Hi.
Rotate the engine until the Timing mark on the Crankshaft pulley, is in line with the Timing mark on the Bottom casing.
Rotate the camshaft pulley until that Timing mark is in line with the Mark on the Camshaft bearing casting.
Install the timing Belt from the RH side, with no looseness in the Straight line tension, depress the Tensioner pulley, and feed the belt around the Water pump drive, and then the tensioner.
As you release the tension on the Tensioner pulley, ENSURE that neither of the Timing Pulleys MOVE.
Rotate the engine 2 times and check that the Timing marks at Top Dead Center are still ALIGNED.
If all is in good order, reinstall the Motor Mount and Belt covers and ancillaries.
Regards, DT

ON the crankshaft, line the keyway at 12 0'clock. There should be a pointer on the crank gear it lines up to the slash mark on the oil pump. On the camshaft line the hole in the gear with the pointer to the the dimple mark on the cylinder head at the 12 0'clock position.

WHAT I TIMING MARKS FOR FORD ESCORT 1987


the timming marks will be behind the timing belt cover. There will be marks on the gears and also marks on the block. Line the top gear with the top mark and the bottom gear with the bottom mark. Please note that you will need to undo the battery for a few minutes and then reconnect. This allows the computer to reset itself. Hope this helps
