The white mark is the one indicating TDC. The red one indicates 12 degfrees befor TDC. If you don't have the belt on as yet, then the mark you are looking for will be on the crankshaft sprocket that the timing belt rides on. You line up that mark with the arrow on the block. This arrow is located directly above the crank sprocket.

SOURCE: need a picture or diagram of top dead center/86' honda prelude 2.

From what I see in my manual,

1.There is a Timing Pointer on the back of the engine. There is a White mark on the flywheel. The white mark must line up with the timing pointer, for Number 1 piston to be at Top Dead Center.

2.Facing the engine, looking at the camshaft sprocket. The sprocket has spokes. On one of those spokes is the word, "UP" in raised letters, or there is a small Dot. As you can see here, the spoke with the word UP goes -> Up.
(Same thing of course if it is a Dot, instead of UP)

On the back of the camshaft gear, (Sprocket), are marks. On the edges of the camshaft gear. These line up with the top edge of the cylinder head. The surface of the cylinder head, where the valve cover bolts down to.

I'm sorry, at present I do not have a website, that I could link you to for a diagram, or photo.

Crank and flywhleel timing marks


You can find the timing mark on the end of a crank shaft by looking for an indented dot which marks top dead center.
A flywheel is balanced and does not need a mark. However if the wheel you refer to is a cam gear (one or two gears depending on how many cam shafts your engine has) look for 2 dots with a tooth grove between the two dots. A matching drive gear will have a single dot aligned with a tooth on the drive gear. When put together the single tooth marked on the drive gear must fall into the grove marked the the 2 dots on the cam gears.

If you are just trying to time an engine, the belt drive pulley mounted to the crank shaft will have a single indented line. The line can get filled with dirt so you can't see it. Wipe it clean and fill with grove with something to highlight the groove, as with a white or yellow crayon or a dob of bright paint. Associated with the belt drive pulley, there should be a metal plate with line marks spaced on it, with 0 degrees (top dead center TDC) marked on it, When the engine is running, using a strobe light connected to your number 1 spark plug you will see where the timing mark on the belt drive pulley is compared to the metal plate with the timing marks.

Do i have to remove timeing belt to remove water pump on a 97 isuzu rodeo


hello and welcome to USA forum
i guess car is a USA car and not HOLDEN, "down under "

which engine?
to remove all timing belts made
you put the engine at TDC mark. first.
our V6s have SOHC and DOHC heads, and i cant guess yours.
3.2 L 6VD1/6VD1W V6??????????????????
just 2 engines there, see that "w" , that is the twin cam.
as you can see to work on any cars engine
first know what is there, or blind help will be ,(useless)

if totally corn-fuzed, post a photo of engine.
if in usa, the virtual great FSM (factory service manual)
can be seen at mitchell's DIY
log in and read.? its all there, every step.
for belt
and pump.
Ive posted the steps here before, for sure.
if you search using real engine name , here you will find it.
i think yours is the 3.2L single cam.

there are 16steps just for removal

ill post step 9 only (do not skip step 9)


Rotate the crankshaft to align the camshaft timing marks with the pointer dots on the back covers. Verify that the pointer on the crankshaft aligns with the mark on the lower timing cover.
NOTE When the timing marks are aligned, the No. 2 piston is at Top Dead Center (TDC) compression. WARNING Align the camshaft and crankshaft sprockets with their alignment marks before removing the timing belt. Failure to align the belt and sprocket marks may result in valve damage.

My balance shaft belt broke while I was driving. It stripped some of the teeth off the timing belt and Im pretty sure it jumped time. I need a diagram to show the timing marks and how to get it back in...


see diagrams from autozone.com. Cam sprocket has an "UP" label, but also 2 scribes on the sides to align to upper head surface. The critical part of the job is keeping tension on the side of the belt that is opposite from the tensioner as the tensioner is released onto the belt. The timing marks must be aligned when the job is done.

2bd7a51.jpg
4256a1c.gif To install:

  1. Install the camshaft timing sprocket so that the UP mark is up and the TDC marks are parallel to the cylinder head gasket surface. Install the key and tighten the bolt to 27 ft. lbs. (37 Nm).
  2. Install the crankshaft sprocket so that the TDC mark aligns with the pointer on the oil pump. Install the spacers with their concave surfaces facing in. Install the key. If equipped, install the TDC sensor assembly back into position before installing the timing belt.
  3. Install and tension the timing belt. Use a 6 x 1.0 mm x 25 mm bolt threaded through the cam belt tensioner plate to temporarily hold the tensioner.
  4. Temporarily install the crankshaft pulley and rotate the crankshaft counterclockwise 5-6 turns to be sure the belt is properly seated.
  5. Set the No. 1 piston at TDC for its compression stroke.



WARNING If any binding is felt when adjusting the timing belt tension by turning the crankshaft, STOP turning the engine, because the pistons may be hitting the valves.

  1. Rotate the crankshaft counterclockwise so that the camshaft pulley moves only 3 teeth beyond its TDC mark.
  2. Loosen, then retighten the temporary cam belt tensioner bolt.
  3. If the rear balance shaft sprocket/gear case assembly was removed, perform the following:
    1. If the rear balance shaft was moved, rotate the balance shaft until the 6 x 1.0mm x 100 mm bolt can be installed into the maintenance hole to the scribed line.
    2. Align the notch of the balance shaft sprocket edge with the pointer on the gear case. Install the rear balance shaft sprocket/gear case assembly using a new O-ring coated with fresh engine oil. The balance shaft sprocket should be installed in the TDC position. The pointer on the gear should align with the pointer on the oil pump housing plate.
    3. Tighten the mounting bolts to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).

  4. If the front balance shaft sprocket was removed, perform the following:
    1. Install a suitable and sturdy screw driver or drift through the maintenance hole in the shaft behind the sprocket to hold the front balance shaft.
    2. Install the front balance shaft sprocket and mounting nut. Torque the nut to 22 ft. lbs. (29 Nm).

  5. Make sure the balance shafts and crankshaft are in the TDC position.
  6. Remove the crankshaft pulley, and if removed, install the balance shaft belt drive sprocket.
  7. Install the balance shaft belt, making sure the balance shafts and sprockets are still in the TDC position.
  8. If removed, install the balance shaft belt tensioner and tension the balance shaft belt.
  9. Loosen, then retighten the tensioner adjusting nut to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).
  10. Remove the 6 x 1.0mm x 100mm rear balance shaft holding bolt.
  11. Temporarily install the crankshaft pulley and rotate the crankshaft 2 revolutions counterclockwise, stopping at TDC.



WARNING If any resistance is felt, stop immediately and determine the cause.

  1. Recheck that all of the TDC marks align for both the camshaft and balance shafts.
  2. Loosen, then retighten the tensioner adjusting nut to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).
  3. Remove the 6 x 1.0 mm x 25 mm bolt used to secure the camshaft timing belt tensioner.
  4. Remove the crankshaft pulley and install the lower cover.
  5. Install the crankshaft pulley, lubricate the bolt threads and both sides of the crankshaft pulley bolt with fresh engine oil and tighten the crankshaft pulley bolt to 181 ft. lbs. (245 Nm). Do Not use an impact wrench.

            I am in the middle of replacing the timing belt on a 05 honda odyssey touring, before removing the old belt, the manual is saying to turn the crankshaft pulley to its white mark [which i can see] lines up...


            Remember that for every rotation of the cam there two rotations of the crank. Rotate the crank a further 360 and bring the piston to TDC and the white mark should now align on the cam.

            How do i set the timing on the balancing shaft(just replaced the belt) of a 1995 misubishi rvr 2.0L sports gear


            1- Take off all spark plug so you can turn the crankshaft easily to align Top Dead Center (TDC) . 2- Take off the engine cover to see the notch mark on the cam shaft. 3- Turn the crankshaft until the mark on the pulley match with the 0 on the timing mark. At this point if the mark on the camshaft all align then you are good. If it is not then you have to take off the timing belt to do the correct alignment as following items # 4 to 7. 4- Turn the crankshaft until the Piston # 1 is at top. Put in a screw driver to make sure it is at the top. Make sure the Crank shaft at 0 mark. If not, keep turning until it is at desired position. 5- Turn the camshaft to align at the mark in the straight line with the crankshaft mark. 6- Make sure the camshaft lobe is not pressing to open the intake or exhaust valve for piston # 1. This is to ensure it is at ignition stage: Piston is up, all valves closed. 7- Once everything is aligned at TDC, put the timing belt on. Tighten the tension adjuster, then you are good to go.

            How to align cams on a 95 ford contour 2.0 dohc?


            In order to time this engine you've got to align the cams with the respective markings on the new belt, this also pertains to the crankshaft pulley. If there are no markings on the belt, the camshaft markings will have a demarkation on the head two which each cam must be aligned. From here I cannot tell you where thes marks are but they are usually at 12:00 or 3:00 plus when you get near the alignment point the cams will feel almost like they are freewheeling for about 3/4- 1 inch in either direction.The crankshaft has to be at TDC or topdead center. this is easily accomplised with a 12 inch ruler laid across the front of the pulley with the long side facing up. This way you can center the mounting bolt and the timing mark at the same time, assuring you of exact center alignment. That's about all I can offer. Thank you, Dana. P.S. please do not turn the engine over with the key until you are certain that all three marks are dead on target. You may however turn it over by hand using a socket of the correct size going clockwise on the crankshaft.
