'timing marks' on a Mazda b6 engine?
The timing marks on the crank pulley are 2 little nicks about half the size of a pinhead about 1cm apart. The 'clockwise' one is the ignition timing mark. The one to it's left is TDC. To correctly fit timing belt, crank pulley should be at TDC on the compression stroke & 'E' & 'I' on the cam sprockets should be at 12 o'clock. It's that easy. But the camshafts can move on their own because of the valve spring pressure on the cam lobes, so make sure the camshafts don't move while your trying to fit the belt.
1987 Ford Laser double ohc turbo 4WD B6 engine replace timing belt where do the timing marks on the camshafts line up when top dead center?
The timing belt on the b6 & k8 motors should be changed every 60-80k miles depending on the wear of the belt. You can check the wear yourself by removing the valve cover on the b6 model where as the k8 is somewhat more difficult and will require removing the timing cover. If there are any nicks, frays, or cracks the belt should be replaced.
When replacing timing belt on a Ford Laser dohc turbo 4WD 1987 B6 the crank at top dead center what do the exhaust and intake camshaft timing marks line up with?
engine size is found on the engine, but all Mazda engines in the b and z family have the imprint of DOHC on the rocker-cover when they are dohc if you find an imprint of b6-XX-XX then you have a 1.6 and if dohc is found on the rockercover then it is a 1.6 dohc. if you see b8, then that is always a 1.8l SOHC engine
As far as I'm aware the engine is identical to that used in the MX5, so I'd assume yes it is an interference engine ^^Actually, the engines have the same displacement but that is the only similarity. The blocks are different, the transmissions are different and the heads are totally different. The mx5 engine is a B6 and the protege 1.6l is a ZM or ZM-DE depending on whether or not it is european. That…
