Line up the marks on the gears with the off colored links on the timing chain.

There are marks on the chain that coordinate with marks on the timing gear. Make sure these line up when putting on the timing chain, and you should be good to go. Getting to the timing chain is the real battle.

The timing marks on a 1969 Ford 360 should line up between the timing chain and the cam sprocket. This sets the initial timing which can later be adjusted using a timing light.

If you are asking about timing gears with a belt system, you have to line the timing marks up with the marks on the gears. If you want to know about chain gear alignment please re-ask with vehicle specifics and I can answer that also.

The timing marks on a 93 Dodge Colt with a 1.5 liter engine are located on the timing chain and the cam sprocket. They must line up with each other to ensure proper initial timing.

When you remove and replace your cam and chain and install new cams and chains, you should notice little marks on your cams, and crankshaft. Those marks should line up with marks on your block or heads. That is true for any engine. If you do not see the marks, get someone who knows what he is doing to make them line up. Then put on your chain and attach the ends with your monkey link. Someone may correct me since it has been years. I always set the timing with a timing light. The old chain had stretched and worn. The new one is new. They are different lengths. Your timing will be off. You will need to reset the timing. There are two marks. One on the block and one on the drive unit for the fan belt. You have an adjustment on the distributor to get the timing right. You hook up a wire on your timing light to the first spark plug on the right side. When the flashing light hits the two at the same time, your timing is correct. If you removed the cam and did not replace the chain, you missed a good opportunity. Normally, the chain wears out long before the cam. Soon, you will throw the chain and be stuck on the side of the road if not in the middle. Hopefully you will not be passing someone.

line up the marks on the belt to the marks on the timing wheels

It's a load of a job,Remove radaitor, all hoses, pullys, belts,Valve covers, timing chain tensioner and guides. replace pump which is run off the timing chain. Make sure to line up the 3 marks on timing chain so you have correct timing. Reinstall tensioner and make sure it is recharged(all the way out) Turn engine by hand with a wrench to make sure chain is tight and timing is correct(Very important). Reassemble engine in reverse order. This would be a good time to replace the timing chain and tensioner if over 100,000 miles, good luck.

Generally, for most single cam engines, there is a dot or mark on the cam sprocket and a similar mark on the crank sprocket. Point them at each other. the timing marks on the crank and cam sprockets must be lined up with marks on the timing chain in an overhead cam engine

Set your #1 cylinder to TDC on the compression stroke.

User Avatar

on the crank pully there is a mark that must line up with a mark on the egine block, the cam shaft pullys there are holes that will line up with holes in the engine block, use pins to make sure they line up, once all marks are lined up then just put on the chain and set the tensioner

User Avatar

Timing marks are on the top of the timing gear rear cover. With the cover off, these marks will line up with the timing marks on the intake and exhaust gears when the crankshaft gear timing mark faces down to its mark at the bottom. Good luck!

User Avatar

pull the timing cover back off and make sure that the timing marks on the timing gears are parallel (in line) with each other cuz more than likely the mark is off there fore making your timing out which wont let your rotor line up
