Hello, I need to set my cam timing for the rear cylinder. I just installed a new starter clutch and I do not want to bend the valves by not timing the bike properly. Thanks Dan.

It should be timed on the "T" mark for one cylinder & on the "I" mark (if there is one) for the other. The marks before the "T" mark are for ignition timing (firing marks).
Turn crankshaft manually two rotations before start the engine, in order to be sure for valves interference prevention!

How to set timing on a 98mercury mystique 4cylerder


There are no timing marks.There is is a slot in the end of the cam shafts.With number one cylinder at top dead center use a metal strip to align the slots and torque the cam cap bolts.CAUTION !! Torquing the caps when number one cylinder is not at the top may bend valves.

No just finished a valve replacement on 92 geo tracker 8v eng. set crank to TDC on #4 cyl and the cam to the proper alignment notch on rear valve cover and installed the new timing belt. However after all...


When timing belts are installed, the normal position of the crankshaft is for #1 cylinder to be at TDC. Here is a picture of the timing belt routing and the timing marks.

Hello crackinnutz: My name is Roger and I will help you. You will find the cam sensor located in the front of the right cylinder head.The sensor will be just below the lip of the valve cover and held in by a 10 mm. headed bolt. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

I have a fiat stilo petrol car and the timing belt has snapped on tickover would it bend a valve


Well you need to remove everything and check, but I would think it actually did bend a valve as the starter motor cranks the engine at high rpm as well.

How to replace a broken timing belt


Daewoo has interference engines in them, so if the timing belt broke while the engine was running, you will need to replace half of the valves which were bent when the pistons crashed into them when the cams stopped turning and the crank shaft continued to turn. Minimum of $700-1000.00 (usually more). If you do it all yourself and the valve guides are not damaged, still at least $400.00 worth of parts to fix. Pull plastic air dams around bottom of engine on front and right side . Support engine with jack. Drain antifreeze from engine and radiator. remove air filter housing and serpentine belt. remove front engine mount. remove cam belt cover. remove broken cam belt and check cam tensioner bearings and idler bearing as well. They are usually bad. Then remove spark plug cover. Remove valve cover. Remove intake from head. remove coil from head. remove heat shield from exhaust manifold then remove manifold from exhaust and from head. remove water hoses and connecting assemblies from side of head and rear of head. remove Cam shaft bearing caps loosening them all evenly so as not to bend cams. remove cams. remove head bolts. remove head. remove valve hydraulic lifters, compress valve springs and remove valve retainers and dissassemble valves. Clean everything very well. Make sure head is not damaged. Remove valve guide seals. install new valve guide seals, new valves. Seat valves with valve grinding compound. clean well. instal valves in reverse order of dissasembly. Before putting head on, make sure number 1 cylinder is at top dead center position. install head using proper torque of 18 ft # in a spiral application rotation from the center outward in a clockwise direction. Then do spiral rotation again tightening bolts each one-quarter turn. Repeat the tightening process two more times only turning the bolts one-quarter turn each time. Use new head bolts. They are designed to stretch in the process of installation and are not to be re-used. Align cams to proper orientation then bolt into place. do not overtorque cam bearing cap bolts. Less than 5 ft # of torque can stretch these bolts. Snug them then tighten them 90 degrees. Then tighten them another 90 degrees (quarter turn). Snug them all then go back and tighten all of them a quater turn, then go back and tighten all of them another quarter turn. Install the cam idler and tensioner and install the cam belt. then install the intake, exhaust and all other items in reverse order of assembly. Do not turn engine over unless you are sure you have the cam belt on with the crank shaft pulley aligned at top dead center and the intake and exhauste pulley marks aligned to their proper marks with the cam belt properly tensioned. You can't be even one tooth off. This must be right before you turn the engine over! Remove spark plugs and turn engine over by hand two rotation clockwise using a wrench on the center bolt of the crank shaft pulley. Check that the timing of cams is still perfect. If not, correct, retension cam belt, double check timing positions again then rotate engine two revolutions. Check cam timing positions again. The timing should not change! The engine should turn over relatively easily. If it feels like it doesn't want to turn, don't force it. You may have the timing off and be pressing a piston against a valve. If you are at this point, then you need to remove cam belt and unbolt cam shafts to release all tension on any of the valves. return the number one cylinder to top dead center position and then reinstall the cams and cam belt. Once it is assembled and in time, then reattatch the rest of the components that were removed in dissassembly. Do this in reverse order of dissassembly. then connect battery and fill radiator fluid. Start car.

Yamaha VStar 1100. Valve train noise after starter clutch repair.


The cam chain has stretched a bit making it look like its half a tooth out, the tensioner takes up the slack but makes the cam timing slightly out.
You could have timed the crank 280 degrees out
It should be timed on the T mark for one cylinder & on the I mark (if there is one) for the other.
The marks before the T mark are for ignition timing (firing marks)


Good Luck
Hope this helps.
(If it does then please mark this as 'useful')

How to set timing.


There are two timing marks on the crank. One is for the front cyclinder and the other is for the rear. When you line the front cylinder mark, the front cam has two horizontal lines that line up across the top of the head. Look at the cam lobes and make sure the exhaust lobes will be the next valves to open. Turn the crank and do the same for the rear cylinder. Make sur you remove the cam chain tensioners first and leave any slack in the chain on the tensioner side when installing them around the cams.

1983 toyota 22r/2.4 had head shaved .022 installed cam shaft 180 degrees out tryed to start noticed problem.corrected problem,in result intake valve appears to be staying open on cylinder 1and4.question is...


piston has contacted the valves that stay open. they are bent and you need to remove the head and replace them and then reinstall the head with the #1 piston at top dead center and the cams for the #1 cylinder both pointing down, this is the end of the compression stroke and the begining of the power stroke. at this point on the valve train and valve springs are affecting the valves, keeping them open and the rocker arms are not affecting the valves and should both be loose. set distributor to fire on cylinder #1.
