It is on the harmonic balancer. It will have numbers from -10 to 0 then up to 40(?). Two bolts attached to the block hold a pointer to the numbers on the harmonic balancer.
Also this engine has a plug with a black end called the spout it is usually close to the distributor this has to be unplugged to set the timing correctly.This being unplugged puts the engine at base timing.
Ford Escorts from 91 to present don't have timing marks because the timing is controlled by the engine computer.
It has the same look compared to it, but a different grille
I need diagrams for both the timing marks and timing diagram for 1999 Ford Taurus 3.0 Vin S DOHC
on the timing cover above the harmonic balancer leon
get at it from the bottom get a white marker and mark the timing spot then go up top and you should be able to see it
The top timing mark is a notch on the head. It lines up with an arrow on one of the O's cut out in the timing gear. The bottom timing mark is on the crankshaft gear and it lines up with a mark on the oil pump housing.
The 1996 Ford 5.0 liter engine timing marks can be found on the main pulley. The timing marks will be scattered around the outside of the pulley.
The camshaft gear has a notch on one of the open holes in the sprocket. You line this up with the mark on the head. The lower crank srocket is lined up with the mark on the oil pump. If you aren't experienced I would suggest you hire someone to replace your timing belt.
you just do what mark on the crank is TDC
All timing marks are based on the #1 cylinder
I thought 1997 was the last year they made the Ford Aspire.
I have a 96 ford ranger 2.3. On the crank timing, does the mark on the plastic cover TC mean top dead center?
If you are asking about valve timing there are two marks. One on the top which is a mark on the cam pulley which is lined up with the mark on the head and there is a mark on the crankshaft pulley which is aligned with a mark on the oil pump housing.
2.4l dohc balance shaft timing mark, crankshaft sprocket timing mark,oil pump timing mark and camshaft TWO timing marks 2.4l sohc balance shft timing mark, crankshaft timing mark, oil pump timing mark and ONE camshaft timing mark. it is complicated only that everymark must be bang on, if not the pistons will hit the valves and YOU get to rebuild engine.
on the hermonic balancer
Get a timing light, they sell them in an auto parts store about 30 bucks, shine it on the surpentine belt, and you should be able to see the mark.
should just be one on the driver side frame rail about halfway mark
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.
2 marks lined up
The timing marks are on the distributor side of the engine.....under a quarter size cover on the flywheel housing held in place by a thru bolt
On the cam the mark that has a T next to it. There should be two marks and only one w/ a T next to it. That meas TDC.

There is no timing mark for the crank pulley. It has a ring behind it with teeth. One of the teeth are missing. The crankshaft position sender picks up a magnetic electrical pulse that determines when that cylinder is to fire. The timing is controlled by the PCM (Power Control Module). The timing can't be set.
The timing mark is a line that goes across the harmonic balancer that should line up with the mark on the timing chain cover. It is on the drivers side on the bottom of the timing cover.
