How do I line up the marks for the cam pulley for the Mazda Rustler 1.6 carb to set the correct timming


that little arrow that is cast into the back plate at 12 oclock behind the cam gear should be lined up with a mark between the teeth when the piston is at TDC the crank shaft mark is in line with the keyway in the shaft and will line up with a make ( pointer )in the case behind the bottom gear
to make it easy there should be a small notch in the slinger behind the gear
it is an intereference engine so make sure that the tappet adjustments are let right of so that when turning the cam or crank , the valves will not move and bend on the pistons
the length of the tension spring should be 2.52 " overall length and if not --replace the spring
replace the tension pulley as well
on the long side of the belt opposite the tension pulley apply a load of 22 lbs ( spring balance pulling on the belt) and a deflection of .44-.51" will indicate the correct tension on the belt

How to change a timing belt on a hyundai Elantra 1.5 , 1.6 and 2.0 engine


1.5L And 1.6L Engines
  1. Remove all necessary components for access to the timing belt cover, then remove the cover.
  2. Rotate the crankshaft clockwise and align the timing marks so No.1 piston will be at Top Dead Center (TDC) of the compression stroke.
  3. Loosen the tensioning bolt and the pivot bolt on the timing belttensioner. Move the tensioner as far as it will go toward the waterpump. Tighten the adjusting bolt.
  4. Mark the timing belt with an arrow showing direction of rotation if belt is to be reused.
  5. Remove the timing belt.
  6. If defective, remove the timing belt tensioner.

  1. Align the timing marks of the camshaft sprocket and check that the crankshaft timing marks are still in alignment.
  2. If removed, install the timing belt tensioner, spring and spacer with the bottom end of the spring free. Tighten the adjusting bolts lightly with the tensioner moved as far as possible away from the water pump.
  3. Install the free end of the spring into the locating tang on the front case.
  4. Position the timing belt over the crankshaft sprocket, then over the camshaft sprocket. Slip the back of the belt over the tensioner wheel.
  5. Turn the camshaft sprocket in the opposite of its normal direction of rotation until the straight side of the belt is tight and be sure the timing marks align.
    NOTE If the timing marks are not properly aligned, shift the belt 1tooth at a time in the appropriate direction until they are aligned.
  6. Loosen the tensioner mounting bolts so the tensioner works,without the interference of any friction, under spring pressure. Be sure the belt follows the curve of the camshaft pulley so the teeth are engaged all the way around. Correct the path of the belt, if necessary.
  7. Tighten the tensioner adjusting bolt, then the tensioner pivot bolt to 15-18 ft. lbs. (20-26 Nm).
    NOTE Bolts must be tightened in the stated order or tension won't be correct.
  8. Turn the crankshaft 1 turn clockwise until timing marks again align to seat the belt.
  9. Loosen both tensioner attaching bolts and let the tensioner position itself under spring tension. Retighten the bolts.
  10. Check belt tension by putting a finger on the water pump side ofthe tensioner wheel and pull the belt toward the water pump. The belt should move toward the pump until the teeth are approximately 1 / 2 of the way across the head of the tensioner adjusting bolt. Re-tension the belt, if necessary.
  11. Install the timing belt covers and all other related components.

Where is belt tensioner on 2002 Sprinter


It stands to reason that all belt tensioners must concect the drive belt so they can put tension on it . They are all spring loaded and most have a square notch in the front of them to place a 3/8s extention from a 3/8s socket wrench to push the perload of the tensinor spring towword the center of the engine to relese the spring load and remove the belt . Then remove the center bolt in the tensinior and replace it .It is a ware part and also check your belt and the routeing you may want to take a quick picture first if you don't have a readable decal on the fan shroud You need to look closer at it or spend a lot of money to have someone else do it . Good luck with it

I have a jeep liberty and i need a diagram of how to set the timming on my engine putting the cams on mark so the engine can start


This is some information on the 2,4 liter engine. The Liberty also came out with a 3.4 with a chain not a belt and it has a second chain on it as an idler so I just went with the 2.4 because you didn't mention anything else. These are the biggest I could put on here because Fixya has a size limit as to the pictures I can can put on. Bad enough I had to break it down to 10 different pictures. Anyhow, this is some of what I have. I do have the whole service manual and if you want you can email me and I will send you the entire engine section which would help you more clearly. If you do, make sure you tell me the engine size and what you are needing because i won't remember. Don't worry, it wont cost you any $$$ I don't mind helping. Keep in mind if this is the correct engine that the marks don't quite line up until after the tang is put on for the tension. My email is csautomotivecars@att.net. Here's some of the pictures and instructions for the 2.4. I hope this helsp and good luck.

If for any reason, the tensioner is crooked, replace it!!! Also, install the belt with the writing facing you like you are trying to read a book. This WILL (a trick I learned at Mercedes) prevent even a new belt from squeeling!!

How do I loosen the pully for the serpentine belt


>>> NOTE<<< It is not necessary to adjust belt tension on the 3.7L or 4.7L engines., THE PROCEDURE FOR DRIVE BELT REMOVAL IS SIMPLE, USING A 15MM,17mm,or 18mm Wrench Get to the Center Bolt on the Tentioner Pulley, ( the SMOOTH NON-GROOVED Pulley) and turn to the Right and Left The Direction you feel the Tentioner SPRING Fight Against you will be what you Want they VARIE in Terms of Adjustment Loosening the Belt for Removal, Simply Turn it Untill Drive Belt is Loose Enough to Remove


On 3.7L/4.7L engines, the tensioner is equipped with an indexing tang on back of tensioner and an indexing stop on tensioner housing. If a new belt is being installed, tang must be within approximately 24 mm (.94 inches) of indexing stop. Belt is considered new if it has been used 15 minutes or less.
If the above specification cannot be met, check for:
  • The wrong belt being installed (incorrect length/ width)
  • Worn bearings on an engine accessory (A/C compressor, power steering pump, water pump, idler pulley or generator)
  • A pulley on an engine accessory being loose
  • Misalignment of an engine accessory
  • Belt incorrectly routed.

I am Confident this WILL Help you to Conduct the BELT REMOVAL Procedure.

I have a 2002 pt cruiser with a 2.4 litre motor. I've tried to install the timing belt but it does not line up with the 4 scrib marks. I do not know how to rotate the cams in the right order for the belt...


It is typical to have to stretch the belt a tad as you install--needs to be tight across the cam sprockets and from the right cam to the crank gear. Then the tensioner should take up the slack on the other side. 0996b43f80209592.jpg

0996b43f8020873b.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif Fig. Proper timing belt routing

  1. Set the crankshaft sprocket at TDC by aligning the sprocket with the arrow on the oil pump housing.
  2. Set the camshafts timing marks so that the exhaust camshaft sprocket is a 1 / 2 notch below the intake camshaft sprocket.
  3. Install the timing belt by starting at the crankshaft. Go around the water pump sprocket, idler pulley, camshaft sprockets and the tensioner.
  4. Move the exhaust camshaft sprocket counterclockwise to align the marks and to remove any slack.
  5. Insert a 6mm Allen wrench into the tensioner opening on the top plate of the tensioner pulley. Rotate the top plate counterclockwise. The pulley will move against the belt and the tensioner setting notch will start to move clockwise. Continue to move the top plate counterclockwise until the setting notch is aligned with the spring tang. Using the Allen wrench, to prevent the top plate from moving, tighten the tensioner lock bolt to 220 inch lbs. (25 Nm). Make sure the setting notch and spring tang are still aligned after the lock nut is tighten. If not repeat the procedure.
  6. Remove the wrench from the belt tensioner.
    NOTE When repositioning the crankshaft to the TDC position, this must be done during the clockwise rotation movement. If the TDC is missed, rotate a further two full turns until TDC is reached. Do not rotate the crankshaft counterclockwise as this will result in improper tensioner settings.
  7. Rotate the crankshaft two full revolutions and verify that the TDC marks are properly aligned.
  8. Check the spring tang is within the tolerance window, if not repeat the previous two steps.

86733GH3 REPAR TIMING BELT


3.0l Mitsubishi 6 cylinder.
support engine... remove engine mount... remove alternator, power stearing pump, compressor (if equipt) do not remove hoses from power stearing pump or compressor move them out of the way were they wont get damaged. Remove the tension pulley for the serpentine belt, and the tensioner for the compressor belt if equipt. then remove the compressor mounting bracket. Next remove the engine mounting plate and the crank pulley and balancer assembly. you should now be able to remove the the 3 piece timing cover. Once removed remove the tensioner spring from the water pump and loosen the tensioner nut. Remove the belt. At this point it is also recommended to replace the water pump and plumbing as well. The water pump service life is aproximately the same as the timing belt at 60,000 miles. This engine in stock form is a non interfering type engine. Meaning that moving the cams or crank out of sync will not cause damage. Turn each of the cams over by hand and line them up with the timing mark on the top of the back cover with the marks on the pulleys. Using a wrench turn the crank so that the pulley mark lines up with the mark cast into the block. replace the belt, tensioner spring (replace tensioner if warn) and tighten the tensioner bolt. roll the crank over 2 complete turns forward and recheck the cams to make sure the marks are still lined up. roll the crank backwards and recheck the timing marks again. (this process is much easier done with the plugs removed.) If everything is still lined up correctly (crank at TDC and cam pulleys pointing to each designated mark on the covers.) reassemble the cover and assessorys in the reverse order that they were removed and reinstall the old motor mount or replace if needed.
