Diagram timing of v6 engine of liberty 2001 model


2001 , no such ani-mule !
"Introduced for the 2002 model year as a replacement for the Cherokee (XJ),"
you meant manufactures date not model and reg. date. sure.
2002 !
3.7L V6 (cop spark ) chain drive cams....
timing ( cam or spark?)
"Ignition timing is controlled by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). No adjustment is possible"
so Cam timing (alldata.com covers this in detail)
why not post the context, Im doing what.?
im doing a 60k belt swap
or it slipped. or think id did.
or just put in a new head or cam? see , context is 100% important.
im here, going to there.....
im on line, and it shows 4 engines, i think that is wrong, but...

you must be asking chain cam sprocket timing.
im at alldata.com (or FSM)
there are 37 install steps, im not sure what step you want me
to pluck out. but here is my guess. step 8 ,9,10
  1. Install both secondary chains onto the idler sprocket. Align two plated links on the secondary chains to be visible through the two lower openings on the idler sprocket (4 o'clock and 8 o'clock). Once the secondary timing chains are installed, position special tool 8429 to hold chains in place for installation.
  2. Align primary chain double plated links with the timing mark at 12 o'clock on the idler sprocket.
  3. Align the primary chain single plated link with the timing mark at 6 o'clock on the crankshaft sprocket.
step 12:
Install all chains, crankshaft sprocket, and idler sprocket as an assembly . After guiding both secondary chains through the block and cylinder head openings, affix chains with a elastic strap or equivalent. This will maintain tension on chains to aid in installation. Align the timing mark on the idler sprocket gear to the timing mark on the counterbalance shaft drive gear, then seat idler sprocket fully . Before installing idler sprocket bolt, lubricate washer with oil, and tighten idler sprocket assembly retaining bolt to 25 ft. lbs. (34 Nm).

step 13:
  1. Align left camshaft sprocket "L" dot to plated link on chain.
  2. Align right camshaft sprocket "R" dot to plated link on chain.

step 15/16
  1. Remove Special Tool 8429, then attach both sprockets to camshafts. Remove excess oil from bolts, then Install sprocket bolts, but do not tighten at this time.
  2. Verify that all plated links are aligned with the marks on all sprockets and the "V6" marks on camshaft sprockets are at the 12 o'clock position.

do ask questions, or login to alldata.com or mitchels
or get a real FSM.
its nothing trivial.

in fact get the book before the job. so are perpared.

hi, prob good idea with this will be to slacken off the wheel push the wheel forward and fit a chain the correct length for the set up you have, count the links in the chain you have on the bike and get one 2 links shorter, mark a link on the chain with paint or sim turn the wheel and count the link plates, ie 1 plate is 2 links, so start on the 1 next to the marked 1 turning the wheel counting the plates 2 4 6 8 10 etc and end on the marked 1 this will give you the number of links already on the bike

    Can not keep chain on bar. Tried 2 different


    The inside part of the chain are called drive links. I think when the chains came off the first time (loose chain?) some of these links were slightly deformed (burred). Take a flat file to the burrs on the sides of the drive links. Once repaired keep your chain properly tensioned.

    3ec97ad.jpg

    ec9104e.gif
    Chain adjustment
    1. Make sure the chain brake is off (gloves will protest your fingers).
    2. If necessary, loosen the bar nuts that are clamping the clutch cover in place (or whatever holds the clutch cover and bar on). They don't need these really loose - finger tight will do.
    3. Ease the tension adjustment until the chain is obviously loose.
    4. Using one hand, hold the nose of the bar up.
    5. While holding the nose up, adjust the tensioner so that the center of the chain just touches the underside of the bar, add a touch more.
    6. Continue holding the nose of the bar up & tighten up the bar nuts / bolts / quick-release system. HTH
    Lou
    If no burrs please repost. This has piqued my interest. I think a brand new chain will operate correctly.

    Crank knocks on my electra hellbilly when i pedal hard


    The Electra Hellbilly has a three piece crank/bottome bracket. There are many things that can cause a knocking noise on your bike. I will give you a few places that you can check but you may need to take it to your local bike shop.
    1st. Check the pedals. Take a 15 mm open end wrench or pedal wrench and makes sure the pedal are tight. Also check the pedals for any play in the bearings or tight spots. If they seem to have any issues, try a new set of pedals. Test ride.
    2nd. Make sure the crankarms are tight. Use a 14mm socket wrench. You may need to remove a cover over the nut with a small flat head screwdrive. If you have a torque wrench, they should be between 25 and 35 ft lbs. Test ride.
    3rd. Check the chain tightness. It should have just a small amount of play in the chain. Also check the chain for tight links or bad links. Do this by either flipping the bike, putting it in a stand or having someone hold the rear of the bike up while pedaling and watching for the chain to not flow over the cog in the like the rest of the links. If you find a tight link you will have the work it loose by hand, going back and forth with the tight link your hand and lubing it with something like tri-flow. Test Ride.
    4th. The last two solutions are better off adjusted but your local bike shop. You need to check the bottom bracket and rear hub. We can start with the hub. While standing over the rear wheel, move it side to side. If you feel any play then your hub is out of adjustment. Adjusting the hub requires cone wrenches so unless you have the tools it will be less expensive to have it done. For the bottom bracket, grab one of the crankarms and move it side to side, if there is any play here then it requires adjustment. Once again it requires special bicycle specific tools so it would be less expensive just to have the repair done.

    Hope this helps. Let me know if you need any other help. You can contact me at elijah@starbikesfl.com. Thank you

    a) Place the check ball end of tensioner into the shallow end of Special Tool 8186.
    b) Using hand pressure, slowly depress tensioner until oil is purged from tensioner.
    13. Reset timing chain tensioner using the following procedure:
    a) Position cylinder plunger into the deeper end of Special Tool 8186.
    b) Apply a downward force until tensioner is reset. NOTE: If oil was not first purged from the tensioner, use slight finger pressure to assist the center arm pin of Special Tool 8186 to unseat the tensioner's check ball. CAUTION: Ensure the tensioner is properly reset. The tensioner body must bottom against the top edge of Special Tool 8186. Failure to properly perform the resetting procedure may cause tensioner jamming.
    14. Install the reset chain tensioner into the right cylinder head.
    15. Position tensioner retaining plate and tighten bolts to 12 Nm (105 in. lbs.).
    16. Starting at the right cylinder bank, insert a 3/8" square drive extension with a breaker bar into intake camshaft drive hub. Rotate camshaft until the camshaft hub aligns to the camshaft sprocket and damper attaching holes. Install the sprocket attaching bolts and tighten to 28 Nm (250 in. lbs.).
    17. Turn the left side camshaft by inserting a 3/8" square drive extension with a breaker bar into intake camshaft drive hub and rotate camshaft until the sprocket attaching bolts can be installed. Tighten sprocket bolts to 28 Nm (250 in. lbs.).
    18. Rotate engine slightly clockwise to remove timing chain slack, if necessary.
    19. To arm the timing chain tensioner: Use a flat bladed pry tool to gently pry tensioner arm towards the tensioner slightly. Then, release the tensioner arm. Verify the tensioner is armed (extends).
    20. Install the timing chain cover, crankshaft damper, and cylinder head covers.
    21. Install camshaft position sensor and connect electrical connector.

    Hope this helps!
