Re: ea timing chain replacement

To be more specific, where does the mark on the main cog need to be pointed?

Re: ea timing chain replacement

Ok, I have been told I need to word this differently! What I need to know is how to set up the cam shaft timing properly. Sorry, I'm only a girl!

Re: ea timing chain replacement

Not "only a girl" we're not sexist here I hope but you do need to demonstrate a little patient and you will get an answer. The timing marks on the crankshaft and auxiliary sprockets (bottom two) need to be facing each other at their closest adjacent point while at the same time the camshaft sprocket (the one at the top) is parallel to top of the head on the passenger / thermostat housing side. The number 1 piston should also be at TDC with the crankshaft aligned to the TDC mark on the timing cover.

It might pay to buy even a cheap Gregory's manual to do these sort of jobs. There are several other things you will need to know that are best found in a workshop manual to do this job if you haven't started already.

Re: ea timing chain replacement

Thanks for the advice, I wasn't being impatient, just that I was asking on behalf of my Mr and he kept changing his mind on the wording lol! I will pass on the info. He bought an eb for $500 for parts, now we just need to figure that one out because he likes it better. I'm usually pretty good at diagnosing mechanical problems for him but I cant know everything.
Anyway, thanks again!

Re: ea timing chain replacement

Sorry. I thought the 1st version of your question was clear enough.
