Disconnect any vacuum hoses from the distributor and plug them. Then you loosen the distributor hold down screws and turn it clockwise to advance the timing or counter clockwise to retard it. Tighten the hold downs, reconnect the vacuum lines and away you go.

The point of gap on a Chevrolet 4.3 liter 6 cylinder is J7. This is also known as spark plugs.

According to www . motorcraft . com ( no spaces ) unless the engine compartment decal shows different The point gap is .027 inch The point dwell is 35 to 40 and The ignition timing is 6 degrees BTDC for 200 cubic inch ( 3.3 liter ) straight 6 cylinder engine

on the balencer there is a timing mark and om the motor theres a tab there is also a mark on the cam gear, when lined up, both marks on the crank gear and cam gear point up.

No timing belt , the 2.4 liter 4 cylinder engine in a 2007 Hyundai Sonata has a timing CHAIN It actually has 2 timing chains One for the cams and one for a combination balance shaft box,oil pump, and sump screen. The box is the weak point of the engine and loves to disintegrate and is currently only available at the dealer for $1200.

4.0 liter EFI ( over head valve / pushrod design ) has ( 1 ) timing CHAIN 4.0 liter SOHC ( single over head cam ) has ( 3 ) timing CHAINS 5.0 liter V8 ( over head valve / pushrod design ) has ( 1 ) timing CHAIN

In the first model year of the Ford Mustang : The 170 cubic inch inline 6 cylinder is : ( point gap is .024 to .026 inch ) ( ignition timing is 6 * BTDC for the manual transmission and 12 * for the automatic transmission ) Also , the point dwell is 35 to 38 at idle

you set timing by the marks on the cam shaft and the crank shaft. they should point at together to make it run right.

If you are looking for the number one cylinder on the engine you need to know which cylinder it is by a picture.If you tell me the year make and model i can tell you. Also timing rotation on a distribuator is the order in which the cylinders fire. The router hits the point inside the distibuator in the same fashion the cylinders fire. So cylinder one fires first the router hits the point for cyliner one then the next point could be cyliner 8. thisch means cylinder 8 is firing now.

The camshaft pulley has a notch on the side of the teeth. You must line this notch up level with the top, front side of the cylinder head. (where the valve cover bolts on)

The 1994 Mitsubishi 3.0 liter engine timing marks can be found on the front main pulley. The timing marks will be scattered around the outside of the front main pulley.

At least in the model year of 1971 the correct timing is set with the vacuum hose to the distrubutor disconected and the headlights on (not hi-beam) to 6 degrees... adjust dwell (point gap) before timing.

It's an engine size, it means one cylinder can hold 4.4 liters of air at the lowest point of the stroke.

( 6 ) degrees BTDC for the manual transmission ( 12 ) degrees BTDC for the automatic transmission

You need to go to a car parts store, and get arepair manual for your car.They cost about $16.00Or, go to a Public Library. Hi, being an Automobile Engineer by qualification. I believe that the timing mark for any car has to be the first cylinder at the point of the light blinking from the timing torch. But it also depends on no of cylinders and thr RPM of the engine at idle, and also it is recommended the the timingbe a little bit in "Advance", than retard.

Number 1 cylinder, which would be the first cylinder on the drivers side of the engine. You want the rotor pointing towards the 5 O'Clock position looking at the distributor from the front.

User Avatar

no it is not it may take longer for the 2 liter to boil but the temperature of the water is the same

User Avatar

Yes the rotor should be pointing to the #1 cylinder when you are installing the distributor.

User Avatar

Firing order is 153624, # 1 is front cylinder, distributor rotates clockwise timing: 4BTDC auto trany TDC standard trany point gap is .019 point dwell is 31-34

After finding top dead center by turning engine over till compression on #1 cylinder and setting distibutor with rotor at #1 cylinder . engine was ready to be turned over . engine started now at this point is it necessary to remove a wire for crank sensor or ignition system to set the timing w a light.

User Avatar

It should be pointing to the #1 cylinder, That is the first spark plug on the driver's side up front.

User Avatar

Take the spark plug out of the #1 cylinder. Have someone stick a finger over the hole (but not into it, naturally). Bump the starter until a burst of air pushes their finger out. That's the point where the #1 cylinder is at Top Dead Center. Replace the spark plug and spark plug wire. Unbolt the distributor to loosen it. Hook up the timing light.. the red cable to the battery positive, the ground to either the battery negative or a good ground point, and the last cable goes on the wire to the #1 spark plug. Start the vehicle, and aim the timing light at the timing marks. Rotate the distributor to advance or retard the ignition timing until it's right.

first off a 4.3 liter is not a 4 cylinder it is a 6. however if you need to set the base timing,you will need to disconect the base timing wire from the computer underneith the dash,(if it is computer controlled) it will be a brown wire or a brown wire with a white stripe. Goto the library for more information on which wire to disconnect. next loosen the distributor bolt and connect a timing light to number one plug wire. Start the vehicle and point the light at the cranshaft pully and rotate the distributor to correct the base timing according to factory specs, which will show up as a scribed line on the crankshaft pully. the single most important thing is to get a book from the library and watchout for the cooling fan while the engine is running (be carefull!!!)

What is the point gap for a 351 Cleveland

User Avatar

there will be a timing mark on the harmonic balancer. and a timing tab on the timing chain cover. point your timing light at the timing tab and you should see the timing mark on balancer. if not timing is way out.markstang.
