How do i set timing chian marks

The marks are on the crank and cam gears. They either have a mark on the head that coincides with the mark on the cam gear AND you set that AND then bring the crank shaft gear to TDC on the timing marks OR you have both marks on the gears and you line them up with each other using a straight edge through the center of the shafts, then you put the chain on.

My 97 monte wont start on its own. very hard start, we have changed the oxygen senser, egr, plugs wires dont know what to do any ideas

OK so the problem is the timing chain and gear set. factory timing gears are nylon coated, so wear out in time. the eratic idle indicates wandering timing, controlled by timing gear set. suggest new ones that do not have nylon gears.

I`m changing ring and pinion gears on a 1985 Diplomat. Other than eyeballing up, is there a set dimension they should be set at? I have the new pinion in and have to adjust the ring gear but don`t know...

Unfortunately you're going to need an experienced differential mechanic to set up the new gears. The end play and gear backlash must be within thousandths of an inch or at best you'll have a noisy whining gear set, and at worst it'll destroy the gears in no time.

How do i set the timing in my 95 sonoma with an older carberated 350 from start without taking timing cover off?

There are two kinds of timing, cam timing, and ignition timing. You don't adjust cam timing, it is set when the timing chain is installed. The timing chain cover is supposed to have a pointer welded to it with marks that line up with a mark on the harmonic balancer. (depending on the year of you engine these marks veri in appearance. Ignition timing is set while the engine is running with a strobe light that is triggered by the number one spark plug. On this engine (if it's stock) around 8-10 degrees BTDC. The ignition timing advances with cetrifical weights inside the distributor as well as a vacuum diaphragm. If either of these fail you will have a performance issue with a lack of power, and acceleration. If you are concerned about the cam gear being worn out yes they do wear out. Chevy made the gear teeth on the cam gear out of nylon to make then quieter, the replacement gears are usually cast iron. If you are thinking about changing the timing gears, the crank gear has to be pulled off with a puller, a lot of guys don't bother since it doesn't wear like the cam gear.

I changed my timing chain and gears and i cant get my timing set for nothing can you tell me why or point me in the right direction

Verify that the distributor rotor is pointing directly at the #1 cylinder spark plug wire tower on the distributor cap, with engine set to TDC on the compression stroke for the #1 cylinder.
If not, and you have not touched the distributor previously, you have not set up the valve timing properly. Recheck your timing gear and chain alignment marks.
Hope any of this helps you. Good Luck!
If you need a diagram of the timing chain and gears, email me a request at

Adjusting the timing on 1988 firefly

Slack in the timing chain. Some of these car came with a fibergear set instead of a metal gear set. You will have to pull the water, then the timimg chain cover. You wil have to replace the top & bottom gear on the motor, plus the new chain. This usually will come in a set. You will also need a time gear cover set, gasket kit.There are 2-marks to line up on these two gears to set your time with, (timing marks).
