SOURCE: timing marks 1600 cc zetec

Hi the camshaft timing is two slots cut in the end of the camshafts where a locking plate can be inserted to hold the position of the camshafts the sprockets are not keyed and are a cone fit so dont undo them from the camshafts until you have locked them in the timed position
the crankshaft position should be marked on the pulley wheel and the front cover but are very hard to spot sometimes if you can get underneath the car its easier to spot with a torch from there
or if you remove the front pulley on the flat face of the bottom pulley sprocket is "D" on its side pointing to two marks at the top at the 12 oclock position is about tdc take care as the sproket is only pushed on a short way and can come off when uder belt pressur but is keyed so can be refitted easily or take a spark plug out of number one cylinder and use a long thin blade screwdriver to find top dead center by gently turning the crankshaft pulley until the screwdriver stops moving upwards and befor it moves down is roughly top dead center ,once you have top dead center found and the cams locked in position you have the engine timed and ready for adjustment or a belt change

Where are the timing marks on a 1998 ford contour lx zetec

If you are refering to the timing marks for timing chain alignment then you will need a special tool that fits in the end of the camshafts on the drivers side of the engine. You can make a tool to align the 2 camshafts out of some flat stock. The crankshaft mark will be on the crankshaft gear and engine. There are no marks on the camshaft gears.

Timing belt slipped on 2003 1.6 focus need the timing marks

there are no timing marks as such on the focus mate you have to lock the cams with a setting bar (to do this you need to remove the rocker cover and lock the cams with a locking bar)
the crank is locked up by removing a plug behind the oil pump on the back of the engine (the crank needs to be at top dead center on number 1 cylinder and this can be done by removing number 1 spark plug and using a long piece of welding wire or screwdriver, place in to the cylinder and turn over until the piston is at the top)
with the cams locked and the crank locked your engine will be timed up
please let me know if this has been of any help
