Question about 2000 Ford Escort
My timing belt broke and we can't find the mark on the crank shaft. We are also unsure of how to set the cam shafts. The only book we could find for now is the Haynes Manual.
A friend of mine set the crankshaft, it turns out that the key-way is on top and is the mark for the lower part. we looked in the haynes manual for the top cam-shaft's. we never had a cam-shaft alignment tool but found a scrap piece of metal that worked perfectly for the cam-shaft alignment. the timing belt is on one side of the engine and on the other side of the cam-shafts are slots where the cam-shaft alignment tool, you have a 25% chance of getting it right and we got lucky on the 1st try, thanx any way.
