Replaced timing chain now won't start. seems like theres no compression


did you use the locking kit to lock the engine in place so the timing marking were in the right place. if you don't use the timing kit you can some times just be a mil off and have no compression so no start. you can make a tool to lock the engine in place. now if you did not use one its going to be a bit harder to get the timing right again. you need to get the timing chain off and line the cogs back up to the timing markings on the engine and you any tool that will keep them in place while trying to put the chain back on. then turn the engine over by hand and make sure they line up on 2 full turns and marking/s out you will need to restart it again with the chain off until it lines back up in place, when you think its right then put the engine back together make sure the plugs are out while doing this job as any compression will keep knocking out the timing while you are trying to set it up.

The timing chain came off the upper sprocket of my Yamaha 660 engine. Can you tell me how to put it back on and how to tighten the chain?


in between the bottom and top timing gears there is a tensioner pulley. to put it back on loosen the tension put the chain back on and then tension it again. to tight will cause the engine to idle high to low will cause it to idle low. also would recommend replacing timing chain and gears wile you're at it.

I just put a timimg chain an water pump in a 2001 chrysler sebring 2.7 liter engine an it will back firer at start up an not run .no matter how many times i check timing marks everytime it seems to no


I just recently experienced the same problem. The timing is 180 degrees out. Unfortunately the only way to correct it is to take the engine apart again. Set the right hand camshaft to TDC by using the marks on the timing gear for that bank. The left will follow to the degree it can although you will have to manually hold the cam in position when you put the timing gear back on. Now you can remove the timing chain. The crank TDC indicator may not be right on but it will be close. Rotate the crank CW one revolution to the point the TDC marks are lined up. Now install the timing chain according to the instructions. The timing gears on the camshafts will only go on one way as the bolt holes are slightly off the extreme diameter of the gear. If you put the chain back on making sure that all the marks are proper, she'll fire on the second cylinder up. Not a fun job I know, but when everything works right, you do get a sense of satisfaction.

TIME CHAIN


Did you put the chain back on exactly like it was? I haven't seen a timing chain in years, anyway, if you didn't get that thing right, the car won't go 10 miles without causing major damage. Did you mark it some how to the cam marks and the crank marks? If you still have it open, check it out to be sure, line up the marks to the marks on the chain, if it has them, if not, You will have to put the engine at tdc, then roll the cams to their marks, get the chain on there, spin the engine by hand a couple dozen times, pull some spark plugs out to relive the compression. Hope this helps.

Merces benz c230 timing chain replacement procedure


so it takes some Pin pullers, or a litlte bit of messing around witth proper sized (heavy duty) bolt to pull the pins, i cannot seem to find the timing marks on mine once i got it offand want to put back on, i have a chilton and it doesnt help. if you buy the 100 -200 dolar shop manual from bentley it would probably be quite simple :)

pull, pins, timing cover, water pump, solenoid, etc. to get to timing cover, uppe and lower,pull valve cover, and loosen cam (exhaust side) to get chain off. :)

Trying to put timing chain back after replacing head gasket on a Nissan N22 motor. Need to find adjustment to loosen timing chain so that i can attach timing gear with chain onto OH cam. can you help on...


no adjustment neccesary. There is a timing chain tensioner, which you will simply push back in to its body. once you do that, there should be a small hple somewhere on the body of the tensioner. That' sthere so you can piut a paper clip into it to keep the tensioner from coming out. Once you lock that in place you can remove the tensioner and than the timing chain.Once you get it all back together, just pull back on the pin and the tensioner will come out and put tension on the chain. good luck.
