Question about 1992 Ford Escort 4 Door
I have a 1992 Ford Capri that has blown a head gasket. I am replacing the head myself but have hit a snag. I can't find the timing marks and, even though I have removed every bolt I can find from the timing cover it still wont come off. Is it held on by a pulley wheel or something else I have missed?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Sometimes there are no "timing marks" usually the best way of doing it is to align the bottom timing marks on the crank and make sure that it aligns the cam marks, which might be something as simple as a little hole on the cam pulley. if you have dived into this and don't have a lot of experience (not trying to be mean) one the best things to do is to get a your hands on a haynes manual, they will have a complete and total breakdown of the headgasket removal/reinstallation procedure, documented in better detail then i cold ever give, in addition to including pictures. So look for the drill holes, or tiny raised dots for the timing marks, sometimes the crank may just have a small groove on the outside edge. make sure everything is de-greased and clean so that its easy to see....I hope this helps to some degree. Best of luck
