Move the cams to a dfferent location, set your #1 to TDC, then rotate the cams where the marks need to be.

Trying to get my 360 mopar running after rebuild


If that motor doesn't have hydraulic lifters, try loosening your rocker shafts. It will clatter, but it will run. That's what I had to do on my old slant 6.

How to find top dead center with 12 volt test lamp 2004 montero


no job stated, so...??
you can't (with a bulb)
but you can watch the piston get to TDC
or set the crank pulley to TDC mark.
you didnt say spark of firing, so cant guess what you are doing
cam
or
spark timing.

keep in mind spark happens only 1 time in 2 TDC events.

Instruction changing timing belt 1979 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloz?


With Cam Caps loosened, FIRST loosen timing chain tensioner, press it in to loosen tension, Crank using ratchet to TDC (Top Dead Center on crank pully, (to keep from damage to pistons), align Exhaust Cam Timing Mark to mark on #1 Exhaust cam cover, then take up slack between Exhaust & Intake Cams (on top between the cams), Then align the Intake Cam to mark on #1 Cam Cap, "Now" loosen the 17mm bolt to tighten timing chain, rotate engine using rachet two times, reset TDC at the crank, and look at "Cam Timing Marks on both the Exhaust, and Intake Cams. If you did all this correctly the "Timing Marks" should be lined up so TDC,Exhaust, and Intake marks are all the same.

Well, since it won't run, you cant check timing with a light. You could try static timing: Bring #1 piston to TDC by mark on scale by crank pulley. Take upper timing chain cover off. Cam pulley should have a mark or circle or dot that lines up with mark on bloick. (Need to make sure you are on compression stroke, not exhaust stroke of piston. How? Best way is pull spark plug and hold finger or thumb over plug hole. As you turn crank (clockwise) with a socket approaching the TDC mark, you will feel pressure build on your finger if you are on compression stroke. Could also have someone bump starter a little at a time, you can feel pressure build on your finger as piston approaches TDC. When it's close, use socket to line up crank pulley with mark.) Now check cam pulley for those timing marks. Valve timing off is often cause of backfires. So is too much gas, but first I would make sure timing is right.

I had to replace the intake gasket on my 2002 5.7L GMC 2500 Savana van and failed to make the distributor position. How do I readjust the timing?


you will have to bring the #1 piston to TDC on it's compression stroke (use timing mark if there is one or probe the plug hole to see when it's all the way up). To do this, you have to either pull the timing cover to check the cam sprocket marks or pull the valve cover to watch the intake valve close ahead of the compression stroke. Then, with the piston at TDC, you get the distributor rotor to align with #1 on the cap when fully seated. OK?

I have just rebuilt the engine on my 95 isuzu rodeo and when i set the timing marks according to facotry specs it will not start and sounds like the valves are open when the pistons reach the top of the...


You said you did to specs but if that was the case the valves would not be open at tdc.
triple check your timing(get a light if nessisary)
check that you dont have the plug wires mixed up
Note:
Izuzu engines are very picky and if the marks are not correct after turning over two rotations as stated in the book it will not run.
(im also taking that this is the v6SOHC engine)

Need timing marks for 2002 ford explorer 4.0 engine. trying 2 check timing chain. any one know specs


There are no marks on this one. There is a special tool set to align camshafts ($900). The best you can do is to bring #1 cyl to TDC compression with both cam(valve) covers off. #5 cyl should have lobes at equal opening, exhaust just closing and intake just opening.. #1 cyl cam lobes should each be diametrically opposed to the positions of #5. If cams need to be moved, there is no registration of gear onto cam. Just loosen bolt holding gear and move cam. Retighten bolt. Roll thru 2 crank revolutions and check cam timing again.Simple.

1989 Isuzu pickup how to align timing marks on cam and crank?


The Isuzu is a strange animal-when you do the timing belt you set it with #1 TDC "BUT" the distributor is timed with TDC #4 I found this the hard way and finally had to buy a cd with the procedures on it. Send me an e-mail address and I will forward the associated pictures &
info to you.

TIMING BELT & SPROCKETS R & I
NOTE: Some procedures may differ slightly due to engine
construction.
Removal
1) Remove all necessary air ducts. Position No. 4 piston at
TDC of compression stroke. Align timing marks. See Fig. 2. Remove fan
and fan shroud. Remove belts. If necessary, remove radiator and
splashguard.
2) Prevent engine from rotating and remove crankshaft timing
pulley retaining bolt. Remove upper and lower timing belt covers.
Remove spring from tension pulley. Loosen adjusting bolt and move
pulley toward water pump. Remove timing belt.
CAUTION: Ensure pistons are at TDC when rotating camshaft or damage
may result.
Inspection
1) Handle timing belt carefully. Avoid twisting or kinking
belt. Do not allow belt to become contaminated by water, oil, dirt or
other contaminates. Inspect belt for cracks or damage. If necessary,
replace.
2) Measure tension pulley spring length and force. Spring
length should not exceed 2.76" (70.2 mm) and spring force should not
be less than 197-347 lbs. (27-48 kg).
3) Replace tension pulley spring if not within specification.
Installation
1) Pull tensioner fully toward water pump side and
temporarily tighten retaining bolt. Ensure No. 4 cylinder is at TDC on
compression stroke by rotating crankshaft until keyway aligns with
mark on front crankshaft seal housing (12 o’clock). Rotate camshaft
until timing mark on cam gear (arrow) aligns with mark on upper
camshaft cover (notch). See Fig. 2.
NOTE: When timing marks are aligned as stated above, No. 4 piston
is at TDC on compression stroke.
2) Position timing belt over crankshaft sprocket, oil pump
sprocket, camshaft sprocket and tensioner in that order. Ensure belt
is positioned in sequence given and without slack between sprockets.
Loosen tension sprocket adjusting bolt allowing spring tension to
tighten belt. Tighten adjusting bolt temporarily.
3) Temporarily install crankshaft pulley bolt and rotate
crankshaft 2 complete revolutions in opposite direction of engine
rotation, until marks on crankshaft and front oil seal retainer are
aligned again. See Fig. 2. Loosen tensioner lock bolt, allowing
tesioner spring to fully adjust tension. Tighten tensioner lock bolt.
4) Install timing belt covers. To complete installation,
reverse removal procedures. Tighten all bolts to specification. See
TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS table at end of this article.

cam shaft timing marks on back of cams ,two slots ,use a flat piece of metal to align .remove no1 spark plug and drop long thin screwdriver down it to bring piston just below tdc,then align cams so both cams are on the rock (valves closed) with knob on back cam aligning with pick up sensor left side between lobes.then bring piston up to tdc and fit belt.turn engine over twice with socket on bottom pulley to make sure no valves clear pistons.Remember to remove flat edge from back of cams i didnt last time and bent my home made tool
