at TDC. turn cam until all the valves over number one are closed. your valve train will now be in time. however there should be timing marks on the cam gear and crank gear, with the motor at TDC align the marks and your valve train will be in time. you dont have to have your valve adjusted, you can either watch you pushrods move or watch the valves move in an overhead cam application

When the timing chain breaks does it usually damage anything else or will replacing the timing chain and gears take care of the problem?


When the timing chain breaks the cam quits turning. Any valves that are open, remain open.
If the motor is turned over trying to start it or bump starting it in gear, the pistons come up and
hit the open valves. Bent valves are common. If it is a 4 cylinder only a couple valves will be open
at a time so you may damage 2 or 4 (there are usually 2 per cylinder so a 4 cylinder has 8).
You could replace the chain, make sure the timing marks align with eahother and the chain but
just getting the cam and crankshaft to alignment could cause some damage. Good luck. I did
it to mine once. Bent 4 of the 8 and had to pull the head, sent to the machine shop and reassemble.
I tried to bump start mine down a 2 mile hill. Ohh well! It's fixable.

I have found the crankshaft marks but I cannot find marks to align the to over head cams on my car, the dohc are run from 1 wheel. I am trying to re-align the timing belt as i think they have gone off.


if it's a dual overhead cam then each head has two cams and two pully's, a single overhead cam engine has one cam and one pulley on each head. if the belt has more than 60,000 miles on it you should replace it. you need to find out if the engine is an interference engine or not to determine the level of damage caused if the belt has jumped or slipped. your overhead cam timing marks are usually on the cam faces and the backing plate behind the cam or sometimes there's two marks on the cam that you align with the surface of the head behind them. the first thing you need is a diagram of the belt routing and mark positions because timing marks are very important especially on an interference engine. starting or cranking an interference engine with the timing marks misaligned can bend all your valves or even punch holes in your pistons! so proper alignment is crucial, good luck.

Timing belt


all marks need to be aligned to 12 o'clock driver cam should align with notch in cover,crank sprocket also at 12 o'clock there is a straight line on reluctor of crank gear ,this line matches a notch on the oil pump where the crank sensor fits,right cam at 12 line should match camcase where it meets cylinder head

Looking for cambelt timing marks/ positions please, Twin cam engine Thanks Kevin


these bend valves if belt breaks while running
Align the timing marks on the camshaft gears to the notches on the camshaft cover, using the intake gear mark for the intake gear and the exhaust gear mark for the exhaust gear.
Align the mark on the crankshaft gear with the
notch at the bottom of the rear timing belt cover.

I need the timing marks for a 2000 escort with sigle over head cam.


The timing marks are a arrow on your cam gear, and a dot on your cylinder head; align them.

Your crank gear has a tab, and the engine has a groove; align them.

After aligning the marks and putting your timing belt on, turn the engine 2 complete turns to insure the marks are still aligned; As long as the marks still align, you're done.

I hope this helps you, and if you need further assistance let me know.

Timing


There is no timing adjustment "at all" for a 1999 escort. If your timing is out, your timing belt has slipped and needs to be replaced.

To change the timing belt first disconnect your negative battery cable, then place the right side of the vehicle on a jack stand and remove the right front tire. Remove the plastic cover inside the wheel well to expose the harmonic balancer. Remove the serpentine belt (standard 3/8" rachet will set in the belt tensioner to relieve tension). Remove the harmonic balancer (19mm). Place a jack under the engine on the right side of the vehicle, then remove the engine mount from the top of the fender well, (17mm deep well socket and 17mm wrench required) it is not necessary to remove the mount from the side of the engine. Remove the timing cover, (10mm) it has 6 bolts and nuts. Loosen the timing belt tensioner, (10mm) then use a 3/8" rachet in the belt tensioner to relieve the tension. While relieving the tension slide the timing belt off of the cam gear.

To position the new belt, the cam gear has a arrow on it, and the cylinder head has a small dot. Align the arrow with dot, and make sure it is aligned (the arrow must point up). The crank gear has a notch and the engine has a groove to align the notch. Again, make sure the notch and groove are aligned (they again will be up). Place the new timing belt in position around the crank gear, the water pump and belt tensioner and leave the slack at the top. Again use a 3/8" ratchet to relieve any tension from the belt tensioner, and slide the belt on to the cam gear. Place a slight bit of tension on the belt and tighten the belt tensioner. Use the 19mm bolt from the harmonic balancer and turn the engine 2 complete turns and verify that the cam gear and crank gear are in their proper position and aligned with the dots and notches. After 2 complete turns of the engine, and verifying everything is still aligned, re-assemble in reverse. No further adjustment is necessary.

Note:There is no timing adjustment for this vehicle, and if you are not properly aligned on the cam gear and crank gear it will not run properly.
