Depending on the vehicle make model etc. There should be timing marks on the gears and then again on the timing belt. You must align the marks on each. Also dependant on make model etc. you may need to look up # of teeth from center to each end and then count to make sure that you are aligning with the proper mark.
You can set the timing on a Mitsubishi mirage 1997 going to the setting and finding the setting properties. The setup should be the second on the listing.
Timing and idle setting maybe computer controlled and not adjustable. If they are adjustable should be 825-850 RPM
The answer should be in your owner's manual in the last few pages near the back.
yes, unhook the vaccum hose to the distribuetor to set the timing.
you should be able to get a timing book from your local parts store
The timing depends on model and year. Try 8 degrees BTDC. It should run fine at that setting.
The timing should not need setting unless you have a failed timing belt or head repair of sorts. after the new parts for the head are all in place set no 1 piston to top dead center, line the cam sprocket and the crank so both timing marks are together going north south put on the timing belt and tighten the pensioner up you have base timing hook up a timing light loosen the distributor and locate the timing window on the bell housing (near the head) mark the recommended setting with a white marker and and the required setting on the window. start the engine and using your light line up your setting or as you desire!
Unless you have had the timing belt off or it has broken the timing should still be correct. The way you set the timing is by taking the timing belt off and lining up the timing marks and put the belt back on. I added a link to a text how-to for setting the timing on the Zetec engine. -ZX2Fast
Should be 12 degrees before top dead center
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.
Assuming that you know how to use a timing light to adjust timing: 1. Disconnect the electronic spark control at the distributor. 2. The timing should be 10 degrees btdc. Rotate the distributor to achieve the proper setting at the timing mark on the crankshaft.
just the top one that is the vacum advance, timing should be 2 degrees BTDC with vacum advance line removed and blocke
I will assume you asking about a petrol motor... usually its incorrect timing settings, find out what the timing setting should be, then adjust to suit a leaky exhaust system will also cause this
Set it at zero degrees. The computer compensates it.
#1 piston should be at TDC and both valves closed (compression stroke)
The timing should be at 6 degrees for a non-turbo, with the distributor vacuum lines disconnected and plugged. It will be at 9 degrees for a turbo, with a test connector for idle setting grounded.
OK, just to get started its a timing belt. Your most likely good for 90 OR 100K.As long as you dont beat the bag out of it constantly. The '04 Corolla has a timing CHAIN. and all indications state is should be changed @ 120K miles.
The timing marks should be dot to dot.
Dwell should be 28-32 (approx. .016) Don't remember timing settings sorry
Setting the timing on a Polaris 500 Sportsman is not a hard process. First someone should go to the menu and pick the timer function. Then, choose the time the time someone desires.
The timing marks are dots on the ends of the camshaft and crankshaft. They are on the sprocket ends where the timing belt or chain connects. The dots should be pointing towards each other for proper setting. The cam dot should be pointing down and the crankshaft dot pointing up. The dots or marks can only be viewed when the timing chain cover is removed. hope this helps...
even with a cam it should be between 10 an 12 degrees
Kind of hard to see the timing marks while the engine is running if you don't have a timing light. Don't know what year or make your vehicle is, but if it is an older model, you can "set" the timing by ear by rotating the distributor slowly clockwise and/or clockwise until you get the best "purr" of the engine. This method should suffice until you can get a timing light for more precise setting. but if the car want start how do you check it
The factory setting is still a good place to start, although you can increase the timing 2 degrees at a time until peak performance is achieved, or until the engine starts pinging.
The timing should be set to Top Dead Center (TDC), but you must disconnect the electronic spark advance feature. Unfortunately, I don't know how to disconnect the spark advance. The timing chain is all that can be set. There is no way to set the timing as the distributor is not adjustable.
