Answers :

TIMING MARKS ON CAMSHAFT SPROCKET A LITTLE SMALL SQUARE MARK ON TOP BOTH GEAR SPROCKETS ON CAMSHAFTS TIMING MARKS SHOULD BE IN THE 12 OCLOCK POSITION BOTH CAMSHAFT TIMING MARKS SHOULD BE LINED UP WITH TIMING MARKS REAR OF TIMING MARKS ON TOP OF CAMSHAFT SPROCKET HOUSING. IF STILL HAVING TROUBLE WITH FINDING THE TIMING MARKS.YOU NEED A HAYNES REPAIR MANUAL.
Ed ignore the two marks together, there should be two other single marks, it is the first single that you use the second single will be 4 teeth behind then the two dot 13 teeth from the second single dot. Again use the first single dot.

I want ti install timing chain in 350 chevy. What TDC marks are used if i use Zoom timing chain whith 3 key way and i use 4 degrees adv. I want TDC with the 4 degrees at crank. I know i put both dots at each other or line up dots. However what do i use with the 4 degree advance ? Is it my mark to line uo with the dit on cam shaft gear?


The timing chain is not that fine, nor do you care about advance with the chain. A single link on the chain is more like 15 degrees, and you will have no trouble deciding which is the best fit.TDC is always 0, and never 4 degrees advanced. ... 1983 Chevrolet Camaro

Replaced timing belt on a 97 contour. i know that the cams are lined up (kind of a full proof methed that ford used). the second notch on crank pulley lined up with the oil pan marking (with the side of the v that is closest to fire wall) this looked to be TDC center, by settiing and watching a screw driver on the piston. now with timing light, #1 plug apears to fire when second notch on crank pully is just about to reach the front side of the v oil pan mark. car will not fire on its own or wit

2001 Volvo S40: The car had the timing belt replaced. It is out of timing as it has a hard time starting, stumbles, idles up and down and then smooths out. The cam shaft on the exhaust with varibal timing gear is out of alignment with the cam lobs on the exhaust stroke on #1. Both the exhaust cam and intake cam have a dot between the front bolt holes. Are these dots to indicate the position of the intake and exhaust cam lobs. If so or not what reference point to a clock are these dots in r

When i first started the car it ran smooth after it went into closed loop is when the rpms started varring after i changed the timing belt. also when i pulled the water pump out the tube under the intake came out and had fun getting it back into place, the timing marks line up on the cam and the intake mark, but the exhaust looks like its half a tooth out so would this problem be timing related or vacuum like some of the other e-mail said. this is on a friend car would it hurt it if he drove it

I am trying to set the timing mark on a 1996 honda accord with a 2.2L 16 valve. The cam and crank mark are okay. The only one I am concerned with is for the oil pump and the balancer. I heard that to set the engine balancer I need to remove a 12mm bolt cap and insert a 6X100mm in order to line up the balancer. I noticed that the balancer pully has a dot for marking and everytime I insert the 6x100 mm screw it sets in three different positions. My question is what is the right position mark for t

Hi and thanks for your reply to my question re: ?timing marks? (not firing order) Problem is the diagrams that were sent are for a SOHC for a 4 Cylinder not a Quad Cam (DOHC) 6 Cylinder. I can see the marks on the Cams (top of motor) but I'm not sure how to a line the bottom mark on the crankshaft. I know I can just line up the top marks and just make sure not to move any but to make sure I would prefer to match them all up to be sure while replacing the timing belt. Also are the OEM belt kits a

Timing OK? I have a 1997 audi 2.8L and replaced the timing belt via the "mark belt and cam method" with a sharpie. when I took the old belt off the left cam rotated forward. Furthermore, to align the marks on the belt I rotated the cam back counter clock wise to its original position and put the belt on. All the marks line up on both cams. Is this ok or should I have rotated the cam clock wise until the marks got back around?


You did it the right way. If you tried to make a full cam revolution you would have hit the pistons with the valves. Put the lower timing cover and crank pulley back on. If the cam marks are aligned right and the mark on the lower timing cover lines ... 1999 Audi A4
