Hi,the piston should be at top dead centre,there will be a mark on the crank to indicate this,the inlet and exhaust valves shold be both fully closed,there is normally a mark on each camshaft which normally lies in a straight line with the tappet cover,once you have them all lined up put the chain on and assemble the tensioner,,,turn the motor over by hand to make sure nothing is binding and that all the valves are opening and closing correctly,hope this helps...cheeers

Timming chain broke


place no 1 piston at TDC compression stroke. There are procedures for the timing of the balance shafts but if it is only the timing chain I will go to that
Align uniquely coloured chain link with intake camshaft sprocket timing mark-- INT--. ( this will be pointing at the 2 o'clock position)
install timing chain and sprocket as an assembly
align first matching coloured chain link crankshaft timing mark (5 o'clock position)
align the second matching coloured chain link with exhaust cam shaft timing mark--EXH ( at the 11 o'clock position
There is a special procedure to reset the balance tensioner and it is different to the timing chain procedure.

To reset cam shaft timing chain tensioner push piston fully and turn clockwise until locked
Once the tensioner has been compressed ensure the distance from end to end is 2.83 inches . If not repeat the resetting process
vehicles 30.000 miles the tensioner is released when the engine is first started . In vehicles over 30.000 miles manually release tensioner by tapping the plunger
Note cam shaft and crank shaft sprockets bolts MUST only be used once. If you want details on the balancer chain procedure then make a comment in the box
use tension wrench and a degree gauge
cam bolts are tensioned to 63 ft lbs + 30 degrees
crank shaft pulley is tensioned to 74 ft lbs + 75 degrees

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

Vehicle Will Not Start


You can set the timing 180 degrees out if you only go by the cam position I think. Basically the fuel and exhaust phase look the same by cam position. I believe you need to ensure the piston position at the time you install the timing chain by removing the plug and confirming the piston is at the top and the power stroke is just completed.

I have a Husqvara 550 chainsaw. After chain popped and I put it back on, the chain won't move. It's on the gear and everything. Is there a brake or something preventing the chain from mov


There will be a chain brake, grab the brake handle and pull it firmly back to the top handle, this should didd engage the brake, if the chain has de railed the drive lonks will have burs on them which will make it tight in the bar, you need to file all these burs off.

I had to replace my timing chain but forgot to mark the position of the chain on the sprocket. how do i replace correctly?


you need to find a thing called tdc top dead centre. if you look on you tube you will find loads of videos to explan it. tdc means where your piston is at its highest and your valves are shut.

Timing chain 110 hymoto pit bike


Put the piston at TDC (Top Dead Center) by lining up the timing marks on the flywheel and stator. Put the cylinder head back together with the cam installed so the high points of the cam lobes are pointing kind of downward. Pull the cam chain taught on the front side of the engine. Put the chain on the cam gear such that, when bolted to the cam, the index mark or marks are in the proper position.

The proper position depends on what markings are on the cam. Some bikes have a single mark; an arrow, a straight line or an "O". The mark should line up with the center-line of the crankshaft. If the cam has two marks opposite each other, the lines should be parallel with the gasket surface. You will need to rotate the unbolted cam left or right just a bit in order to match up the bolt holes to the gear holes.

Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer?

Clutch Drum Removal


Special tools may be require and can usually be purchased form the maker of your saw.

Often the spark plug is removed, the piston positioned to just before TDC, and a length of starter cord or rope fed into the cylinder. This allows the the clutch to be be removed without damaging the piston or cylinder.
1. Don't put all of starter cord or rope into cylinder.
2. Ensure the piston is above the exhaust port.
3. The threads are often left handed.
