The cam sprocket has an "E" adjacent to the timing mark which lines up at 12 o'clock with the V mark on the camshaft seal cover. There is a notch mark on the lower timing belt sprocket that aligns with the mark on the engine front cover at 12 o'clock. These must be set on the proper stroke of the engine as well. Recommend the purchase of a Haynes Repair Manual for your Tracker (1986-2001). It's a fairly complicated 27 step procedure and must be done exactly right. I'm doing that very task on my 97' Tracker right now (it's cold!). Much good advice to keep you from ruining the engine. You can get the manual at your local car parts store - not too expensive <$20, well worth it. Good Luck

What do the timing gear marks mean on a Chevy 250 engine?

the mark on the camshaft timing gear needs to line up with the mark on the crankshaft timing gear to ensure the camshaft is in proper time with the crankshaft. Keep in mind that the marks will only line-up every other revolution of the engine due to the crankshaft spinning twice as fast as the camshaft.

What is the timing chain?

In a four-stroke overhead-cam engine, the timing chain connects the crankshaft to the camshaft. The camshaft opens and closes the valves in the cylinders and turns at half the speed of the crankshaft. Many engines now have a cog-belt instead of a chain.

How VVTI works?

It is a variable valve timing innovations from toyota, where in power and fuel efficiency can be optimized by varying the timing of the camshaft with respect to the crankshaft of an engine,by retarding or advancing the camshaft by a certain phase angles.A conventional engine has it's camshaft rotate half the crankshaft rotation and the performance of a such engine would be in it's peak efficiency for a single speed only.Engineers developed a technology to overcome this in-efficiencies by introducing variable valve timing where camshaft rotation can advance or retard with respect to the crankshaft,hence optimising performance and fuel efficiency.

How does a timing belt function in a car?

The timing belt of a vehicle is responsible for linking the activities of the crankshaft and camshaft. A damaged timing belt could be responsible for a faulty engine.

Is a camshaft the same thing as a crankshaft?

The crankshaft is turned by the pistons going up and down. The cam shaft is driven by the timing belt or chain that is turned by the crank shaft. The camshaft on a four cycle engine turns 2 to 1 crankshaft revolution. The cams on the camshaft operate the intake and exhaust valves. intake valve on one revolution and exhaust on the next.

What is a cam sprocket?

A cam sprocket is a part which is attached to one end of a cam shaft in an engine. A cam sprocket, along with the timing belt maintain the timing between the camshaft and crankshaft, which ensures that the engine runs properly.

What is the difference between a camshaft and a crankshaft?

The connecting rods and pistons are connected to the crankshaft. Ignition of the air/fuel mixture in the combustion chamber pushes the pistons down which rotates the crankshaft which generates the engines torque/power. The camshaft controls the opening and closing of the valves which allows the air/fuel mixture to flow in and out of the engine. The camshaft is driven by the crankshaft and is kept in proper sequence by a timing belt/chain or gears.

Where is the timing chain gear on a 78 linncoln town car 460 cid?

The timing chain is located on the front of the engine behind the water pump. The top gear is the camshaft and the bottom is the crankshaft.

How do you adjust cam timing on a 5.0 mustang?

for pre-95 Mustang 5.0 Camshaft Timing is changed by moving the camshaft in relation to the crankshaft. By advancing the camshaft the valves open and close earlier in relation to the position on the crankshaft. By retarding the camshaft the valves open and close later in relation to the position of the crankshaft. A degree wheel as well as other tools are needed for this procedure. Some aftermarket timing gears have extra keyways cut into the crankshaft gear to provide alternative adjustments for advancing or retarding the camshaft. Offset bushings or adjusting keyways are also sold to adjust the timing by a few degrees to account for manufacturing inaccuracies. The bottom line is if you do not know what you are doing, this is one of the areas that you can do a lot of damage to your engine. Tread carefully.
