My 95 Ford Escort 1.9 timing belt jumped off and I can't get the timing marks aligned. It's off half a tooth in either direction and the valves all come to the top when cranking with valve cover off. Is there a trick to the timing belt installation like using the key way as the timing mark? I did have it started some time ago and it made a racket so I assumed valves were damaged but all valves come to the same height but won't start now.

I'm trying to install a new timing belt for my 1999 ford escort zx2 with a vct motor. I aligned the camshafts, did a full rotation and they came out of alignment. How do you align the camshafts with the variable time cam?


It is normal for the exhaust cam to be slightly off during a rotation because of the nature of the VCT mechanisim. It uses oil pressure to change the cam angle. Since there is no oil pressure with the engine off, it won't stop in the same place eve ... 1999 Ford Escort
