does it crank but not fire or is it just dead?
|As jsinton mentioned, the camshaft gear is double the size of the crank gear because it turns at 1/2 the speed of the crank, therefore it takes 2 turns of the crank to make a complete turn of the cam gear (known as cam timing). You probably have to turn the crank over once as it is right now, Then take off the belt and turn the cam gear 1/2 a turn to realign the marks, & then put the belt back on, that should make it right.|
Wait! OOPs! sorry,,, Here's something a bit easier to do.
1) Line up the crank (BELT PULLEY) timing mark to Top Dead Center (TDC) on the engine itself, Then check to see if the valves for Cylinder # 1 are being held open, or closed? If closed your cam is in the right position for firing Cyl. #1 then set your distributor rotor to Cyl. #1 and you're done!
2) Or, If either of the valves are being held open, it means your cam is set to fire on a different Cylinder,,, Then just turn the crank pulley one more turn, and check it again, the cam shaft will have moved 1/2 a turn, & your valves should be closed now, go back to step 1) and finish it up.
