I have 99 chev pu 4.3 just put new head gaskets on .now I can not get the timing cam retard off -22.whats wrong.everything was set at top dead center.dist lines up on mark 6 inside it. Help


the book shows chev 4.3 L is a v6 chain driven and the valve timing is correct when the two dots line up with each other
if it is the ignition timing that you are talking about you are probably 180 degrees out in the distributor setting
no 1 piston firing lines the rotor button up at no one HT lead and not no 6
all engines regardless are timed of no piston tdc and chev engines are around the 12 degrees btdc for operation

There's a dot on the cam and a mark on the head turn the cam over with a ratchet and socket it should pop into place be sure to line up both cams one on each head and the bottom on the crank there's a mark on the pulley for the belt you should buy the timing belt kit it comes with new idler pulleys and you should also change the water pump while your in there it runs off the timing belt the new timing belt I put on had dots on it to help line up the timing marks

When setting the timing marks together distributor always points to #6 not #1 put new timing chain & gears in but cant get it timed right 5.2


Is it possible to turn the distributor shaft 180 degrees and reinstall the dist ?
I am assuming you have spark at the plugs, just not at the right time ?
If the distributor has not been moved, and the rotor points to the wrong wire, you could have put the cam gear in upside down ?

94 Isuzu Rodeo 2.6L. I replaced head gasket and now the motor will turn but no start. I did not mess with timing during procedure but did replace rotor and dist cap while it was out. Also tried to replace...


remove the distributor cap and check inner part of the cap there should be a black pin (Carbon Look) in the center of the cap, if you only have a hole, the pin fell of and without it the spark won't jump from the coil to the spark plugs. If it fell, take the old cap, and take out that pin and put it on the new one.

I have a Isuzu rodeo 1994 3.1 in I can't find the


The timing marks are stamped into the head and in the cam pulley, also on the crank and the case, find them and paint them white so you can see them, the new belts have the marks on the belt, they will line up, If they don't , you got it wrong, You can do this without spinning the cams or crank and losing the marks, as long as the belt marks line up, you will be all set. Put the pin in the tensioner before removing the belt. Did you change the water pump? And I think the engine is 3.2L. Get it in there and pull the pin, It should be right on. Turn over the engine by hand a couple times to make sure it comes around on the marks. If it is wrong, it will go about 11 or 12 miles, and you will need a new engine. Hope this helps.

what do you mean won't line up? is the belt brand new? You should be able to line them up no trouble. mark your sprockets with something when they are at TDC so you know exactly where it is without having to redu this. if you can give me a more detailed description of why the sprockets won't line up that would help. Thanks.

How to remove distributor on a 1998 gmc pick up with 5.0 engine, do I have to mark anything or just take off bolt and pull out.


You need to mark in 2 places. With the cap off mark the position of the rotor button on the distributor housing first. Then you need to make a mark on the distributor housing that will line up with a mark on the engine itself.
When you put the distributor back in back the rotor button up before you put it in because the cam gear will turn it ahead as it seats. For example, if the rotor button is at 3 o'clock then back it up to 1 o;clock.
Don't force the distributor down at the end because you can damage the end that drives the oil pump. Fidle and wiggle it as you push and it should line up and drop onto the oil pump. Also DON'T turn the engine over while it's out or you will have to retime the engine. Hope this helps.

timimg marks for camshafts are notched in the top of the cylinder head. they shuld line up directly in the middle of the 2 smaller cam gears behind the new belt should come with lines on it to make it easier crank to be lined up with keyway slot to the right again the belt should have a ditted line on it for that remember remove the tensioner pushrod assembly and put it in the vice to depress it line the holes up in the body of it and put a 1/4 in allen key through it when you refit remove the key turn it over twice all good

Check the timing chain. Aim your timing light at the mark when it's running. If the mark is jumping all over, the chain has jumped a cog, and will need to be replaced. Check the cam. Run it witht he valve covers off, and see if all the lifters are moving the same. I usually put a piece of cardboard just on the underside of the valves to divert oil back into the head when it's running. Saves a lot of mess and smoke. If it's neither of those, get back to me, and i'll think on it. I realize that you have set the timing and the valves, but if you weren't looking, maybe you didn't notice anything.

When setting the timing gears, where do you set the distributor?


from memory no4 on dissy when timing marks on cam timing in correct position, no 1 cam lobes should be "rocking" and no4 cylinder should be at top dead firing stroke(ignition)should be notch in dissy when cap is off or set so rotor button is lined up with cyl no 4 ht lead position
