Engine Mechanical problem
1985 Ford Ranger 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 300000 miles
Timing belt broke and I changed it. Now it won't start.
What is the correct procedure to put it back in time.
I thought you bring #1 piston to tdc on compression stroke and distributor rotor should be pointing to #1 Plug wire on Distributor cap.
The timing gears have marks on them. The gear on the Head has a marker on it and I pointed it to a marker mounted on head.
The other gear next to crank has a mark on it also but I can't find any marker to align it with.
Now I can't get it to start.
Am I doing something wrong?
have the same problem?
