the gears are grinding
Run a compression check. If the compression is up the cam timing is probably right.
Timing marks for twin cam 1.6L B6 engine. When crank pulley is at TDC on the compression stroke, 'E' & 'I' on the camshaft pulleys should be at 12 o'clock. Too easy.
no power to starter on Nissan 300zx twin turbo
It is a chaion driven twin cam engine no belt to worry about
It has a timing chain. A MAIN timing chain runs around the twin over head cams and crankshaft and a SECONDARY chain (balance shaft chain) runs off the crankshaft to turn the water pump. Both have timing marks and the balance shaft chain runs behind the timing chain.
the timing marks on the cam sprockets need to lined up. I would not attempt this repair if you don't know what you're doing. If the timing is off and you rotate the engine, you can cause severe damage to your valves.
The 1997 Nissan truck does not have a Twin Cam. It is a 2.4 sohc 4-cyl.
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.
