The proper engine position for the mark to line up is with the #1 piston at top dead center. Start with that as your reference.

99 plimouth vollager timing position marks


On the 2.4liter four cylinder the marks on the camshafts are between the two cam sprockets. The left (exhaust) cam mark is the notch directly to the right of the UP mark and for the right (intake) cam the notch is directly to the left of the 2.4 FRONT mark. Line those two mark up with each other. The crankshaft mark is located on the sprocket. It is a triangle pointing upwards. You align that mark with the downward facing triangle located on the engine plate directly behind the crankshaft gear.

02 ford escape V6 what is positions of the camshaft sprocket timing marks and the crankshaft keyway


The camshaft and Crank mark (key way) should be pointing at each other (directly aligned with each other).
ie. The Camshaft mark will be point directly downward toward the crank and the crank mark (key way) will be pointing directly upward toward the camshaft.

2001 f150 4,6l motor replaced right side timeing chain car bearllyruns could this be caused by putting the crank shaft sensor in backwords


the camshaft keys should be positioned downwards at 90 degrees to the head surface(Gasket surface) This will place the timing marks on the sprocket in the 1o'clock position upwards. The black link on the chain will be aligned with the 2 dots on the sprocket. This applies to both heads. the crankshaft sprocket will be facing down and the black link will be on the single dot. The crankshaft keyway will be located at approx. the 11 o'clock position.

If this sounds a bit daunting then get a workshop manual as it explains the process well. The book says not to turn the camshafts /crankshaft with the chains removed and I suspect that if this is not adhered to then bent valves will result.

Timing belt is broken is a belt or chain


chain. R&R instructions from autozone.com pasted below. let me know if you have any more questions.


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
SOHC Engine See Figures 1, 2, 3 and 4

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the timing chain front cover.

During timing chain and sprocket removal, position the crankshaft 90 degrees past Top Dead Center (TDC), to make sure the pistons will not contact the valves upon assembly.
  1. Carefully rotate the crankshaft clockwise so the timing mark on the crankshaft sprocket and keyway align with the main bearing cap split line (90 degrees past TDC).
  2. Remove bolts, then remove the timing guides and tensioner.
  3. Remove the camshaft sprocket bolt, using a 7 / 8 in. (21mm) wrench to hold the camshaft. Then remove the timing chain and camshaft sprocket. Remove the crankshaft sprocket, if necessary.

To install:
  1. Inspect the chain for wear and damage. Check the inside diameter of the chain, it should be no more than 16.77 in. (426mm). Inspect the chain guides for wear or cracks and the timing sprockets for teeth or key wear. Replace components as necessary.
  2. Verify that the crankshaft is positioned 90 degrees clockwise past TDC from the keyway (keyway at 3 o'clock).
  3. Bring the camshaft up to No. 1 TDC by loosely installing the sprocket and rotating the sprocket until the timing pin can be inserted. The camshaft contains wrench flats to assist in turning the shaft. The dowel pin should be at 12 o'clock when the camshaft is at TDC and a timing pin ( 3 / 16 in. drill bit) should then install at about the 8 o'clock position.
  4. If removed, install the crankshaft sprocket, then rotate the crankshaft counterclockwise 90 degrees up to No. 1 TDC (keyway at 12 o'clock).
  5. Position the chain under the crankshaft sprocket and over the camshaft sprocket. If necessary remove the camshaft sprocket, then slide the camshaft sprocket into position with the chain already engaged. The timing chain should be positioned so that one silver link plate aligns with the reference mark on the camshaft sprocket and the other aligns with the downward tooth (at the 6 o'clock position) on the crankshaft sprocket. The letters FRT on the camshaft sprocket must face forward, away from the cylinder head and excess chain slack should be located on the tensioner side of the block.
  6. Temporarily install the timing pin to verify proper alignment of the camshaft and sprocket, then install and tighten the sprocket bolt to 75 ft. lbs. (102 Nm). Again, use a wrench on the camshaft flats to hold the shaft in position while tightening the bolt. Do not allow the camshaft retaining bolt to torque against the timing pin or cylinder head damage will result.
  7. Install the chain guides with the words FRONT facing out. Install the fixed guide first and verify the chain is snug against the guide, then install the pivot guide. Tighten the bolts to 19 ft. lbs. (26 Nm) and verify that the pivot guide moves freely.
  8. Retract the tensioner plunger and pin the ratchet lever using a 1 / 8 in. No. 31 drill bit inserted in the alignment hole at the bottom front of the component. Install the tensioner and tighten the bolts to 14 ft. lbs. (19 Nm), then remove the drill bit.
  9. Make one final check to verify all components are properly timed, then remove all timing pins.
  10. Install the timing chain front cover.
  11. Connect the negative battery cable, start the engine and check for leaks.

DOHC Engine

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the timing chain front cover.
    NOTE: During timing chain and sprocket removal, position the
    crankshaft 90 degrees past Top Dead Center (TDC) to make sure the pistons will
    not contact the valves upon assembly.



  3. Carefully rotate the crankshaft clockwise so the timing mark on the
    crankshaft sprocket and keyway align with the main bearing cap split line.
  4. Remove the bolts, then remove the timing guides and tensioner.
  5. Remove the camshaft sprocket bolts, using a 7?8 in. (21mm) wrench
    to hold the camshaft. Then remove the timing chain and camshaft sprocket. Remove
    the crankshaft sprocket, if necessary.
    To install:

  6. Inspect the chain for wear and damage. Check the inside diameter of the
    chain, it should be no more than 23.15 in. (588mm). Inspect the chain guides for
    wear or cracks and the timing sprockets for teeth or key wear. Replace
    components as necessary.
  7. Verify that the crankshaft is positioned 90 degrees clockwise past TDC. The
    crankshaft keyway should be at 3 o'clock aligned with the main bearing cap split
    line to prevent piston and valve damage.
  8. Install the camshaft sprockets, retaining bolts and washers. Make sure the
    letters FRT on the sprockets face forward, away from the cylinder block. Use the
    wrench flats provided on the camshafts to hold the shaft and tighten the bolts
    to 75 ft. lbs. (102 Nm).
  9. Bring the camshafts up to No. 1 TDC by rotating the camshafts and sprocket
    until the dowel pins are at 12 o'clock. Install a 1?6 in. drill bit
    into the hole in the sprocket about 9 o'clock.
  10. If removed, install the crankshaft sprocket, then rotate the crankshaft
    counterclockwise 90 degree up to No. 1 TDC (keyway and sprocket timing mark at
    12 o'clock, in alignment with the block timing mark).
  11. Position the timing chain under the crankshaft sprocket and over the
    camshaft sprockets so 2 silver link plates align with the reference marks on the
    camshaft sprockets and another 2 plates align with the downward tooth (at 6
    o'clock position) on the crankshaft sprocket. Excess chain slack should be
    located on the tensioner side of the cylinder block.
  12. Verify that the crankshaft reference mark aligns with the cylinder block
    mark at 12 o'clock and that the timing pins are installed in the holes at about
    the 9 o'clock position. Remove the timing pins from the camshaft sprockets.
  13. Install the timing chain fixed guide to the right of the block face toward
    the water pump. Tighten the bolts to 21 ft. lbs. (28 Nm) and verify the chain is
    snug against the guide.
  14. Install the pivoting chain guide and check for clearance between the block
    and head. Tighten the bolt to 19 ft. lbs. (26 Nm) and verify the guide pivots
    freely.
  15. Install the 2 forward camshaft bearing caps and the upper timing chain
    guide, then tighten the retaining bolts to 124 inch lbs. (14 Nm).
  16. Retract the tensioner plunger and pin the ratchet lever using a 1?8 in. (3.18mm) No.
    31 drill bit inserted in the alignment hole at the lower front of the component.
    Install the tensioner and tighten the bolts to 14 ft. lbs. (19 Nm), then remove
    the drill bit.
  17. Make one final check to verify all components are properly timed, then
    remove all timing pins.
  18. Install the timing chain front cover.
  19. Connect the negative battery cable, start the engine and check for leaks.

Timeing


Doesn't matter what engine it is as long as it has valves and uses petrol (not diesel), the camshaft lobes at cylinder #1 should always face upwards. This positions the valves at it's closed setting (combustion), this is known as Top Dead Center or TDC. With this in position, all your timing markers should align on their marks (cam pulley, crankshaft pulley or flywheel ring gear). Do not confuse yourself with other cylinders being this and that, as long as number 1 cylinder is at TDC or 0* you have set your timing correctly.

Pls. give this a rating, thank you.
