Engine Performance problem
1997 Ford Ranger 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 130000 miles
I changed my timing belt very recently, I have very good mechanical knowledge, I just need the experience of an expert.
With all the timing marks in place I get a constant " ticking" when I run the engine.
I assume my timing belt is off by a notch in one direction or the other;
Is there any way to know which direction to adjust the belt?
Is the oil pump pulley orientation as critical as the crankshaft and camshaft orientation?
I assume I need to adjust the camshaft pulley only a single timing belt notch clockwise or counterclockwise, and this is where I need an experts advise?
