Timing chain repair on peugeot 504 /setting the timing after repair
I am requesting the method of setting the valve timing after replacing a timing chain. I was requested to help the man who owns the car after the old chain was removed and the engine position had been disturbed. The timing marks are a small line on both the crank pully and on the cam pully. I jusst need to know how to poaition these marks. I am a motor mechanic (Retired) so will understand the instructions. Better still if one is able to get hold of an illustration it will help.Regards, Graham Chapman.

This would be a major task for any mechanic. Are you sure its the timing chain and not a defective water pump / alternator / aircon pump rattling? Generally Benz timing chains would do 200k if properly maintained which is why I question your request?
Have you done this mileage and have you had a good look at the serpentine aux drive belt?
There is no timing adjustment.
Are you replacing the timing chain?
If so did you set everything before you pulled off the old chain?
If the old chain broke you bent valves almost gauranteed!
Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!
No, The 2.4lt quad 4 has a timing CHAIN when it starts to get sloppy the chain must be replaced. As these engines have an internal ignition pack under the valve cover ther is no adjustment. Unless you are an acomplished mechanic I don't suggest you takle this on your own.
You want to wipe off the links of the lower timing chain next to the timing marks on the sprocket and put paint marks on the timing chain matching them with the timing marks on the idler sprocket and crankshaft sprocket.
Are you getting fuel? When you turn the ignition switch to on , does the pump energize? If not make sure the relay is ok. If you have fuel, make certain the timing is exactly correct. Go back through the steps if you are not sure it is right. Also make sure all your sensors are hooked up and working. Hope this helps. Rate me high, please. I can be requested as well if you need further assistance.
