Timing Marks, 1991 1.9 Ford Escort Station Wagon

How do you align the timing marks on a 1991 1.9 Ford Escort Station Wagon? Where are the timing marks located?

I believe the timing is computer controlled off the cam and crank sensor. You wouldn't be able to adjust it.

Hope this helps,

Bob

unless you are trying to install a timing belt, then it has marks for that

Yes, I am trying to install a timing belt. I need to know where the timing marks are and how to line them up.

if you haven't taken the old belt off and it's still intact, remove the accessory belt(s), plastic timing belt cover and crank balancer/pulley. rotate the crank and watch in the inside of the cam sprocket (it has 6 holes about the size of a quarter), one of the holes has a little triangle shaped pointer. thru the hole there is a notch in the cyl head, line the pointer up with the notch. (you may have to do a little cleaning with brake clean or some other solvent to see the mark on the head) correctly aligned, the little pointer triange thingy will be straight up. now look down at the crank sprocket and it also has some obvious line up marks that also point straight up. install the belt with the slack to the tensioner side and release the tensioner bolt. the tensioner will slide to the right as you look at it. snug the bolt. turn the crank excatly 2 turns and the marks should all line back up, if they don't repeat the belt installation until they do.

FWIW, now is a really good time to replace the water pump and also the cam and crank oil seals.
