Where are the timing marks on the camshaft and crankshaft of a 96 Cavalier?

The timing marks are dots on the ends of the camshaft and crankshaft. They are on the sprocket ends where the timing belt or chain connects. The dots should be pointing towards each other for proper setting. The cam dot should be pointing down and the crankshaft dot pointing up. The dots or marks can only be viewed when the timing chain cover is removed. hope this helps...


What are the timing degrees on a 2.7L Dodge Intrepid?

Timing degrees? The timing is not adjustable, the timing chain is set with the dots and the plated links lined up and the computer takes it from there. When the chain is being installed the #1 piston will not be at top dead center.

Do you have the procedures on how to change the timing chain on a 1986 Camaro Z28?

yes you do actually in order to get to the timing chain you have to remove your belts and draining the coolant from the car would be good too as you have to go through the water pump to get to it.sometimes removing a wheel or two will make it easier once you get to the timing chain get the chain off and both sprockets make sure u remember where the dots on the sprockets are because the new ones have to have the dots in the same exact positions as the old ones were in the installation after that is just the reverse of taking it off


How do you replace the timing chain in a 1979 Chevy Nova?

Pull the timing chain cover, that typically involves removing the dampener pulley and the water pump. Position the engine to TDC (that's when the two dots of the timing chain sprockets are pointing to each other) then remove the old sprockets, pulling the chain with them. Put the new chain on new sprockets (don't mix a new chain with old sprockets) with the dots pointing toward each other and slide them on the crankshaft and camshaft respectively. Bolt them down using a little locktite if that's to your liking. Put the covers, water pump and pulley back... and you're done.


How do I find the timing mark for a 1992 Izusu Trooper?

The timing marks are located on the lower section of the timing belt cover above the crankshaft pulley. The mark is on the crankshaft pulley. The timing cannot be adjusted on the 3.2L engines. The timing is computer controlled by the ecm wich receives a signal from the crankshaft position sensor. The timing marks for the timing belt are on the camshaft pulleys ( aligned with dots on the front of the metal rear piece of the timing chain cover) and the lip behind the crankshaft timing belt pulley. It is a half circle slot that you align with a horizontal line on the oil pump at about 3 oclock ( right hand side ).


How do you set timing marks on a 1996 Chevrolet 5.7 vortec?

If you are asking about the timing chain, Here it is, The crank gear dot should be stright up that is 12 o-clock, that means #1 piston is at TDC on the compression stroke. ( JUST FIRED ) The cam gear dot should be stright down and in a stright line with the crank gear dot, that means the intake and exhaust valves are closed and on the compression stroke. Install both gears with out chain first to aline dots up. Then remove cam gear only and install chain, put gear and chain back on and make sure the dots are lined up over top of each other. Your done.

How do you align timing marks on 2000 Dodge Durango 4.7L?

There should be dots on both gears. Place cam at 6 o clock crank at 12. They will line up together in between the 2. It's easier if you put engine in this position (old gears with cover off) before you remove the old chain.


How do you line up the timing gear with the cam on a Briggs and stratton riding lawn mower motor?

All the Briggs that I've worked on you align the marks on both gears dot to dot but without a model # I can't say for positive. But if you see two dots, align them and it should be correct.


How do you replace the timing chain on a 1986 firebird with a 305?

Remove everything in front of the timing cover. Loosen the oil pan. Remove the timing cover. Replace the chain and gears by lining up the dots on the old gears and installing the new gears with the same alignment. Clean everything real good and put it all back together.

How do you align timing marks on 1978 Chevy 350?

With #1 piston at top dead center ( TDC ) on compression stroke. All the way to the top of cylinder. The cam and crank gear dots line stright up over top of each other. Crank gear is at 12 oclock The cam gear is at 6oclock That is the dots.


Setting a 305 timing chain?

there should be little dots on the crank and cam gears.... just line them up when you put the cam and the timing chain on and you should be good. the cam gear you cant screw up because it has a dowel the goes into the cam gear and the crank is keyed so it gets pressed on the right spot... very easy


How do you align the timing marks on the crankshaft and cam shaft pulleys on a 1988 22RE?

the timing chain should have three bright colored links in it turn the crank to get the keyway straight up do this with a wrench not the starter that should put the dot on the sprocket close to the bottom then turn the camto get the dot close to the straight up position then take the chain find the single bright link this goes on the crank dot the two that are together goes around the cam dot you may have to move the cam alittle to get it on the dot after you get it on take a marker and mark where the dots are and turn the engine by the crank with a wrench turn it two complete turns the dots should come back to your marks not nessarily the bright links be sure the tensioner is in when you do this


How do you set the time when you put timing chain back in Do you have dots to line up Do you get piston up top on compression?

The easy way is to make sure you don't move anything when you take the chain off. Otherwise, there are usually markings on the engine that you can line the markings on the pulleys up with.


When replacing the timing chain where do I set the timing marks to so yo I can put the chain back on?

Usually the bottom sprocket has the dot on the top and the top sprocket has the dot on the bottom. I did encounter one once that had both dots on the top, so be aware of that possibility when you are setting the valves. If the engine is at #1TDC, both dots should be aligned, #1 cylinder would have both valves closed, #6 would have the exhaust valve open. If that's not what you see, rotate the crankshaft one turn and check again.


How do you change timing chain 94 cheverolet 5.7?

Remove accessories, balancer with a puller, front timing cover. Align 2 dots on cam/crank gear-crank at 12/cam at 6. Remove cam gear (3 bolts) Slip new chain over both gears, reinstall cam gear with dots aligned. The only truly tough part of the job is getting a good seal on the cover all the way around. the critical junction is where it meets the oil pan. If it leaks after, you will need new gaskets & have to pull balancer again to fix. Make sure cover flange nice & flat all the way around or pound it out or use aftermarket. Don't overdo the torque since metal is thin & use a sealer, get your specs & go in sequence. Get some tips from experienced builders re:timing cover for your engine. The only specialized tools-balancer puller, balancer installer or impact wrench & a huge socket that fits balancer bolt to turn the engine to align the dots.
