The timing mark is on the crank pulley, a little " V " cut. It gets aligned with the 8 degree BTDC mark on the degree scale just above the crank pulley on the timing belt cover. Use an induction timing light hooked up to the #1 spark plug wire (front of engine) and the battery. Painting the timing marks white helps to see. I use white out. Works good.

How do you set the timing in a 1995 Geo Tracker?

First you need a timing light which I assume you have. There is a notch on crank pulley,put a dab of white paint on it. Connect timing light, if off loosen bolt for distributor and adjust accordingly.Manual states 8 degrees BTDC @ 800 RPM. This is also assuming that all other components are in good working condition,timing belt etc.

Are a water pump and a timing belt on a 1996 geo tracker somehow?

HI, There are definitely a timing belt and a water pump on the engine. The timing belt is behind the cover that is on the front of the engine and when there you will also find the timing belt tensioner, they come as a set when you purchase them. The water pump is also at the front of the engine and sits at the left of the timing belt cover as you look at the engine, the pump is driven by the belt, you can't miss it. Happy repairing and good luck.Steve H.
