What are you using for a hydrogen source? what is the volume of hydrogen are you using.
are you suplamentiong the gas?
do you want to just advance your timming one time or do you want to make it adjustable from the drivers seat?

    A water-fuelled car is a automobile that is claimed to use water as its fuel or produces fuel from water onboard,
    with no other energy input. Water-fuelled cars have been mentioned in
    newspapers, popular science magazines, local news coverage, and the internet
    (YouTube); at least some of the claims were found to be tied to investment frauds. This
    article focuses on vehicles which purport to extract their energy directly from
    water, a process which would violate the first and/or second law of thermodynamics

    In addition to claims of cars that run exclusively on water, there have also
    been claims that burning hydrogen or oxyhydrogen in addition to petrol or diesel
    fuel increases mileage. Around 1970, Yull Brown developed
    technology which allegedly allows cars to burn fuel more efficiently while
    improving emissions. In
    Brown's design, a hydrogen oxygen mixture (so-called "Brown's Gas") is generated
    by the electrolysis of water, and then fed into the engine through the air
    intake system. Whether the system actually improves emissions or fuel efficiency
    is debated. Similarly, Hydrogen Technology
    Applications claims to be able increase fuel efficiency by bubbling "Aquyen"
    into the fuel tank.

    A number of websites exist promoting the use of oxyhydrogen (often called
    "HHO"), selling plans for do-it-yourself electrolysers or entire kits with the
    promise of large improvements in fuel efficiency. According to a spokesman for
    the American Automobile
    Association, "All of these devices look like they could probably work for
    you, but let me tell you they don't."

Where should the crank pulleys mark stand for tdc.i got the timing on the flywheel spot on and number 1 valves are firing but the car does nt perform as it should.please help.its a 1987 vw passat cli 2,2

The marks on the pulley or flywheel will be TDC for top dead centre . correct ignition point is before TDC normally around 10 degrees and there will be a mark on the housing before the TDC point. You have effectively timed the spark in a retard situation and you need to get it advanced

Hello I have a 1987 dodge lancer and im having problems starting it it seems when I turn it over it shoots gas out the top. I checked the spark and there all good I just did the timming on it and all it...

Sounds like timing may be off. Recheck your procedure. Did you change the timing belt?

I would start by putting crankshaft to the zero point on scale-TDC on the compression stroke. Crankshaft will be at zero, TDC, twice; on the compression stroke and on the exhaust stroke. To find the compression stroke, pull the spark plug on number 1, with finger over hole, turn crank by socket until you feel pressure against your finger. Now turn the crank (clockwise) until it is at the zero mark-TDC of compression stroke. Pull off the distributor cap-rotor should be pointing at number 1 plug wire tower-Is it?
If good so far, look for inspection rubber plug to check camshaft timing mark on cam sprocket, OR pull the valve cover off and check the number 1 cylinder camshaft lobes that open the valves-both lobes, intake and exhaust, should be away from the valves. Valves should both be closed on number 1.
Post back with what you find. Good luck.

Set timing on dodge ram

remove #1 spark plug, then have someone bump the starter while you hold your finger over the plug hole, Bring #1 cylinder up to T.D.C. (Top Dead Center) on firing stroke you will feel a rush of air push your finger off of the plug hole, check that the mark(or groove) that is cut into harmonic balancer,(what crank shaft pully is mounted to) is lined up with timming indicator on timming chain cover, check to see that rotor button is pointing at #1 on cap.
this should get you back to where you need to be if distributor was removed and engine was turned or moved.
then look at lable under hood if it is still there , if not check service manual for degree either before, or after T.D.C.
I hope this will answer your question

take #1 plug out bring the cylinder up on T.D.C.(top dead center) check timming marks making sure that it is T.D.C, on the firing stroke, look at rotor see if it is pointing at #1 on the cap,also check plug wires make sure they are on the right place on cap , and plugs,and check firing order
hope this helps!

Not running well timming bad what is tdc and no 1 cylider

tdc is Top Dead Center on your #1 Cylinder (piston)

Take out the No. 1 sparkplug, turn the crank by hand, and when it is close use a plastic (not wire, not wood) coat-hanger cut along it's longest length. Second: You need to know more than just where TDC is for most applications. What most people really need to know is where is TDC on the COMPRESSION stroke. (The stroke where the spark plug fires, rather then the exhaust stroke where the piston pushes the waste gasses out of the combustion chamber at TDC). You do this by putting your thumb against the hole where spark plug # 1 goes. Then rotate the engine by hand (ALWAYS clockwise if you are standing in front of the vehicle, facing it) and wait until you feel a large puff of air escaping. THAT is TDC on the compression stroke. Pull off your Distributor Cap and look at where the rotor is pointing. It should be pointing to Cylinder #1. If not, you either mistook the small puff of air that happens on the exhaust stroke for the big puff of air that happens on compression, OR, your distributor is not seated right in the engine.

My cam shaft timming gear and my crank shaft timming gear dots line up and my harmonick balancer timming mark is on 0 which way should my rooter button face towards number 1 or towards rear of engine

The rotor should be pointing close to number 1, but keep in mind that the spark is actually supposed to happen before the piston gets to tdc so the rotor will be a little bit past the number 1 terminal when the crankshaft indicates that you're at tdc.

Timing appears to have jumped 180 deg. How do you

Check to make sure that the timing mark is there when #1 is TDC.Leave the wire on #1 cylinder and place the plug on somethig metal .With all the other plugs removed bump it over until #1 sparks. I would think that maybe the roll pin that holds the gear to the bottom of distibuter may have shered .This would cause issue.The cam and crank sensor will not make your timming off 180Deg.Timming chain will.But 180Deg I would think not.Where is the #1 cylinder when it is lined up in the cap? Make sure that you can't turn your distributer.Don't think you can turn it that far without removing it.
