Are you CERTAIN the two cams have not been switched? Chances are there will be the letter "E" on the side of the exhaust cam gear and/or an "I" on the intake cam. The diagram below is for a WR250. I don't have a manual for an rmz250. Your cams are probably the same. Note that the caps should tighten to only 7.2 Ft lbs. (10nm / 1.0 m-kg ). Many other things could be wrong. Was the cam assembly removed incorrectly? Doing it incorrectly can damage the cam, cam caps and cylinder head. Is the cam runout out of specifications ( .0012 )? Are you using a standard torque pattern? ( Cris-cross from inside to outside ) for installing. The reverse when dis-assembling. It may be best to let the shop figure out the problem and do the repair on this one.

After overhaul, pistons rings, bearings, valve job. Coolant runs out of the exhaust and intake ports. What is the problem


Sounds like either a bad headgasket or a cracked coolant journal in the head, or possibly a blocked passage that is forcing cooling out at the point of lowest resistance.

Ok 1990 geo storm 1,6 litre dohc replaced water pump replaced 3 valves replaced head gaskets replaced timing belt car wont start any ideas?


90 Storm, must be in Canada, 1,6 (the comma tells me this)
the storm is a:
The car is really an Isuzu Impulse minus some of that car's more expensive features.
my guess is you drove the this 4EX1 engine until the cam belt slipped. yes> if yes you bent valves.????????????
so does compression exceed 150psi on all 4 cylinders now?
we use the cylinder leak down test in all DOHC .
if not , back to the drawing board.
if yes, the we check spark next, then try test fuel.
when did the engine last run , last week,month , year,?
who did your valves, a real machine shop or kid down the street.
a read shop pressure tests the head ,and warp checks it and
then makes sure the valves are ready for long service.
are the head bolts at 58 ft/lbs
did you use sealant on the 3 cap caps, per the FSM book.
if not , top end oiling will fail. and cams wrecked.

the 1.6l DOHC has no HLA's
the lash on valves must be checked, and this is corrected with SHIMS.

a pro machine shop does the for you,did they:?
when rebuilding engines, its best to read the factory service manual first. FSM so you know the special steps just for this engine.
ISUZU engine it is.



quote.
1.6L Twin Camshaft Engine
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the cylinder head or valve cover.
  3. Position the No. 1 cylinder at TDC on its compression stroke.
The notch on the crankshaft pulley should align with the 0 degrees mark on the timing gear case. Make sure the rocker arms on the No. 1 cylinder are loose and the rockers on the No. 4 cylinder are tight. If not, turn the crankshaft one complete revolution and align the marks again.
  1. Using a feeler gauge, measure the clearance between the cam lobe and the selective shim on the intake and exhaust valves on the No. 1 cylinder, then the intake valves on the No. 2 cylinder and the exhaust valves on the No. 3 cylinder. Note readings.
  2. Rotate the crankshaft 360 degrees. Using a feeler gauge, measure the clearance between the cam lobe and the selective shim on the intake and exhaust valves on the No. 4 cylinder, then the intake valves on the No. 3 cylinder and the exhaust valves on the No. 2 cylinder. Note readings.
  3. The valve clearance obtained on the exhaust valves should be between 0.008-0.012 in. (0.20-0.30mm). If not, replace the selective shim by turning the camshaft lobe downward and installing tool J-38413-2 or J-38413-3 (valve lash spring spacer) between the camshaft journal and the cam lobe next to the selective shim. Turn cam lobe upward and remove the selective shim. Install new shim using the selective shim chart.
The rear camshaft bearing caps must be removed to remove the selective shim.
  1. The valve clearance obtained on the intake valves should be between 0.004-0.008 in. (0.10-0.20mm). If not, replace the selective shim by turning the camshaft lobe downward and installing tool J-38413-2 or J-38413-3 between the camshaft journal and the cam lobe next to the selective shim. Turn cam lobe upward and remove the selective shim. Install new shim using the selective shim chart.
  2. When the adjustment is completed, install the cylinder head covers and connect the battery negative cable. Start the engine and check for leaks.

see those 2 marks, and crank must be at TDC. mark first.

Right head cam seized up


overhead cam heads do not usually have cam bearings. If your cam has seized, it properly damaged the cam journals. Your heads might have removable cam journals, but not likely.

Aligning crankshaft marks


Camshaft timing procedure for 1982 harley davidson xlh 1000 cc
On the pinion gear there is a timing mark.
This mark will line up with the rear cylinder intake cam.
There are 3 marks on this cam.
One will line up with the mark on the pinion gear.
One other mark will line up with rear exhaust cam and the front mark on the rear intake cam will line up with a mark on the front cylinder intake cam.
The front intake cam also has a mark on it that will line up with the front exhaust cam.

2004 -2006 Suzuki RMZ250:

Intake 0.10 ∼ 0.15 mm (0.0039 ∼ 0.0059 inches)
Exhaust 0.17 ∼ 0.22 mm (0.0067 ∼ 0.0087 inches)

I need the timing points for a lincoln ls 2000 with a 3.9


Hello

248015_84785203_1.gif


CAUTION:Rotating the crankshaft in a counterclockwise direction may cause engine damage. Crankshaft journals are directionally machined. Rotating the crankshaft counterclockwise can raise burrs on bearing surfaces, reducing engine life. Verify that the crankshaft keyway is in the nine o'clock position.

248015_84785204_1.gif

CAUTION:The crankshaft keyway must remain in the nine o'clock position until the cams are located, or damage to the valves may occur. Rotate the LH and RH intake and exhaust camshafts to locate them in their neutral positions.

Put in new rod and main bearings oil drops to zero after warmup 1997 2.2 honda accord put in manual gage to check for sure also put in new headgasket and rings good oil pressure to start then gone what am...


Well the cam bearings will have to do with this also,if it has them,if not it can be the wear in the cam carriers.But most likely the crankshaft journals are worn to much,the crank would need turning,and over size rod,and main bearings would need to be installed.

Noisy engine suggesting cam belt prob at 50,000 miles


Do you mean the "Timing Belt"? There is NO Cam belt.. .there is, however, a "Cam Timing Chain"... connects the Intake & Exhaust cams together under the cam cover (valve cover). Unless you actually INSPECT the Timing Belt, no one can know... the noise might be anything! Valve tappets, timing belt Idler pully, tensioner pully, water pump bearing, you name it. Solution: Take vehicle into Hyundai Service Center - pay the diagnostic fee - they will give you an estimate of repairs (if needed) (parts, labor, tax, time-frame, etc.). This way you'll know if there's actually a problem and what it is, as well as what's required to fix it... OR that there's nothing at all wrong.

Valve timing


hello
ok to start intsall by putting the proper cams in their proper spots. they should be marked "FR IN" for front intake "FR EX" for front exhaust and so on. the caps should be marked as well. then tighten them down in a crisscross pattern at 15ftlbs. be sure that the cam journals were lubed before install as well. this will prevent siezure. if both cam sprockets were removed, install the front cylinders cam sprockets first. remove the crankshaft timing hole plug on the left side crankcase cover. and the crank bolt access plug as well. turn the crank counter clockwise till the marks FT notch aligns.
install the cam sprockets and cam flanges so that they read as follows. the timing marks FI for intake and FE for exhaust are flush with the valve cover gasket surface outwards opposing. then align the cam bolt holes while lobes are facing upward. you can then turn the crank counterclockwise to install the bolts. then you can remove the cap bolts to install the cam chain guide plate and instll it.
for the rear. turn the crank so that you see the same timing marks as mentioned earlier. with the crank on the FT position. and the cam sprocket marks to the outside flush with the gasket surface.
next turn the crank counter clockwise 3/4 turn or 270 degrees and align the RT mark in the flywheel inspection hole. then you will install the cam sprockets and chain and cam as the same as you did for the front.
i hope this helps. thanks
