How do I set the lifters on a 1995 GMC pickup?


Before starting first put engine on #1 TDC compression stroke. Adjust #1 rockers such that you have zero lift (push rod will spin by hand but just barely), then tighten additional 1/2 to 3/4 turn in 1/4 turn increments with time for lifter to pump down between turns. A shop manual will tell you which others you can set at this same time (I forget). Then rotate engine one full turn and set the rest. I like to then run engine until warm and while at idle and using clips that cover the hole in each rocker arm where oil squirts out, I loosen each rocker one at a time (engine running) until rocker starts to click, then in 1/4 turn increments I tighten them for final preload depending on what lifters I am using--some need 3/4 turns to center lifter, some need total 1 turn. All this will be found in any cheap shop manual.

What is top dead centre on a suski vitra 54 olate ?


which engine,?
what year, 2005
and what does 44 olate mean?
these cars have many engines, called engine options.
1.8L and 2.5L are common.
you never said what you are attempting to do?
1: replace timing chain?
2: check spark timing? (it's fixed in the ecu, but on engine early the cam sensor can be moved and set wrong.

all all these engine, the damper pulley (crank pulley) is marked with a notch and then a scale above.
others (newer) have only 1 mark set. for spec, timing.

on my 2.5L the CAM sensor can be set wrong.
and the spec, is stated on the EPA hood sticker.
and on mine , 04' the timing freeze jump is gone (DLC)
and was moved to SUZUKI scan tool only usage.

so :
what engine?
what country?
and what are you attempting???????????????

Which cylinder do I use to set the timing in a 2.2L Isuzu rodeo?


All timing on engines is always done on Number 1 cylinder. On an inline engine it is the very front cylinder nearest to the radiator. On a transverse engine it is the cylinder nearest to the belt drive pulleys.

Hi - I would like to reset the timing on a 1993 Mazda 626 2L 4 cyl engine. Could you please help me.


timing an engine is a time consuming process to begin timing an engine you must 1. find the 1 cylinder 2. remove the timing belt cover 3. remove the spark plug form the 1 cylinder 4. put a screwdriver into the spark plug hole 5.rotate the timing belt until the cylinder is at the top of the chamber (thats what the screwdriver is for) 6. mark the top of the timing wheel with a pastel marker 7. with a timing light set the idle speed to the factory settings if you dont have a timing light you can normally get it fairly close by listening

When setting the ignition timing on a 1991 ford ranger 3.0 were dose the rotor need to point, after number one or before number one? the engine is on top dead center


The engine timing markers down on the harmonic balancer/crankshaft pulley should be aligned with the timing indicator on the engine block to "0" degrees when the engine is in the compression stroke for the #1 cylinder, and this is TDC or "Top Dead Center". When something blows out of the spark plug hole that only means that the piston is coming up on TDC, but the crankshaft will still have to be turned until the timing markers are at "0" degrees. You should be sure that you do know how to properly align the timing marks to "0" degrees, and the timing marks must be set at "0" degrees before the distributor can successfully be installed.

Be certain that the timing marks are set at "0" degrees and on the compression stroke for the #1 cylinder, or the timing will be 180 degrees off when you install the distributor. This has to be precise and guessing will not get the distributor properly clocked in so that the ignition timing can be correctly set.

Once you are certain that the timing is set to "0" degrees "TDC", then mark the distributor housing where the #1 position on the distributor cap will be when the cap is installed on the distributor, so that the distributor housing shows a reference mark where the #1 position is, then the distributor should be installed so that the ignition rotor is pointing directly at the #1 position on the distributor housing, or just before the #1 position mark according to the rotation of the ignition rotor. The distributor should be able to turn and point the ignition rotor on either side of the #1 position mark to provide plenty of timing advance or ****** so that the ignition timing can properly be adjusted to specifications after the engine has been started.

Be sure that you follow the proper timing procedure for that vehicle and remove any timing spout connectors that are described in the set timing procedures

Also, be certain that you are actually using the #1 cylinder to set the engine to TDC and to actually time the engine with a timing light. Here is a firing order diagram that should also help to assist you. Let me know if you require any further assistance.

I am having trouble setting the timing on a 262(4.3l)chevy vortec engine 1995


You have to put the Ignition Control (IC) system in the bypass mode by disconnecting the "set timing" connector. This is a single wire sealed connector that has a tan with black striped lead. The location of the "set timing" connector with a Powertrain Control Module (PCM) controller is near the PCM connectors in the passenger compartment. Unplug connector (tan/black stripe) start engine set timing to 0 TDC, TURN OFF ENGINE, re-connect timing connector

Set timming


You will need a timing light for Hi energy ignition as well as standard socket set or wrenches. 1. get the engine up to operating temp. 2 shut off engine connect the timing light to the number one[1] spark plug wire at the spark plug end connect battery connectors. 3 start engine and note location of pointer on the mark tab on the timing cover. 4 shut off engine loosen the hold down clamp on the distributor turn the bolt no more than one full turn[snug is better than loose here] then note the position of the dist. cap. Move the dist. to make sure it moves freely replace back to the starting position and remove and plug the vaccum line to the dist. 5 start engine and set timing to the desired spec. 6 shut off engine tighten dist. clamp bolt 7 start engine check timing one more time to see if still there at desired setting. 8 shut off engine dis-connect all tools and light
