Looking at the engine from the front of the vehicle, find the crankshaft pulley, it should be below the fan pulley (toward the ground). There is a small mark on the crankshaft pulley. Also mounted on the engine the is a piece of metal that looks like teeth kinda looks something like this - ---vvvvvvvvvv/\vvv--- Those are your timing marks. Each tooth is one degree and the larger concave space is TDC of the compression stroke for the #1 cylinder

I could be wrong, but I have a Vortec 350 in a GMC truck and I think the computer handles the ignition timing. If your talking about valve timing I would assume there are marks on the timing gears like the days of old, but I haven't torn the timing cover off of mine yet.

How do you put timing in Mazda R2 engine?

There are 3 timing marks to consider on timing the Mazda r2 just like any engine. crank timing, fuel injection timing and the valve timing. these 3 have markers to align. The crankshaft have timing marks on the pulley pointed by a pointing rod. 4 lines marks the timing. the crankshaft is dead center on the first cylinder whene the pointer is pointed on the center of the foul lines. The injection pump is marked by a line on the pulley and the notch on the plate of the front cover. The camshaft is marked the same way. Be sure that you rotate the pulley clockwise to align these marks to ensure tightness of the timing belt.

How do you time a Mazda 2200 R2 diesel engine?

Timing an engine requires that it have spark plugs, a diesel engine only has glow plus, no timing required. Now, if the valve to piston timing is off, you will need to replace the timing belt or chain, aligning the timing marks then. Get a repair manual like a Chilton's.

Where can i find a timing chain diagram for 292 ford motor?

Unless you're fortunate enough to find a repair manual, doubt you'll find a diagram. The key in replacing the chain and gears is proper timing mark alignment. Have your timing marks turned towards the left side of the engine (this should be the oil filter side) and there should be twelve pins on the chain between the timing marks on the gears. If you try to align the marks like a later model engine (that is, pointing towards one another) well,...............................

Why would a 1991 Toyota Celica 2.2 16 valve still have trouble starting after replacing the timing belt with a timing belt kit and setting the timing marks?

Providing that you used a shop manuals info, everything should be working fine. However, if you did not set the timing marks to match before you removed the old belt (or even if it broke off) it won't start.Also, try reasing any trouble code from the computer, by disconeecting the neg bat terminal for like 10 secs. In reality you have not stated what made you replace the belt in the first place, understand.If it was that the belt broke off while driving, then I do hope you set the timing marks at the lower crankshaft and upper Camshaft. (there are marks for this). That's why its important to have the vehicles shop manual. Also, I hope you used a timing light to do the final touch. good luck.AnswerThe upper timing mark is really hard to see clean off the bearing housing behind the cam gear mark it with a whiteout pen or touchup paint then align the crank timing using the same method. As for your ground and resetting the ecu I hope you pulled ground before doing a timing belt>? Once you get the belt on turn the car over by hand twice min. Look and see if your timing marks align still. If they don't then pull the belt and do it again. It's easy to jump teeth.
