What are the timing marks


timing marks are guides for when you put in your timing belts to ensure that at top dead center of the piston it should not hit the valves as well as serve as a guide in setting your timing. There are marks in the crank gear and cam shaft sprocket that should be pointing up. You can also determine the top center of the piston by putting a long screwdriver inside the empty spark plug hole. The piston should push the screwdriver all the way out if the piston is at the "top" position.

I need to know how to set the timing belt on a 1995 nissan 3.0 4x4 kingcab truck


I'm going to copy the procedure from Autozone.com below. I've never seen such a complicated way of getting the tension right, but better to follow their instructions, I guess. Note that they ask you to loosen the rocker shafts, but they never tell you to put them back. I will add that.

To install:

6. Remove both cylinder head covers and loosen all rocker arm shaft retaining bolts.

The rocker arm shaft bolts MUST be loosened so that the correct belt tension can be obtained.
  1. Install the tensioner and the return spring. Using a hexagon wrench, turn the tensioner clockwise, then temporarily tighten the locknut.
  2. Make sure that the timing belt is clean and free from oil or water, before installation.
  3. Install the timing belt. Align the white lines on the belt with the punchmarks on the camshaft and crankshaft sprockets. Be sure to have the arrow on the timing belt pointing toward the front belt covers.
A good way (although rather tedious) to check for proper timing belt installation is to count the number of belt teeth between the timing marks. There are 133 teeth on the belt; there should be 40 teeth between the timing marks on the left and right-side camshaft sprockets, and 43 teeth between the timing marks on the left-side camshaft sprocket and the crankshaft sprocket.
  1. While keeping the tensioner steady, loosen the locknut with a hexagon wrench.
  2. Turn the tension approximately 70-80 degrees clockwise with the wrench, then tighten the locknut.
  3. Turn the crankshaft in a clockwise direction several times, then slowly set the No. 1 piston to TDC of the compression stroke.
  4. Apply 22 lbs. (10 kg) of pressure (push it in) to the center span of the timing belt between the right-side camshaft sprocket and the tensioner pulley, then loosen the tensioner locknut.
  5. Using a 0.0138 in. (0.35mm) feeler gauge (the actual width of the blade must be 1/2 in. or 12.7mm thick), positioned as shown in the illustration, slowly turn the crankshaft clockwise. The timing belt should move approximately 2 1/2 teeth. Tighten the tensioner locknut, then turn the crankshaft slightly and remove the feeler gauge.
  6. Slowly rotate the crankshaft clockwise several more times , then set the No. 1 piston to TDC of the compression stroke; recheck all alignment marks.
  7. Install the upper and lower timing belt covers.
  8. Connect the negative battery cable.

When installing the rocker arm shafts, be certain that they are installed in their original positions.
  1. Make sure the camshaft knock pin is at the top of the camshaft and that the lobe is not in the lifted position. If servicing the left-side cylinder head, set the No. 1 piston at TDC of its compression stroke, then tighten the rocker shaft bolts for cylinder No. 2, 4 and 6 cylinders. If servicing the right-side cylinder head, set the No. 4 piston at TDC of its compression stroke and tighten the rocker shaft bolts for cylinder No. 1, 3 and 5 cylinder rocker shaft bolts. Tighten all bolts gradually, in two or three stages, to 13-16 ft. lbs. (18-22 Nm).
  2. Install the cylinder head cover(s).

How do i install the cams on a 92 toyota paseo. 1.5l I am changing the head gasket and had to take off the cams now i am putting it all back together. **** need to know how to alingine the cams up...


First of all, bring your number one piston to top. Number one is the first one from the right (passenger side). There is a mark for this on the front of the belt cover. The timing mark on the crankshaft pulley should be aligned with 0. There will be two horizontal pit marks on one camshaft sprocket and one (a little bigger) on the other camshaft sprocket. These should fit together. Now the timing mark on the face of the timing belt sprocket should be a couple of degrees to the right of straight up. There will be a 5E on the timing belt sprocket. This 5E is what needs to be just to the right of straight up. Tighten everything down and your engine should start.

I'm not sure how to get the timing belt sprockets aligned on their indexes, and at the same time be TDC on the first firing piston. Please help korby


FIRST GET NO. ONE PISTON AT TOP DEAD CENTER USING THE CRANKSHAFT. THEN TRY TO LINE UP CAM AS CLOSE AS POSSIBLE AND WHEN SETTING THE TENSIONER PULLEY TAKE NOTE OF HOW MANY TEETH THE CAM IS OFF WHEN THE TENSIONER IS TIGHT. THEN TAKE TENSION OFF THE TIMING BELT AND ROLL THE CAM BACK AS MANY TEETH AS IT WAS OFF WHEN IT WAS TIGHT. THEN RESET TENSIONER AND ROTATE ENGINE WITH CRANKSHAFT AND CHECK MARKS AFTER ONE ROTATION. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA.

How do you align the camshaft & crankshaft timing marks 1.9


This is the same as a Ford Escort 1.9, the #1 cylinder should be all the way up. To confirm- the crak shift mark should be on zero which is Crank Shift Center- THe camshift sproket should align with the headmark. Make sure both marks don't move. Align the belt- not too tight , not to loose

1989 Isuzu pickup how to align timing marks on cam and crank?


The Isuzu is a strange animal-when you do the timing belt you set it with #1 TDC "BUT" the distributor is timed with TDC #4 I found this the hard way and finally had to buy a cd with the procedures on it. Send me an e-mail address and I will forward the associated pictures &
info to you.

TIMING BELT & SPROCKETS R & I
NOTE: Some procedures may differ slightly due to engine
construction.
Removal
1) Remove all necessary air ducts. Position No. 4 piston at
TDC of compression stroke. Align timing marks. See Fig. 2. Remove fan
and fan shroud. Remove belts. If necessary, remove radiator and
splashguard.
2) Prevent engine from rotating and remove crankshaft timing
pulley retaining bolt. Remove upper and lower timing belt covers.
Remove spring from tension pulley. Loosen adjusting bolt and move
pulley toward water pump. Remove timing belt.
CAUTION: Ensure pistons are at TDC when rotating camshaft or damage
may result.
Inspection
1) Handle timing belt carefully. Avoid twisting or kinking
belt. Do not allow belt to become contaminated by water, oil, dirt or
other contaminates. Inspect belt for cracks or damage. If necessary,
replace.
2) Measure tension pulley spring length and force. Spring
length should not exceed 2.76" (70.2 mm) and spring force should not
be less than 197-347 lbs. (27-48 kg).
3) Replace tension pulley spring if not within specification.
Installation
1) Pull tensioner fully toward water pump side and
temporarily tighten retaining bolt. Ensure No. 4 cylinder is at TDC on
compression stroke by rotating crankshaft until keyway aligns with
mark on front crankshaft seal housing (12 o’clock). Rotate camshaft
until timing mark on cam gear (arrow) aligns with mark on upper
camshaft cover (notch). See Fig. 2.
NOTE: When timing marks are aligned as stated above, No. 4 piston
is at TDC on compression stroke.
2) Position timing belt over crankshaft sprocket, oil pump
sprocket, camshaft sprocket and tensioner in that order. Ensure belt
is positioned in sequence given and without slack between sprockets.
Loosen tension sprocket adjusting bolt allowing spring tension to
tighten belt. Tighten adjusting bolt temporarily.
3) Temporarily install crankshaft pulley bolt and rotate
crankshaft 2 complete revolutions in opposite direction of engine
rotation, until marks on crankshaft and front oil seal retainer are
aligned again. See Fig. 2. Loosen tensioner lock bolt, allowing
tesioner spring to fully adjust tension. Tighten tensioner lock bolt.
4) Install timing belt covers. To complete installation,
reverse removal procedures. Tighten all bolts to specification. See
TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS table at end of this article.
