Craftsman LHER propane weed trimmer.

I have replaced an exhaust valve in a Craftsman LHER propane trimmer and need to know where the timing marks are located. I have found a dot on the crankshaft gear but on the camshaft can only find a vertical mark. Is this the timing mark and should it point up or point down?

1987 toyota 22re. head was taken off by siomeone who did not mark or align anything. I need to know how to get it on the compression stroke.


With the head off, the bottom end doesn't know compression from exhaust from squat. The crank just keeps pushing the pistons up and down. You set the #1 cylinder at the top of travel, the mark on the pointer scale must be at zero, then when you have the head on with the camshaft sprocket on its mark, and the timing belt or chain on, you should be at TDC on the compression stroke. To verify, both valves on #1 should be closed-the camshaft lobes for #1 should be more or less pointing up-away from the valves.
See? The valve train is what determines compression stroke vs. exhaust stroke. On compression, both valves are closed. On the exhaust stroke, the exhaust valve will be open. As long as you get the camshaft sprocket on the right mark and the crank sprocket at zero-or on its mark-the timing should be right.

Smell cabin


A modern, well maintained vehicle's exhaust is virtually orderless once the catalytic converter has fired up. What you could smelling is oil leaking from the engine, for instance, from the valve cover that then drips down onto the hot exhaust where it vaporizes. That oil vapor is then ingesting into the passenger compartment through the fresh air intakes. Try airing out the cabin and then set the ventilation controls to recirculation mode to see if the problem persists. Also, the oil vapor will only happen when the exhaust is hot. So if you don't smell it when you first start the engine, that could be confirming this cause. Look at your engine and see if you see oil and dirt oozing from the valve cover gasket. You can try to tighten the oil cover fasterners to see if it stops the leak, but the best approach would be to replace the valve cover gasket.

My 2000 Focus will not go over 15 mph. The rpm. drops down to nothing, likes it pulling a heavy load.


Hi, there are a couple possibilities that come to mind. First would be a clogged exhaust system. To check for this, you have to disconnect the exhaust pipe from the exhaust manifold. It will be loud, but start the engine to see if it runs better. If yes, go to a muffler shop and have them check to see if it's the muffler or the catalytic converter that is clogged. You only need to replace the clogged unit.
If it isn't a clogged exhaust, I would check valve timing. If the timing belt has sliiped a couple of teeth, you could get this behavior. Usually, though, the engine would cough and backfire when the timing slips.
To check valve timing, you have to pull the valve cover off. First align the timing mark on the crankshaft pulley as shown below. Then take off the valve cover and check to see if the camshafts are symmetrical as shown in the second picture. If not, you will need a new timing belt. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Need to know how to set the timing


Cylinder #1 set at TDC, compression stroke. Cam marks level with head, aligned with mark on cover, or if unclear where to mark the cam: SET Cam at point where intake valve has just closed and both valves are shut on cyl. #1, cam gear marks should start to appear more clearly to technician, along with corresponding alignment points. This is ballpark. Remember, on clockwise rotation, after cylinder #1 intake valve(s) are shut, the cam will continue to rotate 90 degrees and come to rest at a position in which both exhaust and intake valves are at their maximum lash point. (the most play) Hopefully if you get this close, you will decipher the marks that exist on your Bavarian machine.
