there should be marks on crank pully and cam belt pully. rotate motor until crank pully timing mark is on zero.the cam belt pully should be lined up with its own mark.number one piston should be at the top of its stroke (top dead centre TDC) and number one valves should be shut. if the cam belt mark is not alined with its own mark remove the belt realine the marks and refit the belt
need help putting my 1997 honda accord in time.I got the cam pullie on top and crank top dead center.does the oil pump gear haft to go straght up too.and one more thing when we get the belt on it keeps tring to roll offneed help bad.Can anybody help please?
You need to turn the engine over and bring it up to top dead center (TDC). Aline your put the chain or belt on. The crank gear will be on you just will need to aline the cam gear as I believe it is overhead cam. Do NOT force the cam gear to turn as you can bend your valves. When you are putting in the distributer as you slide it in it will rotate a bit. Make sure it is alined to where your rotor will be faceing to the #1 position on the cap. I hope you understand. If need be I can look up the timing marks for the cam for you just post a comment if you need. When I say to bring to TDC you turn the engine over to where the # 1 piston is to the top of the cylinder. Hope this helped and good luck.
okay first you make sure the timing marks on the pullys or gears are lineing up also you find #1 cylinder pull out spark plug place a long phillips head scew driver into the hole turn the main crank it should rise and fall get the lower part of the engine to where the scew driver stops rising and right before it falls you should be at top dead center on the lower part of the engine. turn the cam shaft till the timing mark on the pully or gear is at top dead center (TDC). but you should have timing marks on the crank shaft pully and the cam shaft gear or pully I recomend a chiltons or haynes manual so you can locate these marks.
There is 3 marks on the timing chain, 2 are exactly 16 links apart and
the other is 22 from either of the 2. The engine should be at top dead
center. Line the 2 (16 apart) marks with marks on your cam gears and the
3rd with your crank gear. Torque cam bearings to 100 inch lbs.
It should be top dead center on a compression stroke and all the valve are closed. Both cams have a line the lines up with marks on the valve cover. Basicly the marks on the cams both are set to point to twelve o'clock. The mark on the crank shaft pully points to 6 o'clock or strait down
remove the #1 sparkplug place a long screwdriver in the sparkplug hole point touching the top of the piston turn the crankshaft around until the screwdriver is almost pushed out (top dead center)
check to see that the distributor rotor is pointing at the #1 sparkplug wire it must be; if not: turn the crankshaft again until it does
then turn the camshaft around until both valves above the #1 piston cylinder are closed
this is correct; now find the marks on the belt camshaft sprocket gear and, crankshaft gear aline the belt marks with the gear marks and, install the belt
