If the cam is under spring pressure at the timing mark it wants to move so you have to hold a stationary ratchet on it and then turn everything twice to verify that you got the three timing marks all set at the same time.

on thew Montero 3.0 the distributor is two teeth back under the #2 mark under the distributor cap even though the books say line it up to #1

Timing need to be set on 76 350 Buick regal whats the degree btdc


How do you know the timing needs to be set? Check library for a repair manual. Usually the timing marks are marked on the front balancer pully mark the designated mark with something like whiteout so you can see it properly with a timing light.

Do I need to remve pully on crankshaft, How do Itime engine


No, you don't need to remove the pully.

Here's how you set the timing:

You will need a timing light and a 1/2 inch or 13mm wrench.

1. Take a rag and clean the timing marks on the pulley and the timing cover. If you have any white out type correction fluid, you can also paint the marks white, to make them easier to see.

2. Start the engine and run until it is warm... about 5 minutes (the upper radiator hose will be warm).

3. Shut off the engine and find the timing connector, a grey plastic plug in the wiring harness near the distributor. Unplug the timing connector.

4. Loosen (but do not remove) the nut holding the distributor to the engine.

5. Connect your timing light. The magnetic pickup goes on the number 1 plug wire (number one is the front cylinder in your engine) and the other two leads connect to the battery, red on positive, black on negative.

6. Start the engine and point the timing light at the timing marks on the timing cover. You should be able to see the mark on the pulley as well. Gently rotate the distributor until the timing mark on the pully aligns with the 10 degree BTDC (before top dead center) mark. You might want to scribe a mark on your distributor before you start so that if you accidentally move the distributor too far and the engine dies, you can put it back where it was in order to restart the engine.

Once you have the timing set to 10 deg BTDC, shut the engine off, retighten the distributor nut and reconnect the timing connector.

I know how to kinda do the timing but when i have the timing light on the marks i dont know which mark is suppose to be the 4 deg tdc.


Your auto's spec sheet should tell you what your timing degree should be. For example, a 1969 Ford 429, 6 Degrees BTDC @ 550 rpm in drive gear - with automatic trans, with a firing order of 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8. All this means is that you want to line up the pointer on the timing light with the 6° timing mark when the engine is idling in gear at 550 rpm. As you can see, it also says something about "BTDC" for this Ford. There is also an "ATDC." "Before Top Dead Center" and "After Top Dead Center" - top dead center is the point where the piston reaches the highest point in the cylinder and that is when the compression is the greatest. Now, your timing marks with have a line labeled "0" with marks above and below it, and depending on which way the wheel rotates, you will see the lines before the "0" (BTDC), or after the "0" (ATDC)

Firing order and timing for 292 ford


The firing order is 1-5-4-8-6-3-7-2, distributor turns counter-clockwise. The ignition timing can be set using marks on the vibration damper. The wide mark is TDC (Top Dead Center), each mark after the wide mark represents 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 degrees before TDC. Set timing 3 degrees BTDC (Before Top Dead Center). In addition, valve timingis set like this: Intake opens: 12 degrees BTDC
Exhaust Closes: 8 degrees ATDC

How do i set the timming on 94 mercury villager van


you only set base timing to 15 degrees BTDC (before top dead center).

Ignition Timing
  1. s1v~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Parking brake control should be applied.
    Depress the parking brake pedal, and warm the engine to the normal operating temperature.
  1. Turn off all electrical loads.
  1. Rev the engine to 2000-3000 rpm two or three times and allow the engine to return to the idle.
  1. Turn off the engine and disconnect the throttle position sensor electrical connector. (not really necessary)
  1. Start the engine and rev it to 2000-3000 rpm two or three times and allow the engine to return to the idle.
  1. Check the idle speed. The idle speed should be between 700-800 rpm in PARK (P) or NEUTRAL (N) position.
  1. NOTE: Make sure that the timing pointer is pointing to the 15° Before Top Dead Center (BTDC) mark on the crankshaft pulley. Each notch on the crankshaft pulley represents 5 degrees.
    Check the ignition timing with a timing light.
