You have two "timings" to set on your Twin cam. The cams must be correctly timed to each other and then the combination must be timed to the pinion gear that drives the cams.

Now, Twin Cam engines are NOT my expertise but in all other Harley engines, the timing mark that you time the cam with has nothing to do with top dead center position of the crankshaft. There is a specific mark on the pinion gear that the cam has to be timed to or the timing will be incorrect. Knowing the way Harley does things, the same is true with the TC engine.

Good Luck
Steve

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.

The Night rider site is not set up so that one can ask a question. It's more a site that offers information about "how to" stuff so that you can read and learn how to do a job or verify that you have done the job correctly.

According to your response, I'm assuming you have good compression and you're confident in your work as the cams are concerned. Now, the problem seems to be more electrical rather than mechanical. Have you checked for spark at the plugs? The Twin Cam engines have a compression sensor. If this sensor does not sense compression, the plugs won't fire. This could be your problem since you installed the compression releases. Have you somehow over ridden these sensors?

Good Luck

P.S. I have no formal training with the Twin Cam enignes nor do I work on them. I've got all I want to do with the older models. Especially the Shovelheads. It's gotten very difficult to find a Shovelhead mechanic these days. The last year for the Shovel was 1984 for most models.

Timing marks for the Dodge 2.4L caravan, 2000


To align both sets of timing marks, turn engine crankshaft to the right with belt on cam and crank. Once you have done this the crankshaft alignment mark (on front of crankshaft gear) will line up with mark to the rear of gear on engine block.The two cam gear timing marks should be alines across from one another. The right cam gear is the intake side and the left side is the exhaust side. After removing the belt turn the exhaust cam down 1/2 notch. Timing mark on exhaust 1/2 notch down from the intake side. Install new belt and recheck everything to make sure it's all correct. Hope this will help you.

I need the timing marks for a 2000 escort with sigle over head cam.


The timing marks are a arrow on your cam gear, and a dot on your cylinder head; align them.

Your crank gear has a tab, and the engine has a groove; align them.

After aligning the marks and putting your timing belt on, turn the engine 2 complete turns to insure the marks are still aligned; As long as the marks still align, you're done.

I hope this helps you, and if you need further assistance let me know.
