Ok, what degree before tdc is the spill timing on No one piston?


if you are talking inline fuel pump for a diesel engine ( only unit that allows for spill timing) you set the injection mark on the pointer and spill shut off is at that mark
with diesels there are a number of differences as to the different makes of engines as some are 15 degrees up to 22 degrees but they are all set on the INJ mark
talk with a specialist diesel shop as to the degrees for your make of engine as it is critical to prevent engine damage

I have changed on spark plugs and coils also my crank sensor in my 2002 Nissan Sentra I don't know if you have to put the car top dead center or what when you put the crank sensor in can somebody let me...


If you have the book to your sentra, it should state how many degrees to set the crank shaft sensor. TDC should be acquired first and made sure it's not BTDC...then the book should indicate to move the sensor "usually" not many degrees to be micro adjusted. The sensor should take over from there. It may be that the sensor is trying to compensate for too many degrees out of its spectrum for adjustment. So if the books says 4, 5, or 6 degrees past TDC then you should place the TDC first and then move the crank which will move the cam shaft by the degrees indicated before you place the sensor. This is an example ok, so make sure you read the specs for your car on the chitons book or a Haynes book. Let me know if this was useful. GE

I am confused by timing degrees. what i need to know does the timing light need to be at 0 to show tdc or are there different degree for different cars?


on your vehicle you just need to know that you align the timing marks together... this is typically at 0 degrees... that may be confusing you is the idea of "ignition" timing which on this vehicle is not adjustable....

AGAIN... just align you timing marks and you are cool

Trying to get timing set i can get top dead center but not sue where sparks plug wire go i know the firing order nothing seems to work htis is on a 1963 ford falcon 170 cid


Here is the firing order diagram for that engine, and the ignition points should have a gap of .025 in. or a 35 degrees dwell angle, and the spark plug gap is .034 in., and the ignition timing should be set at 6 degrees before TDC with a standard transmission, and 12 degrees before TDC with an automatic transmission. If the distributor was removed then it will have to be installed correctly, and let me know if you require any further assistance.

I want ti install timing chain in 350 chevy. What TDC marks are used if i use Zoom timing chain whith 3 key way and i use 4 degrees adv. I want TDC with the 4 degrees at crank. I know i put both dots at...


The timing chain is not that fine, nor do you care about advance with the chain. A single link on the chain is more like 15 degrees, and you will have no trouble deciding which is the best fit.
TDC is always 0, and never 4 degrees advanced.
It is the ignition that is advanced, not the chain. To advance the breathing you would need to either change the cam, or get a variable chain sprocket. But again, you can not tell 4 degrees when putting a chain on. It changes that much at least when you take the slack out.

When setting the ignition timing on a 1991 ford ranger 3.0 were dose the rotor need to point, after number one or before number one? the engine is on top dead center


The engine timing markers down on the harmonic balancer/crankshaft pulley should be aligned with the timing indicator on the engine block to "0" degrees when the engine is in the compression stroke for the #1 cylinder, and this is TDC or "Top Dead Center". When something blows out of the spark plug hole that only means that the piston is coming up on TDC, but the crankshaft will still have to be turned until the timing markers are at "0" degrees. You should be sure that you do know how to properly align the timing marks to "0" degrees, and the timing marks must be set at "0" degrees before the distributor can successfully be installed.

Be certain that the timing marks are set at "0" degrees and on the compression stroke for the #1 cylinder, or the timing will be 180 degrees off when you install the distributor. This has to be precise and guessing will not get the distributor properly clocked in so that the ignition timing can be correctly set.

Once you are certain that the timing is set to "0" degrees "TDC", then mark the distributor housing where the #1 position on the distributor cap will be when the cap is installed on the distributor, so that the distributor housing shows a reference mark where the #1 position is, then the distributor should be installed so that the ignition rotor is pointing directly at the #1 position on the distributor housing, or just before the #1 position mark according to the rotation of the ignition rotor. The distributor should be able to turn and point the ignition rotor on either side of the #1 position mark to provide plenty of timing advance or ****** so that the ignition timing can properly be adjusted to specifications after the engine has been started.

Be sure that you follow the proper timing procedure for that vehicle and remove any timing spout connectors that are described in the set timing procedures

Also, be certain that you are actually using the #1 cylinder to set the engine to TDC and to actually time the engine with a timing light. Here is a firing order diagram that should also help to assist you. Let me know if you require any further assistance.
