The Haynes manual claims it's 10 degrees BTDC. Also, the really correct timing should be listed on the emissions sticker inside of the hood. 10 degrees BTDC matches what my 1991 Manual Trans Storm's hood says (and seems to run well at).
The timing scale is on the timing belt cover down by the crankshaft pulley (at the other end of the power steering pump belt). There is a small notch in the crankshaft pulley, on the side closest to the timing scale, that is easier to see if you put some whiteout fluid in the notch.
Before setting the timing, let the engine warm to operating temperature, and short pins 1 and 3 of the ALDL connector (located above and to the right of your passenger's feet) with a paperclip to prevent the ECM from advancing the timing while you are setting it. Don't forget to remove the paperclip when you're done!
the clutch is really easy to install and the timing belt is not a problem if its shot The 1993 Geo Storm is not an interference motor, because my belt just broke,(Nov 2005) and I got the same question answered on the following website: "www.nutzandboltz.org". My daughter's 1990 Geo Storm timing belt broke while she was driving it. She tried to start the engine but it would not run. We were told that it was an interference motor and that the motor was now shot. Being a little skeptical of the "experts" I put a new timing belt on and the engine started and has run fine for several months (clutch just went out). So much for the experts, by the way how ard is it to change the clutch? Thanks M in Omaha
On the 1.8 DOHC GSi model the cam shaft timing sprockets have little marks along the edge of them. The two marks MUST be lined up closest to each other. The marks are very small and you may want to use your fingernail to find them. On the 1.6 SOHC model, the camshaft timing sprocket has the same type mark, but it must be at the 9 O'clock position. It should be EXACTLY on the top plan of the cylinderhead mating surface with the valve cover. On all Storm engines, the lower crankshaft timing sprocket has a small notch. That MUST be at the 12 O'clock position. It will line up with a small little triangle on the oil pump housing.
