It's more to it than aligning the marks since the cam pulleys turn about three times or more to one turn of the camshaft on this engine. You need to find someone that is experienced on this vehicle.

1999 lexus LX470 does the timing mark on the left bank line up with the single dot or the double dot if i line up with the double dot (as per manual) the pully for the timing belt points down 180 degr


looking from the front of the engine , the pulley mark on the LH cam pulley lines (12o'clock) up with the centre of the 2 notches and the RH lines up (12 o'clock) with the single notch. On the crank one mark will be lined up with a single notch at about the 1 o'clock position and another at the 3 o'clock position lined up with a series of dots. Ensure that you have the piston on TDC no1 first and align the crank marks first.

sounds like a timing belt issue. Toyotas will run forever if you change the timing belt every 100,000 km, or 65,000 miles

What's your problem?installing heads


place crank at TDC. turn cam until all the valves over number one are closed. your valve train will now be in time. however there should be timing marks on the cam gear and crank gear, with the motor at TDC align the marks and your valve train will be in time. you dont have to have your valve adjusted, you can either watch you pushrods move or watch the valves move in an overhead cam application

When putting new cylinder head howmany valves need to be open?


not sure what your asking but this is an overhead cam motor which means the valves that are on the high lobe of the cam are going to be open when you install the head onto the motor and there is nothing you can do about this.just make sure the crank timing marks are aligned were they should be and the cam marks are aligned when you install the head so as not to have to turn the motor much until you get all the timing marks properly lined up and the timing belt on.

I have an 2000 es 300 lexus... how do you line up the timing marks after you re[place the belt? do you really have to take off one ofthe cam gears to change water pump?


For a newbie, it will be a trial-and-error process, if you see that the marks are not in alignment, loosen off the tensioner, and then move the cam gear a bit with a wrench once the belt has been lifted off it a little, and then re-check the alignment after tightening the tensioner. It shouldn't take too long before you do get the correct alignment. As for taking off one of the cam gears to remove the water pump...if it's in the way, you're not going to have a choice.

I have found the crankshaft marks but I cannot find marks to align the to over head cams on my car, the dohc are run from 1 wheel. I am trying to re-align the timing belt as i think they have gone off.


if it's a dual overhead cam then each head has two cams and two pully's, a single overhead cam engine has one cam and one pulley on each head. if the belt has more than 60,000 miles on it you should replace it. you need to find out if the engine is an interference engine or not to determine the level of damage caused if the belt has jumped or slipped. your overhead cam timing marks are usually on the cam faces and the backing plate behind the cam or sometimes there's two marks on the cam that you align with the surface of the head behind them. the first thing you need is a diagram of the belt routing and mark positions because timing marks are very important especially on an interference engine. starting or cranking an interference engine with the timing marks misaligned can bend all your valves or even punch holes in your pistons! so proper alignment is crucial, good luck.
