There should be punched marks on the cam sprockets which need to be lined up with factory punched marks on the rear timing belt cover, immediately behind and just above the sprocket. Line those 2 gears up and bring crank shaft damper to 0 degrees top dead center according to first mark on dampers, left side as you face the motor check to see if your distributor rotor is facing the number one terminal if not complete full rotation because motor is on exhaust stroke.

How do you align the timing marks for a 4-cylinder 2000 leganza?

After you take the front timing cover off and get the old timing belt off, there are 3 notches on the rear timing belt cover. I'm sure it is a twin overhead cam system, so you will have to read the sprockets on both cams. There are what looks like lines on both. On the left cam, you will want to to line it up with the intake manifold. There should be a line mark in between the words. Line it up with the left notch on top of the timing cover. One the right cam, you will have both intake manifold and exhaust manifold lines. Use the mark for the exhaust manifold, and line it up with the right side notch. Now you will have to look at the timing sprocket for the crankshaft. It appears to look like just a bar mark on the edge of the sprocket. Line that up with the notch on the bottom. You will have to use a hex wrench to adjust the belt tension on the tensioner pulley to get the belt on. Be sure not to let any of the sprockets move while you put the belt on or you will have to do the process over again.

What are the timing marks for a 1990 Geo Prizm?

Timing marks 1990 GEO Prizm GSI (4 AGE)The crank timing mark for the 1990 GEO Prizm GSI (4 AGE with twin overhead cam) is a notch found on the inside rim of the crank pulley. Set this notch to 0 for TDC on the Crank sprocket dust cover. The intake and exhaust cam sprockets have an indention on one tooth of the sprocket. Aline this dot with the crease in the back plate. The intake crease is a vertical crease at 12 oclock position and the exhaust is a vertical crease slightly before the 12 oclock position.If cam sprockets have been removed make sure you align the cam shafts before reinstalling sprockets. Set the knock pin of the intakse shaft to the 12 oclock position and the exhaust shaft to the 5 oclock position. Once this is done install the sprockets so their respective timing marks line up with the marks on the metal back plate.

First put the #1 piston all the way up in the cyl.Make sure your crank shaft timing mark is lined up.There's another timing mark on the left side as you look at the crank shaft on the other gear(intermeteate gear).It too must be lined up. Put your cam gears timing marks together with all the valves closed on #1 cyl.
