Re: Timing help!

Yes I'm going out again after dinner w/ a flashlight and tool mirror. It so short and secured in the harness so tight it has to be in front of me.
I have it running for 3-4 seconds rough at a time now. I do have the o2 light lit...it is connected.

Re: Timing help!

Well I got it! Thanks for the help. now to keep it running! I do not know what I did ...perhaps just not looking at the timing light and just tried to fire it. Well it fires rough for a few seconds. Then ZERO fire/spark. If I let it sit a bit, it will do it again then Zero spark. All is grounded, mi...

Re: Timing help!

Everything appears as in your "running Pic" Grey. I do have one 2 plug wire plug in the vicinity of the distributor and coil that I cannot find a mate for. the wires are Black and white...(it appears). With plugs in I can only get something like a backfire once in a great while of cranking...

Re: Timing help!

I have searched it and either I'm not doing it right or something...and I'm pretty good at digging as all I find is fluff or stuff to heavily loaded w/ acronyms or inside knowledge for a novice to help. I have not read your link Grey and not followed the guide you posted on 3 post back...yet. But I ...

Re: Timing help!

I got 145-165psi on all...no bent valves.

So let me get this right. The Cam and crank marks aligned properly will place No 4 at TDC and the rotor is lined up on No4 in the rotor cap? Timing light pick up is to be placed on No4 spark wire as well?

Re: Timing help!

I had to take a break....soooo I went to the keys! :mrgreen: but now I'm in it again. The super nice mech down the road stopped by prior to my vacation and left me some shop pages he has access to from the internet. I Zeroed the cam to it's marks and zeroed the main to it's marks on the block, not t...

Re: Timing help!

epiphany.... I decided that I must not have the cam index properly. Close enough to allow some compression to build, but not correct. I indexed the main to 12 degrees, pulled the rotor to check fire (correct at No.1), then pulled the valve cover and....exhaust is open on No 1. Now that means I'm off...

Re: Timing help!

I almost have them set to clack. That has to be fully closed on a compression stroke. What is normal psi? I hit the cylinders w/ light oil and kept them wet while the head was off. I see again in the am. I double check the gauge on my Yamaha just to be sure it's not wacky. The valve seats were re-cu...

Re: Timing help!

Sorry I thought I posted it is a 2.6L I have been through so many checks for TDC on #1. I thought I had the dist. 180degrees out....but that would have put #3 at TDC and as I mentioned I applied the timing light to all pug wires trying to see the marks. I was thinking that if I was ??? one or two co...

Re: Timing help!

Well i have tried every way I can think of to make sure the timing is correct...and it should be enough to make some noise... I followed the detailed instructions on removal and replacing and feel comfortable about everything. The head was milled and valves worked at a shop. I set the lash. And I ha...

Re: Timing chain issue.

in between listening to the president sound like a fool live on the 6pm news.... I'll try to relay what I have relearned over the past 2 days...if I can stop screaming. I would put a timing light on and see if there is enough adjustment in the distributor to get it right. Working form there will tel...
