Question about Motorcycles

1 Answer

Identifying parts I have a Ford Pinto 2.0l camshaft with an RL33 marking etched on the front. I have lost the specs on it and want to know what they are and the make of the camshaft. In the casting it has a Made in the USA stamped between the 3 and 4 cylinder lobes. There are also other stampings on the cam.

Best I can tell there were no less than 7 variants of the 2.0L Ford Inline 4... Also cam specs are not publicized. So you're going to have to mic it for lobe height and contact a machine shop for further help or

there is some information here as well but you're going to have to research it

The spark will fire at top dead center and you can see it with a timing light or in the dark with the spark plug removed from the cylinder head but still connected to the coil wire and grounded against the motor (don't hold the plug or you will feel a shock, hold it by the rubber insulator.

SOURCE: camshaft timing

check you have correct TDC for the indicator marks, place a rod down the plug hole and slowly rotate to confirm top dead centre for one and two, and follow the clymer instructions again.
and always turn it over by hand(as you have done) 2 complete revolutions and recheck marks , before attempting to start.

What is the torque spec for a 1978 Ford pinto differential pinion nut?

170 ft.lbs is the minimum; be aware that this differential uses a crush sleeve to set the backlash and the pinion torque is what crushes the crush sleeve. If you don't set the backlash correctly you can grind up your differential gears.

Crankshaft, camshaft, and distributor timing marks-2300 cc engine (© Ford Motor Co.)

On 2000 cc engines, turn the crankshaft until the two round locating holes in the camshaft pulley are visible from the rear side of the pulley, looking forward from the left-side of the car. When these two holes are parallel to the ground, the timing pointer on the crankshaft pulley should point to TDC. If the drive belt is dislocated, the crankshaft damper will be retarded or advanced 19° per cog on the belt.

If the engine you are working on does not have the two locating holes on the rear side of the camshaft pulley, then you will have to remove the drive belt cover and observe that when the crankshaft timing marks are aligned to TDC of the compression stroke of the No. 1 cylinder, the distributor rotor is pointing to the index mark on the upper lip of the distributor housing which coincides with No. 1 spark plug tower, and the pointer on the camshaft pulley is aligned with the index mark on the cylinder head.

On 2300 cc engines, there is an access plug provided in the cam drive belt cover so that the camshaft timing can be checked without removing the drive belt cover. Remove the access plug, turn the crankshaft until the timing mark on the crankshaft damper indicates TDC, and observe that the timing mark on the camshaft drive sprocket is aligned with the pointer on the inner belt cover. Also, the rotor of the distributor must align with the No. 1 cylinder firing position.


After any procedure requiring removal of the rocker arms on the 2300, each lash adjuster must be fully collapsed after assembly, then released. This must be done before the camshaft is turned.
