Timing Chain & Gears Removal & Installation 2.3L Engine To Remove:
CAUTION
The crankshaft, the crankshaft sprocket and the pulley are fitted together by friction between the flange faces on each part. For that reason, the crankshaft sprocket is also unfastened if you loosen the pulley. Therefore the engine must be retimed each time the damper is removed. Otherwise severe engine damage can occur.

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section.
  2. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • Engine front cover
    • Compress the timing chain tensioner, and insert a paper clip into the hole to retain the tensioner.
    • Timing chain tensioner
    • RH timing chain guide
    • Timing chain
    • LH timing chain guide
    CAUTION
    Do not rely on the Camshaft Alignment Plate to prevent camshaft rotation. Damage to the tool or the camshaft can occur.
  3. If necessary, remove the bolts and the camshaft sprockets.
  4. Use the flats on the camshaft to prevent camshaft rotation.
To Install:
  1. Remove the camshaft alignment tool. CAUTION
    Do not rotate the camshafts. Damage to the valves and pistons can occur.
  2. If the camshaft sprockets were not removed. Use the flats on the camshafts to prevent camshaft rotation and loosen the sprocket bolts.
  3. If removed, install the camshaft sprockets and the bolts. Do not tighten the bolts at this time.
  4. Install or connect the following:
    • LH timing chain guide and the bolts torque to 89 in-lbs (10 Nm)
    • Timing chain
    • RH timing chain guide
    • Timing chain tensioner and the bolts torque to 89 in-lbs (10 Nm)
    • Remove the paper clip to release the piston
    • Using the flats on the camshafts to prevent camshaft rotation, torque the bolts to 48 ft-lbs (65 Nm)
    • Engine front cover

How do i set camshafts on 1999 duvil northstar


Remove camshaft covrs
Remove front cover
Remove or fully retract all three timing chain tensioners
Remove oil pump
Primary and secondary chain guides should remain in place. Rotate crankshaft until sprocket drive key is at about 1 o'clock position.
Set crankshaft and intermediate shaft sprockets into primary drive chain with their timing marks asjacent to each other.
Install crankshaft and intermediate sprockets over their respective shafts. Rotating crankshaft as necessary to engage crankshaft key in sprocket without changing the timing mark relationship.
Install Flywheel Holder Tool (J-39411) to lock crankshaft in position. Install intermediate shaft sprocket retaining bolt and torque to specifications.
Route secondary chain for left cylinder head over inner row of intermediate shaft teeth.
Route secondary drive chain over chain guide, and install exhaust cam sprocket to chain so camshaft drive pin engages the sprocket notch marked "LE" (Left Exhaust).
There dhould be no slack in the lower section of the chain, and the camshaft drive pin must be perpendicular (90 degrees) to the cylinder head surface.
Install the intake camshaft sprocket into the chain so the sprocket notch marked "LI" (Left Intake) engages camshaft drive pin, while drive pin remains perpendicular to the head face. Minor adjustments can be made to camshaft position to get pin to engage by using a wrench on the hex cast into the camshaft.
Install sprocket retainer bolts and torque to specification.
Repet steps as above to install the right secondary chain to the right camshafts. The right camshaft sprockets are marked "RE" and "RI". In addition, the RE sprocket must contain the camshaft position sensor pickup.

Am having trouble on finding the marks to re place the timing chain on a ford expidition 99


The timing chain on a Ford Expedition works with the camshaft and crankshaft, turning them through sprockets. The alignment with the chain and its sprockets is very precise, so replacing the chain is a very precise and difficult procedure. The chain has its own cover that you must remove to access it. Consult your mechanic before working on the timing chain. The process can vary depending on the year and engine type. Professional maintenance is always recommended.
  1. Removing the Chain Cover
    • 1 Disable the truck's ignition system by disconnecting the primary electrical connectors at the ignition coil pack. Disconnect the negative battery cable before you do this.
    • 2 Take out the spark plugs by unplugging their wires and removing them with a socket wrench and spark plug socket.
    • 3 Install a compression gauge into the Number One cylinder and use a breaker bar and socket on the crankshaft's damper bolt to turn the crankshaft. Turn it until the notch in the damper aligns with the TDC mark on the front cover and compression is noted on the gauge.
    • 4 Drain the engine oil from the truck into a pan by removing the oil pan plug and remove the oil filter with a filter wrench.
    • 5 Unbolt and remove the crankshaft pulley and vibration damper; mark their positions so they can be installed the same way. Avoid turning the crankshaft as you remove the damper.
    • 6 Remove all accessory brackets connected to the timing chain cover by unbolting them. This includes unbolting the power steering pump; set it aside with its hoses still connected.
    • 7 Disconnect the camshaft position sensor's electrical connector and remove the camshaft position sensor. Disconnect the electrical connectors for the crankshaft position sensor and knock sensor.
    • 8 Remove the front bolts on the oil pan and the socket-head bolt--the latter requires an Allen wrench. Disconnect the heater hoses and then unbolt and pull out the heater outlet tube.
    • 9 Separate the timing chain cover by removing its bolts. You may need to tap it with a soft face hammer if it's stuck.
    Changing the Chain
    • 1 Check and see that the timing marks on the camshaft, crankshaft and balance shaft sprockets are all aligned. If not, re-install the vibration damper bolt so you can turn the crankshaft clockwise to align the marks.
    • 2 Remove the camshaft sprocket's mounting bolt and the camshaft position sensor's drive gear. Compress the timing chain tensioner with a screwdriver, hold the tensioner in the retracted position with a drill or Allen wrench and pull the sprocketed chain off the camshaft.
    • 3 Turn the camshaft until the key is facing the 12 o'clock position (straight up).
    • 4 Place the replacement chain on the camshaft sprocket, turn the sprocket until its timing mark faces 6 o'clock (straight down), position the chain over both sprockets with their timing marks lined up and slip the sprockets on the camshaft and crankshaft.
    • 5 Install the camshaft position sensor drive gear by aligning its keyway arrow with the Woodruff key on the camshaft.
    • 6 Install the camshaft sprocket bolt, applying a non-hardening thread-locking compound to the threads, and tighten the bolt to 30 to 36 foot-pounds.
    • 7 Remove the drill or wrench from the timing chain tensioner and re-install all the other parts in the reverse order of removal. This includes adding fresh engine oil and a new oil filter.

How do i reset the timing in a 1997 z24 Chevrolet Cavalier 2.4 twin cam? Where are the timing marks on the cam gears?


2.3L and 2.4L Engines Before attempting to remove the timing chain, read the entire procedure.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the timing chain front cover, as outlined earlier in this section.
  3. Rotate the crankshaft clockwise, as viewed from the front of engine/normal rotation, until the camshaft sprocket timing dowel pin holes line up with the holes in the timing chain housing. The crankshaft sprocket keyway should point upwards and line up with the centerline of the cylinder bores. This is the "timed'' position. Fig. 8: The chain must be in the "timed'' position - 2.3L and 2.4L engines 87953108.gif
    Fig. 9: Remove the timing chain guides 87953109.gif

  4. Remove the timing chain guides.
  5. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  6. Make sure all of the slack in the timing chain is above the tensioner assembly, then remove the tensioner. The timing chain must be disengaged from any wear grooves in the tensioner shoe in order to remove the shoe. Slide a suitable prytool under the timing chain while pulling the shoe outward. WARNING
    Do NOT attempt to pry the socket off the camshaft or damage to the sprocket or chain housing could occur.
  7. If difficulty is encountered in removing the chain tensioner shoe, remove the intake camshaft sprocket, as follows;
    1. Carefully lower the vehicle.
    2. Hold the intake camshaft sprocket with a suitable tool and remove the sprocket bolt and washer.
    3. Remove the washer from the bolt and rethread the bolt back into the camshaft by hand. The bolt provides a surface to push against.
    4. Remove the camshaft sprocket using a three-jaw puller in the three relief holes in the sprocket.
  8. Unfasten the tensioner assembly retaining bolts, then remove the tensioner. NOTE: The timing chain and crankshaft sprocket MUST be marked before removal. If the chain or sprocket is installed with the wear pattern in the opposite direction, noise and increased wear may occur.
  9. Mark the crankshaft sprocket and timing chain outer surface for reassembly, then remove the chain.
  10. Clean the old sealant off the bolt with a wire brush. Clean the threaded hole in the camshaft with a round nylon brush. Inspect the parts for wear and replace as necessary. Note that some scoring of the chain shoe and guides is normal. To install: WARNING
    Failure to follow this procedure may result in severe engine damage.
  11. Position the intake camshaft sprocket onto the camshaft with the surface marked during removal showing.
  12. Install the intake camshaft sprocket retaining bolt and washer, tighten to 52 ft. lbs. (70 Nm) while holding the sprocket with a suitable tool. Use GM sealant 12345493 or equivalent on the camshaft sprocket bolt.
  13. Place GM tool J 36008, or equivalent camshaft aligning pins, through the holes in the camshaft sprockets into the holes in the timing chain housing. This positions the cams for correct timing.
  14. If the camshafts are out of position and must be rotated more than 1?8 turn in order to install the alignment dowel pins, proceed as follows:
    1. The crankshaft MUST be rotate 90°clockwise off of TDC in order to five the valves adequate clearance to open.
    2. Once the camshafts are in position and the dowels installed, rotate the crankshaft counter clockwise back to TDC. WARNING
      Do not rotate the crankshaft clockwise to TDC; valve or piston damage could result. NOTE: The side of the timing chain that was marked during removal must be showing when the chain is installed.

  15. Place the timing chain over the exhaust camshaft sprockets, around the idler sprocket and around the camshaft sprocket.
  16. Set the camshafts at the timed position and install the timing chain. Remove the alignment dowel pin from the intake camshaft. Using GM tool J 39579, rotate the intake camshaft sprocket counter clockwise enough to slide the timing chain over the intake camshaft sprocket. Release the camshaft sprocket wrench (J 39579 or equivalent). The length of the chain between the two camshaft sprockets will tighten. If properly timed, the intake camshaft alignment dowel pin should slide in easily. If the dowel pin does not fully index, the camshafts are NOT timed correctly and the procedure must be repeated.
  17. Leave the alignment dowel pins installed. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  18. With the slack removed from the chain between the intake camshaft sprocket and the crankshaft sprocket, the timing marks on the crankshaft and cylinder block should be aligned. If the marks are not aligned, move the chain one tooth forward or rearward, remove the slack and recheck the marks. Fig. 10: Timing chain assembly retaining bolts - 2.3L and 2.4L engines 87953111.gif

  19. Reload the timing chain tensioner assembly to its "zero'' position as follows:
    1. Form a keeper from a piece of heavy gauge wire, as shown in the accompanying figure.
    2. Apply slight force on the tensioner blade to compress the plunger.
    3. Insert a small prytool into the reset access hole, and pry the ratchet pawl away from the ratchet teeth while forcing the plunger completely in the hole.
    4. Install the keeper between the access hole and the blade. Fig. 11: Reloading the tensioner to its "ZERO'' position, then install to the chain housing 87953110.gif

  20. Install the tensioner assembly to the timing chain housing. Recheck the plunger assembly installation, it is correctly installed when the long end is toward the crankshaft. Install the tensioner retaining bolts; tighten to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
  21. Carefully lower the vehicle enough to reach and remove the alignment dowel pins. WARNING
    Severe engine damage could result if the engine is not properly timed.
  22. Rotate the crankshaft clockwise (normal rotation) two full rotations. Align the crankshaft keyway with the mark on the cylinder block and reinstall the alignment dowel pins. The pins will slide in easily if the engine is correctly timed.
  23. Install the timing chain guides, then install the front (timing chain) cover.
  24. Connect the negative battery cable.

Remove the crankshaft damper bolt from the crankshaft and lower the vehicle. <br />Install the Camshaft Locking Tool (303-530) to the "A" bank camshafts, aligning the shafts slightly as necessary. Loosen the bolt that secures the exhaust camshaft sprocket and the bolt that secures the variable camshaft timing oil control unit. See Fig. 146. Remove camshaft locking tool. <br />Remove the primary chain tensioner bolts, primary chain tensioner and tensioner backing plate. See Fig. 147. <br />Remove the primary timing chain tensioner pivot bolt and remove the primary timing chain tensioner blade. See Fig. 148. <br />Remove the bolt which secures the primary timing chain guide. Noting the position of the primary timing chain guide, remove the primary timing chain guide from the upper retaining pin. See Fig. 149. <br />Remove the primary timing chain from the variable camshaft timing oil control unit and from the crankshaft sprocket. Clean and inspect all components. <br />Installation <br />If "B" bank timing chain was removed, see INSTALLATION. If not, go to next step. <br />If previously removed, install the timing chain sprocket to the crankshaft. The teeth of the "A" bank and the "B" bank timing chain sprockets on the crankshaft must be out of phase with each other. If they are in phase after installing, remove the sprocket, turn it on its vertical axis and reinstall sprocket. See Fig. 150. <br />Install the chain tensioning tool to the exhaust camshaft sprocket. Reposition the sprocket (and the variable camshaft timing oil control unit) for the most advantageous position for use of the tool. See Fig. 151. Remove the tool. <br />Install the primary timing chain into position over the crankshaft sprocket and the variable camshaft timing oil control unit. There must be no slack on the drive side of the primary timing chain and the sprockets must not be rotated on the camshafts, or the tensioning tool may not fit. See Fig. 152. <br />Install the primary timing chain tensioner blade to the cylinder block. See Fig. 148. Install the pivot bolt and tighten specification. See TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS. <br />Push the primary timing chain tensioner piston into the tensioner body to provide clearance for installing the primary timing chain. Insert a thin rigid wire through the hole in the end of the tensioner piston to displace the ball from the non-return valve seat. See Fig. 153. With the wire in position, press the piston fully into the tensioner body. Remove the wire. <br />Install the 2 primary timing chain tensioner bolts to the primary timing chain tensioner and locate the tensioner backing-plate on to the 2 bolts. Align and install the primary timing chain tensioner to the cylinder block and to the mating slot on the rear face of the primary timing chain tensioner blade. See Fig. 147. Tighten the primary timing chain tensioner bolts to specification. See TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS. <br />Use a Primary Chain Wedge (303-533), or 2 if needed, between the primary timing chain tensioner and primary timing chain tensioner blade, to take up the slack in the chain for tightening of the variable camshaft timing control unit and exhaust camshaft sprocket. See Fig. 154. <br />Using the chain tensioning tool, apply force to the tool in an counterclockwise direction to tension the chain on its drive side. See Fig. 151. While applying opposing force to the sprocket and chain, tighten the exhaust camshaft sprocket bolt to specification. See TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS. <br />Using the Variable Camshaft Timing Oil Control Unit Setting Tool (303-654), rotate the variable camshaft timing oil control unit fully counterclockwise to the fully retarded position. See Fig. 155. <br />Check that the primary chain wedges are still in place. While applying opposing force to the sprocket and chain using the chain tensioning tool, tighten the variable camshaft timing oil control unit bolt to specification. See TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS. Remove the chain tensioning tool and the primary chain wedges and camshaft locking tool. <br />Raise and support vehicle. Remove crankshaft setting peg. Install the CKP sensor and bolt to the flywheel housing. See Fig. 143. Tighten the CKP sensor bolt to specification. See TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS. Install the access grommet to the housing and lower the vehicle. <br />WARNING:Check that the ring dowels are engaged squarely. Fully locate the assembly as much as possible by hand.

I have a 99 dodge intrepid that threw a rod and my father-in-law and I have been trying to time the car for a year now. We get number one piston up but the mark on the oil pump doesnt line up with the mark...


I'm not sure what you may be "doing wrong", but here is the manufacturer procedure for aligning the timing marks.
d753c93.gif
98f82f3.gif
^Refer to this diagram during step 12.
046beb2.gif
^Refer to this diagram during step 13.
95add8f.gif
^Refer to this diagram for step 19.

1. Align crankshaft sprocket timing mark to the mark on oil pump housing. NOTE: Lubricate timing chain and guides with engine oil before installation.
2. Place left side primary chain sprocket onto the chain so that the timing mark is located in-between the two (plated) timing links.
3. Lower the primary chain with left side sprocket through the left cylinder head opening. NOTE: The camshaft sprockets can be allowed to float on the camshaft hub during installation.
4. Loosely position left side camshaft sprocket over camshaft hub.
5. Align timing (plated) link to the crankshaft sprocket timing mark.
6. Position primary chain onto water pump drive sprocket.
7. Align right camshaft sprocket timing mark to the timing (plated) link on the timing chain and loosely position over camshaft hub.
8. Verify that all chain timing (plated) links are properly aligned to the timing marks on all sprockets.
9. Install left side lower chain guide and tensioner arm. Tighten attaching bolts to 28 Nm (250 in. lbs.). NOTE: Inspect oil ring on chain guide access plug before installing. Replace O-ring as necessary.
10. Install chain guide access plug to left side cylinder head. Tighten plug to 20 Nm (15 ft. lbs.)
11. NOTE:
To reset the primary timing chain tensioner, engine oil will first need to be purged from the tensioner.
12. Purge oil from timing chain tensioner using the following procedure:
a) Place the check ball end of tensioner into the shallow end of Special Tool 8186.
b) Using hand pressure, slowly depress tensioner until oil is purged from tensioner.
13. Reset timing chain tensioner using the following procedure:
a) Position cylinder plunger into the deeper end of Special Tool 8186.
b) Apply a downward force until tensioner is reset. NOTE: If oil was not first purged from the tensioner, use slight finger pressure to assist the center arm pin of Special Tool 8186 to unseat the tensioner's check ball. CAUTION: Ensure the tensioner is properly reset. The tensioner body must bottom against the top edge of Special Tool 8186. Failure to properly perform the resetting procedure may cause tensioner jamming.
14. Install the reset chain tensioner into the right cylinder head.
15. Position tensioner retaining plate and tighten bolts to 12 Nm (105 in. lbs.).
16. Starting at the right cylinder bank, insert a 3/8" square drive extension with a breaker bar into intake camshaft drive hub. Rotate camshaft until the camshaft hub aligns to the camshaft sprocket and damper attaching holes. Install the sprocket attaching bolts and tighten to 28 Nm (250 in. lbs.).
17. Turn the left side camshaft by inserting a 3/8" square drive extension with a breaker bar into intake camshaft drive hub and rotate camshaft until the sprocket attaching bolts can be installed. Tighten sprocket bolts to 28 Nm (250 in. lbs.).
18. Rotate engine slightly clockwise to remove timing chain slack, if necessary.
19. To arm the timing chain tensioner: Use a flat bladed pry tool to gently pry tensioner arm towards the tensioner slightly. Then, release the tensioner arm. Verify the tensioner is armed (extends).
20. Install the timing chain cover, crankshaft damper, and cylinder head covers.
21. Install camshaft position sensor and connect electrical connector.

Hope this helps!

well not sure exactly why it wont line up use something to turn the crank and cam to appropiate position start sliding crank gear until cam gear is touching then start to push both at same time make sure your crank key and cam pin are bothin place On many OHV pushrod engines, the crankshaft sprocket is installed on the crankshaft nose and the crankshaft is rotated to position piston #1 at TDC. At this point, a mark stamped onto the crankshaft sprocket is pointing directly upward (toward the camshaft).
The camshaft sprocket is then temporarily bolted to the cam and used to rotate the cam until a mark stamped on the cam sprocket is pointing directly downward (toward the crankshaft). The sprocket is then removed from the cam (without allowing the cam to rotate).
The timing chain is looped over the cam gear, the mark on the cam gear is positioned directly downward, and the chain is looped around the crankshaft sprocket. When the cam sprocket is attached to the cam, the timing marks on the crank and cam sprockets should be pointing toward one another.
