SOURCE: need to set timing marks on a 1986 plymouth reliant

To save some time I'll guess and say it's the SOHC.
1). Make sure the #1 piston is on the compression stroke @ Top Dead Center. You can find the compression stroke by pulling the #1 spark plug and putting your finger over the hole, while a friend bumps the engine. When you feel air come out of the plug hole, your on the compression stroke. Then point the rotor to #1 on the cap, by turning the crankshaft by hand. Then do the timing marks.........
2). The camshaft gear: There should be four large holes and one small hole, the small hole should face perfectly straight up. You can use 2 of the larger holes, one on the left and one on the right from the camshaft attaching bolt, to help line it up correctly. By looking through them, horizontally line them up with the head.
3). The crankshaft gear and the intermediate shaft gear should have a dimple on one of their teeth. Face them to each other.
4). Make sure nothing moves, when installing the belt.
5). Fire it up, before you put everything back together. When it fires, let it run for about 30 seconds to let the belt align itself. Then check all your marks again, to make sure nothing moved.
6). Put it back together.
7). I sincerely hope that this information helped you to get r dun. Best wishes and God Bless.

SOURCE: my 1986 plymouth reliant car runs very rough,

the MAP or Manifold Absolute Pressure sensor is just one of the components that send signals to the on-board computer.fault codes are stored and can be 'read' with a diagnostic tool.or by using a key on, key off sequence described in detail in a repair manual.

I just replace the fuel pump,filter and carburator on my 1983 plymouth reliant.it will turn over and start but wont say started what could be the problem


Possible float is sticking in carb. Tap side of float bowl with screwdriver and see if that helps. If not, I suggest checking the float level and make sure it is adjusted at the right height.

check for vacume leaks first. you stated that the carb was loose and you tightened it. you probably need to replace the gasket beneath it (thats why the carb seemed loose)

CORRECT TIMING PROCEDURE


the timing light is used only to see if you installed correctly, crank & cam have aero marks make sure when you align those aeros they stay on position when you tight the tension they might move so set it a little off counterclockwise so when you tight it it will come to the right position hope this helps you.

CORRECT IGNITION TIMING PROCEDURE


I don't know who posted that but yes you need to use a timing light. Unplug the coolant temp sensor and set the timing to what the underhood sticker says with a timing light.
