If you take old dizzy out,wherever motor is stopped,just put new one in,taking note of position of rotor,to where the old rotor was pointing.pick a spot on the motor or bonnet when you first take cap off,to where rotor is pointing,then note where dizzy sitting in relation to clamp bolt.OR,get timing pulley on TDC,then note where rotor pointing

I have a few issues going on at once with a 67 mgb this car stands a lot of time only really moves for rego inspection any how I had trouble getting it to run I pulled the dizzy and didnt observe the


pull no 1 plug and turn the crank until you feel compression under your thumb over the plug hole.. Keep going until the timing mark lines up with the pointer ( about 10 degrees advanced) check and ensure that the point gap are set correctly Place the rotor button facing no 1 plug lead or a mark in the body of the distributor. (hacksaw cut across the lip) place the distributor in the hole allowing for the rotor button to turn because of the cut of the gears . Turn the ignition on and turn the body of the distributor until you see/hear a spark across the points. lock the distributor at this point (This should be just as the points open in the direction of rotation) fit the cap and fit the leads in the firing order.This will get the engine started and by the use of a timing light on no 1 cylinder lead you can set the timing exactly.

Why wont my 1998 astro van start?


With the engine at #1 TDC your rotor bug should be pointing at your #1 plug wire.

Replacing distributor


well, to answer this we must know history, even the FSM states this.
its a toy engine so you have all facts online to match that engine.
1: it was wrong all along. timing ?
2: it was ok, time wise and want to just swap it out. ?

ILL shoot for the moon here, go easy way, #2
mark all wires. 1,2,3,4 (1 is water pump side, 4 is tranny side.0
mark cap terms too.
now transfer marks from old cap diz to new.
now remove cap on old
put crank at TDC such that #1 cap tower is at #1 wire.
this is called TDC #1 firing. (crank pulley marks are as FSM shows
then remove dizzy.
drop in new dizzy such that rotor still aligns with #1 cap tower term marked above.
clamp down dizzy
now do fine timing set running per FSM.

all this is at alldata.com and for if #1 is true, all wrong to start.

the above works for all dizzy cars made, mostly.

all this and more here.
vast info, all free too.

Xh falcon timing problem. Ive just dropped the original motor back in and i set all the timing marks but it wont start. I pulled the dizzy cap off and it is out half a revolution so i set it again on tdc...


pull the distributor
turn the crank to tdc compression stroke ( remove n1 plug and put you finger over the hole to get compression stroke ) line the rotor button up with no 1 plug lead
move the rotor button back about 1/2 inch and insert the distributor
as you push it in the button will move around to line up
keep adjusting the button back until it lines up
tighten the distributor down

HOW DO YOU SET THE DISTRIBUTOR TIMING ON A 3.5/3.9 LITRE GAS ENGINE 8 CYL 1987 TO 1991 LAND ROVER


If you have installed the dizzy in correctly ie lined it up for TDC you would use a strobe light on the bottom of the engine timing marks, while turning the dizzy to set it up,if no strobe light and it is installed correctly set the dizzy in the centre leave the bolt slightly loose so you can turn the dizzy, start it up and keep turning it fractionally until it sounds like it's running about right.......

Replaced timing chain now truck has no power


You know, I am having a very similar problem right now. I replaced the timing chain and it was running really bad. I thought it had skipped a tooth on the crankshaft somehow. Turns out it hadn't. and I have no idea at this point what I did.

Review the process. TDC #1 with marked links lining up with cam and crank sprocket marks. Mark distributor rotor at #1.(when you remove the oil pump, the drive cog will twist) so you must put everything together keeping it at TDC and line up distributor with marks. Then time it.

Nissan ca20e distributor replacement. rotor position for TDC when replacing DizzyI have removed old dizzy with out looking or marking. thank you


Here's about the best way to do it, if you left off the dizzy marking. Take the spark plugs out, and put your finger OVER, NOT IN, spark plug hole #1. When you feel the compression bump your finger off the hole, stop right there. Align the cap so that Cylinder #1 is just being fired/a little after being fired (The rotor bug is pointing to #1). Start it up, and tune it from there.

Timing belt settings


the tension setting for the belt?

or the timing marks? the timing marks differ. best set cyl. no 1 to tdc.. take out no. 1 spark plug and put sumthin long and thin down the hole.. like a long quarter drive extension.. and check to see that cyl 1 is at tdc.. then set your cam to the OT marks marked on the cam pulley and rocker cover... then you have to set the distributor also.. slacken the 13mm bolt for the dizzy clamp... you will find a line on the lip of the dizzy body.. this needs to align with the middle of rotor arm tip... (sumtimes a mark on the roror arm tip)... tension belt and your timing is set.. set your timing incorrectly and the car will run rough and not rev past 5k...
