When timing my Toyota pickup 1992 what is 5 degrees before to dead center
Hi,when you put the timeing belt on the cank pully is at the 0 mark,wich is (T,D,C)top dead centre,now the other timeing you are talking about is called the ignition timeing,wich is when the spark ignites the fuel and air in the cumbustion chamber,this is why the ignition has to be set 5%(B,T,D,C)before top dead centre.
wright first inline the top dead centre 0mark back up on the crankshaft pully,then take off distributer cap and undo securing bolt so that distributor can turn,
the rotor arm should be pointing at the number one (H,T,L)high tention lead,now slowly turn the distributor anti clock wise,then slowly turn the distributor clock wise,now as it comes up to the number one h,t,lead it should spark,when it sparks tighten the disributor bolt back up,right it should start up and run maybe not to good but it should run,
now buy a timeing light where you can put the 5% into the timeing gun itself,so now put the earth and positive on the earth of the battery and the clip onto the H,T,lead start the car again and point the strobe light from the gun onto the 0T,D,Centre markthe mark should freez every time the light flashes on it ,undo bolt on distibutor and ajust verry slowly when you are happy that the mark is lineing up propperly then I think thts job done.
all the best.
