Need help with timing marks , I'm not sure if volvo uses top dead center to set timing marks, because my are way off


all engines are set on TDC
you did not mention the engine or if it is chain or belt so this is for chain.2.8L
crank key is in line with lh cam shaft center
LH key is vertical
RH key is facing down to the left in the 8o'clock position
for belt drive engines the crankshaft mark is 12 o'clock and both cam shafts are at12 o'clock on the head and two other marks facing2oclock on the lh cam and 10 o'clock on the rh cam
It is complicated to explain but it is in the workshop manual as to how to set it up correctly

How do i set the timing of victa altima lawnmower,i just want to know where the mark of crank shaft and cam shaft must point? it is a one piston engine with two valves


There is a mark on crank gear, and there is a mark on cam gear. These two marks may be a circle, a dot, a triangle or possibly something else. The idea is two marks must be placed together for gear timing to be correct. I hope this is what you are asking. Please let me know how you make out. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

How do i set timing chian marks


The marks are on the crank and cam gears. They either have a mark on the head that coincides with the mark on the cam gear AND you set that AND then bring the crank shaft gear to TDC on the timing marks OR you have both marks on the gears and you line them up with each other using a straight edge through the center of the shafts, then you put the chain on.

Timing chain marks needed for Audi A4 B9 1.8tfsi 2009 model. Engine was taken out and settings not marked. This is extremelyurgent. Please help


diagrams I have show a twin cam set up with 2 balancing shafts. The marks on the cam shaft point to (left cam shaft 11 oclock the mark on the right point to the 1 oclock position. The chain will have 3 black links-- the top black links will be at the timing marks on the shafts with the 3rd black link directly at 6 oclock facing a mark on the gear. The balancer marks both point to the 1 oclock position with black links on each and the 3rd black link will be facing a mark to the 7 oclock position on the crankahaft gear. Everything is done with the piston at TDC no 1 cylinder so get it there before you put the cam shafts in position or you will bend valves. Crank shaft gear is not keyed to the crank shaft. there are dots on the right hand balancer shaft gears and these dots will be as the 2 dots on adjacent teeth either side of a dot on the meshing gear. I suppose that is all as clear as mud but if you got this far then you will see the marks and marked links on the chains

I replace timing belt but cant set timing


Hi Robert, It would help to know what engine is in your vehicle? A rule of thumb way to set up the valve timing is as follows. Rotate the crank shaft until the crank shaft mark is about 90 degrees from TDC. This will protect the valves from damage when rotating the cams to align them. With the tappet cover removed rotate the cam shaft or shafts so that the number one cylinder is on compression (both inlet and exhaust valves fully closed) and the last cylinder in line on overlap, Look for adjacent timing marks on the cam gears and somewhere close to those look for the alignment marks (maybe notch marks, holes or indented match marks). (Some manufactures use the machined gasket surface where the tappet cover closes onto the cylinder head). Look closely for the static mark on the cylinder head and align the cam(s) to it or them. Once completed, set the crank at Top Dead Center and look carefully for a timing mark which aligns with the gear and set them. Fit the belt so the marks align when the tensioner bearing is released and presses the belt under load. (follow the manufactures recommended tightening instructions.) . (Remember never to crimp a timing belt, if it has been, throw it away and get another, even if it is new!) If the belt snapped and that is the reason for replacement, internal damage may have resulted inside the engine. A snapped belt may cause damage to the valves, the camshafts, the cam shaft caps and to the pistons. If the engine turns much faster than expected and sounds as if there is no compression, you have problems! (Those I've just mentioned. I hope not for your sake. best of luck Regards John

Can u help me with a timing setting on my 97 toyota camary le 2.2ll or some kind of mark to guide me on?


Hi,
Are you looking for ignition timing or valve timing marks?
The ignition timing is set at 10 degrees BTC. the marks are at the front of the engine and the degrees are scaled onto a raised molding on the plastic timing belt cover. There is a line marked on the pulley. Paint with correcting fluid the 10 degree mark and the pulley mark. Correct timing is 10 degrees BTC.
Before setting, open the diagnostic connector in the engine compartment and using a short piece of electrical wire and bridge between "T" and 'E' If this is not done the timing will not be corrected.
If you've replaced the timing belt and you're looking for the timing marks, the mark for the crank shaft is a raised casting forming a small pointer for the crank shaft which aligns with a groove in the crank timing gear....When looking from above at the relevant section of the engine, it will appear on your right hand side just above the crankshaft timing gear.
The marks for the cams are holes drilled through each and these should be aligned with punch marks on the cylinder head. The best way of doing this job is by using a mirror and illuminating between the cam gears and the cylinder head.
Hope this helps
Regards Johngee10

Setting the timing in a 1993 subaru justy


If you are talking of the rubber timing belt setting then rotate the cam gear till the timing mark (small hole) on the camshaft gear aligns with the mark on the plastic cover behind it. Mark is on top of plastic cover (12 'o' clock).
Rotate the crank till the timing mark (groove, not the one for the crankshaft woodruff key) on crankshaft gear is aligned with the mark on the bottom of the plastic cover behind it. (6 'o' clock).
Tighten tensioner against timing belt rotate engine a few times make sure alignment of timing marks remain.
