How do I refit the distributor on a 5 cyl 2.5i m/bus and make sure the timing is correct


The tdc needs to be on (compression stroke)you can use a compression gauge to judge compression stroke.or the old school way I do is take out #1 plug and put finger over plug hole in head,let someone bump the starter until the compression blows your finger away from hole. Roll engine by hand.(socket and breaker bar on crank bolt if needed) slowly clockwise to Line up marks. Install distributer with button pointing toward #1 prong in cap.

Disturbed timing...need info on resetting non-adjustable timing.


Sounds like your off just one tooth, try pulling up dist. and back it up one tooth( counter clockwise) and try it again. When you reinstall the dist. it always goes in just before #1 not right on #1. Your in the ball park.
