I have recently changed the timing belt on my Ranger. The camshaft gear had a diamond and a triangle that lined up, the gear (I believe is an emissions pump) had a triangle that lined up, But the crankshaft gear only had a dot on it and no dots to line up. So I found top-dead-center on a compression stroke and the dot on the crankshaft lined up with a notch. I assume this is correct timing. After puting everything back on the truck started right up. But, it had a very high idle, I drove it down the road and back and put a timing light on it, the timing then kicked down to a low idle but was not the correct idle. The timing light showed the mark on the Harmonic balancer bounce from 30 deg. And up. The truck is supposed to be timed at 10 deg. What could be causing this problem? How can I fix it if the truck doenst have adjustable timing? Thank You
