Most likely the keyway slot will be the zero mark. more times than not, position will be straight up. Refer to a manual
The sprocket on the nose of the crankshaft that drives the cam sprocket.
If the crank has 48 and the sprocket 12 then 48/12=4. The wheel will turn 4 times for each turn of the crank.
Chain is on the smallest sprocket on the crank and on the largest sprocket on the rear wheel
i would assume you have cranks with a built in sprocket, if this is the case, you can't
Look closly at the sprocket and you will see a small dot or indentation,you align both dots (cam and crank sprocket dots)
If it is a V8 set the motor at top dead center #1 cylinder a the very top and the cam mark should line up with the middle mark on the crank sprocket or o degrees advanced. it doesnt have a belt, it has a chain. there should be one or two lil dots on the chain and like a very small like on the sprocket, make the dots on the chain line up exact with the sprocket and your good There is one mark (dot) on your came sprocket and one mark (dot) on your crank sprocket right about your crank "key" slot. Align those two marks (cam sprocket mark down, crank sprocket mark up). Now turn your crank 2 complete revolutions and verify that those two marks are in the same location that you originally set them. Obviously you will have to have the chain on. I just installed my millionth and one yesterday.
Dodge Dakota V6's didn't have a crank sensor until 1992.
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
bottom crank sprocket dot to oil pan idle sprocket dot up both cams set v8 to top
No Crank Sensor until 1992
The timing marks for the cam sprocket on a 98 S10 is on the front. The marks for the crank shaft is on the oil pump gear.
Line crank shaft pulley timing mark on tc mark on timing belt cover. Look at cam shaft timing belt sprocket and locate the small triangle (not diamond shape) located on the plate attached to the timing sprocket. Referencing the timing sprocket look approximately at 5:00 o'clock under the timing sprocket and locate the other small triangle. Line these 2 marks up. Put timing belt on. Make sure the cam shaft sprocket and crank shaft sprocket do not turn while installing the belt. The crank shaft pulley must be removed in order to get the timing belt on.
it is located on the topside of the crank sprocket behind the timing cover.
It runs off of the front of the crankshaft, under the crank sprocket and crank pulley. You have to to remove the timing chain/belt.
well first you have to see if your cranks are 1 piece 2 piece or 3 piece. if theyre three piece then all you have to do is take off the crank that the side the sprocket is on and take off your chain, then you should be able to just slip your sprocket off, and put your new one on, then attach your crank back on and bolt it on then re attach your chain and your good as new
Answermake sure you line up the marks on the crank and cam and you should be fineDon't waste your time pulling the crank sprocket, get a large cold chisel and smack that baby one good time. The sprocket will split in half as its a lot softer material than the crank.
It will more than likely be the Glow Plugs but there is also a chance that it could be the crankshaft sprocket coming loose. A friend of mine had the same problem and changed the plugs which made no difference, we then checked the crank sprocket, which had come loose and the keyway had worn down allowing the timing to shift about a tooth either way. We changed the sprocket, bolt and t-belt and was fine for about 5 months. On his way to work one morning he had to be towed in, his crank bolt had SNAPPED because of the high points still remaining on the crank itself from the bolt coming loose allowing the sprocket to chatter on the crank. We ended up replacing the engine.
assuming youre replacing the timing chain. the cam and crank sprocket marks are to point directly towards each other.
Inside the distributor
The sensor is a "hall effect" sensor, to align it; just match timing marks on cam sprocket to mark on crank sprocket (so they are as close as possible).
In a sense, motors do have cranks installed. It is the starter that acts as a crank to turn the engine in order to create a spark and start it. Any device, whether manual or electrical, used to rotate the motor in order for it to start, is called a crank.
Pick up the vine that is next to Big Bad Bill and tie it to Sprocket and Hubbs, after that tie some Oobla Doobla to the vine then click the chime to call for Dundee. Finally to get Sprocket and Hubbs out, you have to play a quick game call crank the croc.
A 1989 Dakota uses the distributor pick up plate for the crank signal. It is the plastic plate under the rotor inside the distributor cap.
ON MY 2.2 4CYLINDER ( 1999 ) YOU HAVE TO PULL THE TIMING CHAIN COVER TO SEE THE " TIMING MARKS " . ON THE CRANK SPROCKET IT IS A PUNCH MARK.....ON THE CAM SPROCKET IT IS A SMALL HOLE IN THE SPROCKET . BOTH MUST LINE UP WITH TABS ON THE CHAIN TENSIONER. THE REST OF THE TIMING IS DONE BY CRANK & CAM SENSORS AND THE COMPUTER.
