On these engines, the computer will take care of the timing for you. There are no adjustments to be made. Is this what you are looking for or are you doing another repair?

Where can I get a manual for some model Daihatsu?


take no 1 plug out and watch the rockers for no 1 piston when the rockers are both on the back of the cam , ( valve clearance ) place a piece of wire in the plug hole to touch the top of the piston and as you carefully move the piston towards tdc the wire will move out until you get to a point where it starts to move back in
At the point where the wire moves out or in as you rock the crank at that point the TDC marks should be lining up
That is tdc no1 piston firing
also look at the other rockers and see which one is moving up (exhaust) and the other down (inlet) and that is the next piston to fire

How do you set TDC?


Yes, there's timing marks on all engines. You'll find a mark on the harmonic balancer that the pullys bolt to on crankshaft. Other mark is on a tab bolted to the engine to one side of the balancer. There's a TDC mark stamped into this tab for Top Dead Center of the #1 cylinder. Place these to marks in alignment and your there.

Make sure you put the Timing Chain on correctly, set #1 on TDC, Then your Distributor can only go in one of 2 ways and then you just set the timing with a timing light

How to set timing to t.d.c. on 1992 302 motor


Why would you need to set TDC if you just pulled the Dist. Cap? The TDC mark is on the Harmonic Balancer, sounds like you should let a Pro help you out, Ford also places a 1 where 1 wire should be on the cap, No 1 wire is the front cylinder on the passenger side, with the crankshaft set at TDC the rotor will point to where No 1 wire should be.

I have a 1995 rodeo with a 3.2l sohc motor. I need help setting the timing belt into place. bought vehicle disassembled and replaced both heads with new ones and now am in need of help setting up the...


what do you mean won't line up? is the belt brand new? You should be able to line them up no trouble. mark your sprockets with something when they are at TDC so you know exactly where it is without having to redu this. if you can give me a more detailed description of why the sprockets won't line up that would help. Thanks.

I need to know how to set the distrubtor


The ignition timing is not adjusted with a timing light or with the engine running, and to set the ignition timing follow these procedures.

There is a mark or notch on the distributor housing that the rotor should be pointing to when the engine is on TDC. (Top Dead Center) This "Static" timing is all that matters and the computer will be able to control the timing as long as the ignition rotor is in that position when the engine is at TDC.

1. Place the engine at top dead center.

2. Look under the distributor cap and find where the number one terminal runs under the distributor cap, and where that position on the distributor cap corresponds with the distributor housing, and it should match up to a mark or a notch on the distributor housing (usually has a #6 for 6 cylinder engines or a #8 for 8 cylinder engines) indicating the number one TDC alignment position.

3. With the engine on top dead center the ignition rotor should be pointing to the number one TDC alignment mark or notch that is on the distributor housing, if it is not then loosen up the distributor and turn the distributor until the ignition rotor is pointing to and aligned with the TDC alignment mark or notch on the distributor housing and then tighten down the distributor, the engine should now be "Static" timed. (The more precise that you are aligning the TDC alignment mark with the ignition rotor the better the engine will run, and it will be less likely that there will be a camshaft to crankshaft correlation problem)

If the distributor can not be turned enough to align the ignition rotor with the number one TDC alignment mark on the distributor housing, or the distributor does not set properly and will not allow the installation of the spark plug wires then the distributor is not installed correctly and is most likely a tooth off and it will need to be re-installed correctly. (The distributor should set like it is shown in the firing order diagram when it is properly installed)

Here is a firing order diagram to also help assist you.

Some distributors have the hold down bracket secured onto the distributor housing and the distributor can not be turned into alignment and then tightened down into that position, and these distributors will only fit into the engine and correctly align on "Static" timing one certain way, and when it is correct the distributor hold down bracket bolt can be installed and the TDC alignment mark on the distributor housing will remain properly aligned with the ignition rotor.

1999 Plymouth Breeze 2.0 SOHC I just replaced the timing belt because the old one had not broke but rather had eaten off all the teeth so the timing was off. I set the timing mark on the crank to TDC...


When changing the timing belt you need to place the cam shaft a TDC( clock wise), then rotate the crankshaft to TDC (clockwise), then back off the crankshaft (counter clockwise) THREE TEETH then back (clockwise) 1/2 tooth before TDC place your timing belt arround the crankshaft- water pump- and camshaft finally putting arround the tensioner pulley, holding 25 flbs of torque on the tensioner pulley to get the correct tension then push up on the hydrolic tensioner and tighten and you should have it.... rotate the crankshaft twice, if the camshaft pulley ends back on TDC then you have it correct.

Timing zx2 escort TDC ?


The cams have a notch in the back of them (facing driver's side) in which fits a flat piece of steel to lock the cams in place. The notches are not exactly centered on the camshaft, meaning that it's impossible to set them 180 degrees out, because then the flat piece of steel that is supposed to be inserted to lock the cams in place simply won't fit because the top of the cylinder head will get in the way. I highly recommend getting a Hayne's or Chiltons manual if you don't already have one. It should explain this process under the Timing Belt Replacement instructions. The cam lock tool (that flat piece of steel) can be purchased at ZXturner.com:
