LOOK FOR AN INSPECTION COVER ON THE LH SIDE OF ENGINE, REMOVE COVER, ON TOP OF CYLINDER THERE SHOULD BE ANOTHER COVER, ALSO REMOVE. REMOVE SPARK PLUG, USE A THIS SCREW DRIVER, PUT IT INTO THE SPARK PLUG HOLE CAREFULLY ROTATE THE ROTOR IN THE DIRECTION OF ENGINE ROTATION WATCH FOR THE SCREW DRIVER TO SLOWLY COME OUT OF THE CYLINDER IT WIIL RISE AND THEN FALL, AT THE PIONT OF DIRECTION CHANGE THIS IS TDC, REVERSE IT TO TDC, SEE IF YOU CAN SEE INTO THE INSPECTION HOLE THERE SHOULD BE A LINE AND A SMALL NOTCH ON THE SIDE OF THE HOLE. NOW LOOK AT THE TOP OF THE ENGINE WERE YOU REMOVED THE SECOND COVER THE CAM SPROCKET WILL HAVE A DOT ON IT, THIS SHOULD BE POINTED TO THE TOP. THIS IS IN TIME. AGIAN, PISTON AT TDC, ROTOR FIRE MARK LINED UP WITH NOTCH IN INSPECTION HOLE, CAM SPROCKET DOT POINTED TO TOP OF CAM COVER, YOU MAY HAVE TO MAKE ONE MORE ROTATION TO GET ALL MARKS TO LINE UP AT THE SAME TIME. IF YOU HAVE REMOVED THE CAM YOU MAY HAVE TO WALK THE CHAIN AROUND THE SPROCKET TO GET IT INTO TIME, ALSO TAKE ANY DEFLECTION OUT OF CAM CHAIN.

How to change timing belts


There is a small cap on the top left side of the motor . If you take it off you will see the timing marks. To line up the 1 T F mark you will have to rotate the motor. This is done by removing the tappet cover in the center of the magneto on the back left corner of the motor . To rotate the motor insert a 17mm socket on a short breaker bar and turn. If you reach between the radiator an d the engine with a 10 mm wrench you can remove the timing belt covers without draining and removing the radiator. Take off both covers and look at the cam gears each one has a dot that should line up with the arrow on the back cam cover outside most edge. When the Cam arrows and dots line up , and the 1 T F is lined up , then the engine is correctly timed (mechanically speaking). Now loosen the belt tensioners and remove the belts. Check that the tensioner bearings are in good order, if the bearings are bad, replace the tensioner assembly. Put on the new belts, tension them, and double check the timing marks. If the marks do not line up, loosen the tensioner and adjust the belt. Check all the marks before you move anything , rotate gently , and do not force anything or you will be pulling a head off to replace bent valves.

Gentlemen, I have just replaced the timming belts


You do not put on a belt unless the cam and the crank are in the correct positions. You have to be very careful not to turn the motor and bend a valve. There is a small cap on the top left side of the motor . If you take it off you will see the timing marks. To line up the 1 T F mark you will have to rotate the motor. This is done by removing the tappet cover in the center of the magneto on the back left corner of the motor . To rotate the motor insert a 17mm socket on a short breaker bar and turn.

When the Cam arrows and dots line up , and the 1 T F is lined up , then the engine is correctly timed (mechanically speaking). Check all the marks before you move anything , rotate gently , and do not force anything or you will be pulling a head off to start over again.

How to set the time belt?


4 Cylinder diesel(4JX1) :
1 - Timing mark
2 - Cam pulley
3 - HP Oil pump pulley
4 - Tensioner pulley


suzman_0.jpg

6 Cylinder petrol:
Align crank(C) timing notch mark (1) to oil pump mark.
Align cam pulley(L+R) marks(3) to cylinder head marks
The cam belt has 3 marks, 2 lines and one mark that is actually a row of dots. Align the dots to the crank pulley groove mark(2) and align the other 2 lines to the cam pulley marks. Using a clothes peg to hold the belt to the cam pulleys works wonders to keep it in place while fitting. Please note the arrows on the belt and have them point in the direction of rotation - right to left side of engine
W - water pump pulley
I - Idler pulley
T - Tensioner pulley.

If for some reason you need to realign the cams on each bank :
Standing in front of the car and starting from YOUR left , looking at the cams you should see RE, RI, LI, LE on each of the camshafts.(R for right bank, L for left bank, I for intake and E for exhaust) Right bank camshafts are marked with one dot, left bank with 2 dots on the shaft itself. To align the camshafts to each other each cam shaft gear has a mark on it. Draw an imaginary line between the centre of the camshaft and the centre of the pulley. The alignment mark should be between the two along this imaginary line. The result will be that RI an RE will be at the top of each gear. The same with the left bank.

Putting in new cam shaft seals left side it was all lined up when i took it apart but i didnt loosen the valve lash and now when i got it back together when the timing mark lines up the cam sprocket doesnt...


Loosen the belt tensioner on that side , take the belt off and carefully rotate the cam to the timing mark. Do not force it , you don't want to bend a valve. You may have to turn the motor so there is room to turn the cam to the correct position. Make sure all the marks are lined up, put the belt back on, and reset the tensioner. Now double check the timing marks before finishing the reassembly.

When should I change timing belt?


I think Honda recommends 40,000 miles though your probably OK up to 60,000 miles. When in doubt (and for peace of mind) just replace them so you do not have to worry about bending your valves . It's easily done with out too many curse words by the home mechanic. With a 10 mm open end wrench take off the front belt covers. You can actually wiggle the bolts and the covers out with out draining and removing the radiators. Now take a 17 mm wrench and remove the valve type cap on the top left side of the engine,also remove the same cap on the back left side of the motor over the stator. Now put a 17 mm socket on a short breaker bar through the stator hole and rotate the motor until the T-1 mark is visible through the top hole. Now double check that the dots on the cam pulley's line up with the arrows on the back side of the covers still on the machine(outside edges). These are the cam timing marks. If everything lines up loosen the belt tensioner bolts and replace belts. Don't rotate the motor. Be sure and triple check that all the marks line up after tightening tensioner bolts. If all is OK reassemble in reverse order. bike should run exactly the same as it did before procedure.

The timing marks in the honda manual didn't work. I need the timing marks for a 1995 honda ST1100


Yes, the Honda manual is incorrect. Set the crank pulley at T1 with both camshaft pulley marks lining up. At this point you can install the right hand side camshafts all as per the manuals instructions. The manual is correct up to this point. Now turn the crank pulley clockwise until the T4 mark lines up and install the left hand side cams. Make sure the cam lobes for no 2 cylinder are facing each other and the lobes for no 4 cylinder are facing away from each other. The two dots on the cam gears will align up with the cylinder head surface. Cylinder identification as seen from sitting on the bike. Right hand side front is no 1, Right rear is no 3. Left front is no 2 and guess which one is no 4? Hopethis helps

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?

My 2003 Honda CRF 450 R Motorcycle won't start at all and the thing is it keeps giving of these explosions.


This sounds like it is out of time. You can remove the cam cover on the left hand side of the cylinder, remove the spark plug, rotate the motor to top dead center, this is when both valves are closed and the piston is at the top. confirm now that the two dots on the cam gear line up with the each other. If not, loosen the cam gear, remove the timing chain, line up the dots and rotate the cam til the two screw holes line up, reassemble. This should take care of your problem. I hope this helps.
