When setting timing the only thing u need to have is #1 cylinder at TDC (Top Dead Center), all other cylinders will be in correct position once TDC for #1 is achieved.

    many special tools are required to reset the timing chains, didn't know that is what you were doing here, this job absolutely requires the special tools and a factory manual setting in front of you, I am a 35 year veteran Ford dealer service tech so I do know what i am talking about here, if u get the valve timing wrong u will bend the valves in the engine, this is NOT a do at home job, seek professional help at a Ford dealer

Firing order for rocam1.6


A six cylinder in-line engine has a power impulse every 720 degrees/6 i.e. 120 degrees of crankshaft rotation. The crankshaft has six crank-throws placed at 120 degrees out of phase with one another, which can be arranged only in three planes. Therefore, the crankpin phasing is arranged in pairs. For heavy-duty diesel engines, seven journals and bearings are provided, at each end and between adjacent crankpins. For petrol engines only 4 or 5 main journals are provided. The firing order with the crankshaft arrangement shown in the attached figure is considered. With piston 1 at the top of the compression stroke, its opposite piston 6 is at the top of its exhaust stroke. Rotation of crankshaft through 120 degrees brings pistons 2 and 5 to their TDC and either one of these can be arrangement to complete a compression stroke. If piston 5 is arranged to be at the end of compression and at the start of its power stroke, then piston 2 must be on its exhaust stroke. Rotation of crankshaft through second 120 degrees positions pistons 3 and 4 at the TDC, so either one of these can be on the compression stroke. If piston 3 is made to be on compression, piston 4 must be on its exhaust stroke. A third rotation of 120 degrees brings pistons 1 and 6 back again to TDC, where piston 6 is arranged to be on the compression and piston 1, therefore, be on its exhaust stroke. A fourth 120 degrees rotation brings pistons 2 and 5 to their TDC. Piston 2 is now on its compression and piston 5 on its exhaust stroke. Rotation of crankshaft through fifth 120 degrees brings piston 3 and 4 to TDC. Piston 4 is on compression and piston 3 on its exhaust stroke. Final rotation of 120 degrees completes the 720 degrees displacement of crankshaft and brings the pistons into positions for the next cycle. This cycle provides a firing order of 1, 5, 3, 6, 2, 4. If the phasing of paired crank-throws 3 and 4 and 2 and 5 are interchanged, then a second equally suitable firing-order of 1, 4, 2, 6, 3, 5 is achieved. This arrangement provides excellent dynamic balance and evenness of torque, and is preferred for engines larger than 2.5 liters provided length is not a prime consideration.

How do i correct timing chain and gears installed correctly but #1 cylinder was in wrong position


What you are saying cannot be true. IF the timing chain and gears were installed correctly, the #1 cylinder would be in the correct position. Most likely what you have done is that you have the crankshaft in the wrong position. The crankshaft rotates twice for every rotation of the camshaft. Thus, the crankshaft timing mark will align with the camshaft mark twice - once with #1 cylinder TDC on the compression stroke, and once with the #1 cylinder TDC on the exhaust stroke. You probably have the crankshaft on the exhaust stroke when it should be on the compression stroke. You will need to take the chain off and rotate the crankshaft one full revolution and reinstall the chain. Best guess, IMHO.

How to insall distributer on 1966 ford mustang


Okay, you have to set the number 1 cylinder at TDC of its
compression stroke, and then drop in the distributor so the rotor is pointing to the #1 spark plug wire tower. This should start the car, then you could set the timing to spec with a timing light.

There are two TDC's of a cylinder- the compression stroke and the exhaust stroke. To find the compression stroke, take out the #1 cylinder spark plug. Put your finger over the hole. Now either turn the engine over by hand (with a socket on the crankshaft pulley-turn clockwise), OR have a helper bump the starter over in as short bursts as possible. As soon as you feel pressure on your finger- stop turning- the piston in #1 is rising on its compression stroke. Now check the timing pointer or scale by the crank pulley. Turn the engine slowly on over until the notch or mark on the crank pulley is right on the zero degrees mark on the scale. This is TDC of compression stroke-the piston is at top of travel in the cylinder. Put the distributor in so the rotor will be pointing to the #1 spark plug wire.

Put on a new timing belt now it wont start


I need some clarification. Did you replace the belt because it broke? If so you may need to replace the head. The problem is if the belt breaks when your moving it usually damages the head and thus needs to be replaced.

Corolla 1.6 VVTI motor the 3ZZFE motor: the timing marks are on TDC as well as cam timing as manual illustrated - on which piston will the inlet valve open and exhausted valve open?


With engine Crankshaft on TDC and cam timing set correctly this is the position where No. 1 cylinder is firing at the start of the power stroke. At this point No. 4 cylinder is also at TDC but is just at the end of the exhaust stroke and starting the intake stroke so the exhaust valve will be almost finished closing and the inlet valve will just be starting to open. This is referred to as the inlet and exhaust valves rocking.

Hi Mike.

No sir, no computer reset.

Use cylinder #5 TDC compression stroke to set up the timing marks on the harmonic balancer and point the rotor at the #5 ignition terminal on the cap.
Also when you get it running, use #5 wire to set your timing to 10 degrees with the spout connector at the distributor unplugged.
Not sure why Ford used #5 cylinder on the 4.9, probably just a joke by the engineers.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I need to know how to set the timing belt on a 1995 nissan 3.0 4x4 kingcab truck


I'm going to copy the procedure from Autozone.com below. I've never seen such a complicated way of getting the tension right, but better to follow their instructions, I guess. Note that they ask you to loosen the rocker shafts, but they never tell you to put them back. I will add that.

c42df83.gif
To install:

6. Remove both cylinder head covers and loosen all rocker arm shaft retaining bolts.

The rocker arm shaft bolts MUST be loosened so that the correct belt tension can be obtained.
  1. Install the tensioner and the return spring. Using a hexagon wrench, turn the tensioner clockwise, then temporarily tighten the locknut.
  2. Make sure that the timing belt is clean and free from oil or water, before installation.
  3. Install the timing belt. Align the white lines on the belt with the punchmarks on the camshaft and crankshaft sprockets. Be sure to have the arrow on the timing belt pointing toward the front belt covers.
A good way (although rather tedious) to check for proper timing belt installation is to count the number of belt teeth between the timing marks. There are 133 teeth on the belt; there should be 40 teeth between the timing marks on the left and right-side camshaft sprockets, and 43 teeth between the timing marks on the left-side camshaft sprocket and the crankshaft sprocket.
  1. While keeping the tensioner steady, loosen the locknut with a hexagon wrench.
  2. Turn the tension approximately 70-80 degrees clockwise with the wrench, then tighten the locknut.
  3. Turn the crankshaft in a clockwise direction several times, then slowly set the No. 1 piston to TDC of the compression stroke.
  4. Apply 22 lbs. (10 kg) of pressure (push it in) to the center span of the timing belt between the right-side camshaft sprocket and the tensioner pulley, then loosen the tensioner locknut.
  5. Using a 0.0138 in. (0.35mm) feeler gauge (the actual width of the blade must be 1/2 in. or 12.7mm thick), positioned as shown in the illustration, slowly turn the crankshaft clockwise. The timing belt should move approximately 2 1/2 teeth. Tighten the tensioner locknut, then turn the crankshaft slightly and remove the feeler gauge.
  6. Slowly rotate the crankshaft clockwise several more times , then set the No. 1 piston to TDC of the compression stroke; recheck all alignment marks.
  7. Install the upper and lower timing belt covers.
  8. Connect the negative battery cable.

When installing the rocker arm shafts, be certain that they are installed in their original positions.
  1. Make sure the camshaft knock pin is at the top of the camshaft and that the lobe is not in the lifted position. If servicing the left-side cylinder head, set the No. 1 piston at TDC of its compression stroke, then tighten the rocker shaft bolts for cylinder No. 2, 4 and 6 cylinders. If servicing the right-side cylinder head, set the No. 4 piston at TDC of its compression stroke and tighten the rocker shaft bolts for cylinder No. 1, 3 and 5 cylinder rocker shaft bolts. Tighten all bolts gradually, in two or three stages, to 13-16 ft. lbs. (18-22 Nm).
  2. Install the cylinder head cover(s).

Hi havent adjusted tappets for 15 years now , is a ford ka easy to do.


As I Understand the, the KA has a 1300 cc Ford Cortina or Escort cast iron engine. Therefore the tappet adjustment is the same as always. Place the cylinder on TDC compression stroke and adjust the tappets on its paired cylinder. IE 1->4: 2->3: etc.
