Question about 1984 Toyota Pickup Deluxe
I AM TRYING TO INSTALL A TIMING BELT NEED HELP
To clarify, on the DOHC engine, the intake cam gear has a line on it,
and the exhaust cam gear has an arrow on it. These should be lined up
with the corresponsing line and arrow on the VALVE COVER, pointing
straight up. I just went through this process over the weekend, and
spent quite a bit of time looking for these marking as I had removed
the valve cover. Once I found them, it was plain and simple.
In addition, be sure to not over tighten the belt when reinstalling. The tensioner has markings on it for "old" and "new". DO NOT adjust past "new", as the car will sound like a jet engine, and the belt will not last for very long.
One more item that you may as well replace while you are in there is the cam position sensor if you have not already, as there have been issues with them, and the timing housing has to be opened to get to it.
