If this is with the 3.0 V6; each cam sprocket will have a small dimple on it, these align with marks (small lines) pressed in to the dust shield.

I hope this may have assited you,

Timing marks for an 03 mitsubishi lancer


the marks on the cam shafts are directly vertical at the top in line with a mark in the back of the housing the balance shaft timing mark is at 9 oclock position
the crank shaft timing mark is at 10 oclock position ( lining up with a pointer) and the oil pump mark is also at the 10 oc;ock position lining up with a pointer
( to check the position of the oil pump sprocket remove a plug -shown in the book -and insert .30dia pointed screw driver (5/16 philips ) to at least 2.4 "
if it cannot be inserted to this depth move the oil pump sprocket until it can)
the process of assembly is -:
install the timing belt to the sprockets and pulleys in the following order , retaining the belt to the camshaft sprockets by the use of suitable binding clips ( clothes pegs etc)
crankshaft sprocket
oil pump sprocket
guide pulley
exhaust camshaft sprocket
intake camshaft sprocket
tension pulley
to help install the belt the auto tensioner on the lh side should be removed
all of this information will be included in a workshop manual covering lancer engines for the years listed and will also include all tensions for the bolts --If you do not have the workshop manual then it is STRONGLY recommended that you obtain one
information from autodata belt installation manual lancer 2.0 l

1987 toyota 22re. head was taken off by siomeone who did not mark or align anything. I need to know how to get it on the compression stroke.


With the head off, the bottom end doesn't know compression from exhaust from squat. The crank just keeps pushing the pistons up and down. You set the #1 cylinder at the top of travel, the mark on the pointer scale must be at zero, then when you have the head on with the camshaft sprocket on its mark, and the timing belt or chain on, you should be at TDC on the compression stroke. To verify, both valves on #1 should be closed-the camshaft lobes for #1 should be more or less pointing up-away from the valves.
See? The valve train is what determines compression stroke vs. exhaust stroke. On compression, both valves are closed. On the exhaust stroke, the exhaust valve will be open. As long as you get the camshaft sprocket on the right mark and the crank sprocket at zero-or on its mark-the timing should be right.

How do i set camshafts on 1999 duvil northstar


Remove camshaft covrs
Remove front cover
Remove or fully retract all three timing chain tensioners
Remove oil pump
Primary and secondary chain guides should remain in place. Rotate crankshaft until sprocket drive key is at about 1 o'clock position.
Set crankshaft and intermediate shaft sprockets into primary drive chain with their timing marks asjacent to each other.
Install crankshaft and intermediate sprockets over their respective shafts. Rotating crankshaft as necessary to engage crankshaft key in sprocket without changing the timing mark relationship.
Install Flywheel Holder Tool (J-39411) to lock crankshaft in position. Install intermediate shaft sprocket retaining bolt and torque to specifications.
Route secondary chain for left cylinder head over inner row of intermediate shaft teeth.
Route secondary drive chain over chain guide, and install exhaust cam sprocket to chain so camshaft drive pin engages the sprocket notch marked "LE" (Left Exhaust).
There dhould be no slack in the lower section of the chain, and the camshaft drive pin must be perpendicular (90 degrees) to the cylinder head surface.
Install the intake camshaft sprocket into the chain so the sprocket notch marked "LI" (Left Intake) engages camshaft drive pin, while drive pin remains perpendicular to the head face. Minor adjustments can be made to camshaft position to get pin to engage by using a wrench on the hex cast into the camshaft.
Install sprocket retainer bolts and torque to specification.
Repet steps as above to install the right secondary chain to the right camshafts. The right camshaft sprockets are marked "RE" and "RI". In addition, the RE sprocket must contain the camshaft position sensor pickup.

How to reset timeing on a 1991 chevy lumina 3.1


Timing is not resettable by the user, as the computer controls this based on knock or no knock conditions which will advance or ****** ignition timing for optimum performance.

The valve timing is something that is set when installing the timing chain:

2.5L, 2.8L and 3.1L Engines Fig. 4: Timing chain and sprocket removal - 2.5L engine 88003ga8.gif
Fig. 5: Timing chain and sprocket removal - 1996 3.1L engine shown 88003gb5.gif
Fig. 6: You must use a suitable puller to remove the crankshaft sprocket 88003gb6.gif
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the timing chain front cover assembly, as outlined earlier in this section.
  3. Rotate the crankshaft until the timing marks on the crankshaft sprocket and camshaft sprocket locator hole are aligned to the marks on the engine block or timing chain dampener. This is the No. 1 piston at TDC (No. 4 firing position).
  4. Unfasten the camshaft sprocket retaining bolt/screw, then remove the camshaft sprocket and the timing chain. NOTE: If the camshaft sprocket does not come off easily, a light blow on the lower edge of the sprocket with a rubber mallet should loosen the sprocket.
  5. Remove the crankshaft sprocket using tool J 23444-A or equivalent puller.
  6. If necessary, remove the timing chain dampener retaining bolts, then remove the dampener. To install:
  7. Install the crankshaft sprocket using tool J 38612 until it the sprocket is fully seated on the flange of the crankshaft nose. Apply a coat of Molykote® or equivalent, to the sprocket thrust surface.
  8. Hold the camshaft sprocket with the chain hanging down, and align the marks on the camshaft and crankshaft sprockets.
  9. If removed, install the timing chain damper to the engine block.
  10. Align the dowel in the camshaft with the dowel hole in the camshaft sprocket. Install the camshaft sprocket and chain, use the camshaft sprocket bolts to draw the sprocket on to the camshaft. Tighten the sprocket bolts to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).
  11. Lubricate the timing chain with engine oil.
  12. Install the front cover assembly, as outlined earlier in this section.
  13. Connect the negative battery cable.
