Question about 1989 Mitsubishi Mighty Max

1 Answer

I put timing belt on 1989 mitsubishi mightymax and timing marks seem to all line up just seems like the camshaft mark is off by one tooth so i moved it that one tooth and started it up and and u can hear taping noise on top end i dont remember that noise being there motors got 250k miles on it how do u know when its on compression stroke for me to reset timing make sure its perfect? bc i have too spin crank around like 4 times before all marks line up its weird lol i have 1# sparkplug out and can see pistion rise to the top at least 4times before all marks line up thats with crank camshaft pullie and both balancer gears have markings. im not sure if valve will touch piston to make that noise by geting one tooth off revs up pretty good didnt do it to much

The tapping is probably a rocker that isn't adjusted right. The valves will not hit the piston if you're off by one tooth, but the engine will not have much power. The piston is on compression when both valves are shut and the piston is moving up (the cams should be on their marks when the piston tops out on compression). Otherwise, if on exhaust stroke, the exhaust valve will be open until the piston reaches the top. Make sure you have adjusted the valves properly and that the engine has good power. You're doing pretty good so far...

Why wont the timing marks wont line up when u turn it 2 time like the video says


The timing will not be correct. If the crankshaft is rotated 2 times, the camshaft will rotate 1 time. If the marks will not line up, there will be a timing problem. Most likely the tensioner will not be adjusted properly causing the belt to jump

What is the problem when I set the camshaft timing marks in their proper positions they move 1 tooth mark over after every 2 crankshaft revolutions


i would think the cam marks will only line up again after turning cam when it has completed one completd cycle , what is it you are trying to achieve ?

Timing belt change on 92 bighorn 4jg2.bolts into both cogs, tdc etc.now it runs rough and heaps of smoke, checked timing belt 2x rotations back to tdc and bolts lined up Possibly pump timing?


fuel pumps ( diesel pumps) that are belt driven are spring loaded for the timing
you cannot remove and replace the belt as the pulley will move 1 tooth put of time
check where the timing mark on the pump pulley is when the crank and camshaft marks are on the spot and readjust to the mark where it should be

Valve timing


there should be tiny wee marks n the pulleys and on the block, line those little marks up put the belt on and tension the belt up.

I'need digrames and how to fixes timing belt


You are going to have to line both of your intakes to the exhaust so probabely have to loosen the camshaft gear bolt on the timing belt side . And since you don't have the mark for top dead center you have to put the cover back on and line the crankshaft on the safe mark then when you pull it off take a marker and put a mark on the block that aligns with a tooth so you can make sure it hasn't moved when you put the belt on. I also marked the intakes when I aligned them so I made sure nothing slipped

Timing out by half a tooth


if you use marks on the belt,try to revers or rotate t/belt untill marks lined up correctly with marks on sprockets.Use something like big binder clips to hold belt on camshaft sprockets(line them up first) , then go for crank.

How many chain links from camshaft sprocket mark to crankshaft sprocket mark on a 4G54


Click on the following free Link. It has the Timing Belt/Mark Diagrams you will need for your 1989 Mitsubishi Sigma.
You can count the number of notches on the Belt giving you the number of chain links between the Front and/or Rear Camshaft Marks to the Crankshaft Sprocket.

Let me know if this helped....

How to set timming belt,cant find mark for crankshaft 3.0L


Timing belt removed, static timing was not set before removing timing belt.

[Set Static Timing:
No.1 piston is brought up to TDC before removing timing belt.

Cam gear has a punchmark on face of gear, and this mark aligns with one single tooth. There is a matching punchmark on the Timing Belt Rear Upper Cover.

Facing the cam gear, the mark is to the upper right. There is an 'egg shape' of the timing belt upper rear cover, in this spot. This punchmark is in that 'egg shape', and is close to a bolt hole. The cam gear mark lines up with the Timing Belt Rear Upper Cover, mark.

The crankshaft gear has a punchmark on the face. It lines up with one single tooth. There is a corresponding punchmark on the lower right side. An alignment mark)

Should be a round punchmark on the face of the crankshaft gear. It lines up with a single tooth. Wipe the gear clean, use a little carb cleaner. (NO flames, or sparks nearby, well ventilated area)

Barring you cannot find the crankshaft mark, find the camshaft alignment marks, make sure they are aligned with the alignment, (Punchmark), on the Timing Upper Rear Cover.

Count the teeth in the timing belt. There should be 133 teeth on the belt.

There is 43 teeth in-between the timing mark of the camshaft, and the timing mark on the crankshaft.

(43 teeth in-between the Right Side Camshaft mark to crankshaft mark, 43 teeth in-between the Left Side Camshaft mark to crankshaft mark)

There should be 40 teeth in-between the two cam gears.

Can someone please tell me the timing settings


You didn't say whether you had a V6 engine or a 4cyl. Here is the procedure for a V6, 3.2L for 1998 - at least 2002.

It sounds like he moved the cam shaft independently of the crankshaft or other camshaft so you will need to do all these procedures:

1. Turn the crankshaft until the mark on the spocket is lined up with the mark on the oil pump housing (the mark is on the driver's side at 90 degrees to the sprocket itself).

2. Back off the crankshaft counterclockwise 1/8 turn to ensure the pistons aren't at top dead center. This gives the valves room to move without hitting the piston.

3. Turn the passenger's side camshaft until it "jumps" into place with the alignment mark on the camshaft pully is pretty close to being lined up with the mark on the engine head.

4. Turn the driver's side camshaft until it "jumps" into place this should be perfectly lined up. If you turned the crankshaft 10 full rotations and it still doesn't line up at any rotation then choose the closest point with the mark off by 1/8 to 1/4 turn off from the mark. Then line it up by hand.

5. The idler pulleys and tensioner pulleys should be installed on the engine but the tenioner pulley adjuster (it is a little cylinder with a rod coming out of it that is held in place by 2 bolts) should be removed.

6. Place the new belt on the crankshaft first. Be sure the arrows on the belt point in a clockwise direction. If you have a belt with lines and dots then the lines will line up with all markings that you have lined up together on the camshafts. The dots should line up at the 270 degree point on the crankshaft (opposite of the lines and the markings). There should be a factory blue dot on the crankshaft where the belt dots should line up.

7. Loop the belt around the tensioner pulley, around the passenger's side cam, under the waterpump, around the driver's side cam, and finally around the idler pulley. Check all alignments.

8. Put the tesioner adjuster in a vise and squeeze it together until you can place a small drill bit or allen wrench through the holes to keep it compressed.

9. If all lines are aligned and the play is removed from the driver's side then this step should be easy. Hold the tensioner pully against the belt and install the tensioner adjuster. Then pull the dril bit or allen wrench to release the adjuster. Sometimes this step can be a bit tricky and you may need some moving of the belt to allow enough play to get the adjuster in place. This may move the passenger's side alignment. If so, you will need to try it again. I find that if you move passenger's side alignment mark clockwise by one tooth of the sprocket, then when you go to put the tensioner in place it lines up. You may find other tricks to overcome this challenge. Remove to remove the drill bit or allen wrench.

10. Once you think you have everything lined up. Use a wrench to turn the crankshaft sprocket 2 full turns. Listen closely and feel for any hard resistance as you do this to determine if the pistons are hitting the valves. If you believe they are hitting each other then repeat the adjustment procedure. Not doing this can ruin the valves or more.

11. If everything seems OK you can try turning the engine over with the ignition. If it doesn't start, don't keep trying. Assume you need to perform the steps again and realign everything.

I hope this helps.

I hope this helps.
