What do the timing marks look like for my truck listed above it has the 2.3 liter engine. The timing belt has been removed and the crank has been turned slightly so I need to get it back in time. Also, not sure if the valves can be damaged if I turn the crank without the timing belt on. Any tips or procedures would help. Thanks.

I answered it myself with a little web browsing. The following picture answered my crank timing issue. Hope it helps someone else.

Here is another picture that may help. There is a second (diamond shaped) mark on the aux pulley that has to be lined up on some models. Maybe this picture will help.

Does the oil pump sprocket need to be in time with the crankshaft and camshaft on a 92 2.3 engine?

No it does not. This drive just runs the oil pump and there is no balance or timing problems.

Dose the oil pump sprocket need to be at a certain mark?
The sprocket has a mark but I cannot find what to line it up to.

Hello,
To better assist you is your model just the Ranger or the Splash? Also, what is your engine size in liter and the eighth digit of your VIN number?
