timing marks

Postby kpoindex08 » October 5th, 2016, 2:22 am

Hello, this is my first post. I am looking for information on settled the timing marks on my 87 d16a1 engine. I completely understand the 5mm camshaft holding pins. However I am at a loss on how to set the crankshaft to TDC cylinder #1. I have the FSM and it states to use the white mark on the crankshaft pulley and the pointer on the timing cover. My problem is I don't have a timing cover and there are no marks painted white on my pulley just 2 red dots that look like someone put them there with a small bingo dobber. Also there are no marks on the crankshaft cog to line up with the arrow on the oil pump. Photos of both camshaft and crankshaft cogs on a known properly set mechanical timing Engine would really help me out.

I have a complete set of timing belt covers for sale. You really shouldn't run without these on the motor.

I purchased it with them missing. Unaware of there importance. I purchased a complete set locally but still don't know what notch to line up. My crankshaft pulley has 3 notches, 2 close together and one a little ways clockwise of the 2 notches. They are not painted. Thank you for the offer. If anyone can help I'm still in need.

The two close marks are your 12 degrees marks. If you don't have a set able timing gun then use these two. The single mark is for using the timing gun set at 12 degrees.

Yep - the single mark is TDC.
