How do I find the timing marks on a 1992 voyager


Sounds like you replaced the distributor without setting #1 at TDC? The distributor cap should indicate which plug is the #1 plug wire. If there are no inspection plugs you can pop out to see the timing marks on the camshaft gears you will need to disable the starting system (fuel flow) remove #1 plug and turn it over until #1 piston is at TDC on the compression stroke. Then insert the distributor cap with the rotor on it, taking note of where the #1 plug tower is on the cap. Once the dist is installed place the cap on and make sure the end of the rotor is aligned with the #1 tower inside, if it is your good to go. If not take the dist out and turn it a bit left or right then put it in again until it lines up correctly (may take a few tries). Once aligned secure everything, replace spark plug and it should fire up.

I am looking for a spark plug/distributor wiring diagram for a 97 Jeep Grand Cherokee.


Plug wire order is: 153624 on six cyl 4.0 and 18436572 for v8.
#1 cylinder on 6cyl is the front one and on V8 is front on driver side.
1357 left side, 2468 right side. #1 on cap is easily found by turning the crankshaft till the timing mark aligns with 0. but that can be 180 degrees off unless rotor points away from the block (6) or towards the front of the engine (8)..

Changing valve cover gasket on 92 honda accord EX 4 cyl...


no and should be easy compared to what your used to.  Just put a small dap of silicone at the 4 points the cam bearing caps meet head(don't remove the caps) you will see what I mean when you get into the job. I also recommend distributor  o-ring they leak often and  are also fairly easy. just mark the dist. It will only go in 2 ways it has tabs to align it not gears.
