Hey Dirk,,
The cams are "timed in" at TDC on the compression stroke... both lobes on both cams should be 180* away from the rocker arms or 180* away from the valve shim buckets...(to provide the maximum clearance).. the markings you see are probably alignment marks the align with the mating surface of the cam holder mating surface or the head cover mating surface..

Need timing marks for 1993 1.6 Toyota Corola camshafts

If its the 1.6litre 4afe. Turn the crankshaft to TDC, ie. Tiny slit on the crank pulley should be straight underneath the 0deg mark. The cams, intake cam is driven off the exhaust cam by means of two gears. Installation marks. They have 4 holes in front of the gears. Front being closest to timing belt. Upon installation one hole in each gear should face upwards and the other holes should face each other between the gears. On the exhaust cam pulley there is a hole drilled through it, ie. timing mark. It should face up. Directly inline with the grove in the first cam cap. If you have 1.6litre 4age engine. Between cam gears and cylinder head there should be a plate. groves in cam gears should face the groves in the the plate.

Cam timing

you have to make sure your piston is at TDC starting to go down into theintake stroke, and set it so the intake cam lobe is opening the intake valve as your piston reaches TDC.

Corolla 1.6 VVTI motor the 3ZZFE motor: the timing marks are on TDC as well as cam timing as manual illustrated - on which piston will the inlet valve open and exhausted valve open?

With engine Crankshaft on TDC and cam timing set correctly this is the position where No. 1 cylinder is firing at the start of the power stroke. At this point No. 4 cylinder is also at TDC but is just at the end of the exhaust stroke and starting the intake stroke so the exhaust valve will be almost finished closing and the inlet valve will just be starting to open. This is referred to as the inlet and exhaust valves rocking.

How do i time a 250 sx 3 wheeler

The cam gear has 2 holes opposite from each other, some have slash marks.
Those marks will be parellel with the head once the timing chain is on.
Both intake and exhaust valve will be closed.
If the lobes on the cam are up, then your 180 degrees out and need to flip it over

Assuming the jug is on , and motor is on TDC, install the head, hold the cam with the cam gear attached tand place it in the head with the lobes down in its place, look at the marks on the cam gear and keep them parellel with the head, put the timing chain over the cam gear carefully.
once the chain is on, check that the motor didn't move and is still on TDC, and that when you lay the cam all the way down, the cam gear marks are parellel with the head.

If the marks are parellel and motor is on TDC, now you can put your rockers back on and adjust your valve clearance. .03 intake .05 exhaust

Install you exhaust, intake , carb, etc and fire it up.

1993 YZ250 Timing

Judging by your previous questions,I think this is the info you need.
Setting cam timing with stock cams is relatively easy using the punch mark on the cam gears For stock timing, the punch marks at 9 O'clock on the exhaust cam and at 3 O'clock on the intake cam should align with the top of the head. If stock timing is altered the exhaust cam punch mark will either be one tooth above or one tooth below the top of the head.
  1. Take out tensioner.
  2. Remove both plugs from shifter side of crankcase, the center plug to turn, the 11:00 plug to locate the 'I' (not the H) in.
  3. Use a ratchet on end of crankshaft (through center plug) and zip tie ratchet to footpeg with the I lined up in the timing plug hole.
  4. With the intake cam (rear one) pointing straight back, align the punch mark on the backside of the intake cam sprocket with the top of the head. Since the slack in the timing chain is in the back, if it doesn't align exactly right at the top of the head, err slightly high. Zip tie chain to intake sprocket.
  1. Remove exhaust cam, count 12 links (where sprocket teeth will go) from the punch mark on the top of the intake cam and mark that position on the chain with something noticeable (use a Sharpie). Hold the exhaust cam close the to intake cam with the exhaust cams pointing horizontally to the front of the bike. With the exhaust cam in this position, there will be a punch mark at the top. Put the tooth above this punch mark in the chain link you marked that was 12 or 13 over. Zip-tie the chain to the exhaust cam.
  2. Reseat exhaust cam. The punch mark on the left side of the exhaust sprocket will align with the top of the head. It will be one link high. Go back and check that the I is still centered in the timing plug hole
    1. the intake cams point back
    2. the exhaust cams point frontward
    3. the rear punch mark on the intake is aligned or slight high with the top of the head
    4. the front punch mark of the exhaust sprocket is aligned with the top of the head
  3. Bolt and torque exhaust cam, torque intake if you've had it off.
  4. Install chain tensioner (wind it up, hold the screwdriver with two hands, use the third hand to put hold tensioner in place, and fourth hand to bolt it up, then release screwdriver and put end bolt in it.
  5. Remove zip ties on intake sprocket, exhaust sprocket, and ratchet holding TDC. Remove ratchet and replace both plugs.
  6. Put on valve cover and two hoses, reinstall tank and seat and go riding.
