distributor timing


Asked by Jul 13, 2011 at 10:50 AM about the 1994 Geo Tracker 2 Dr LSi 4WD Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

well i blew the timing belt, bent some valves, so i tore down the top end and sent it out to be machined. when i got it back i started to put it together and thats when i noticed the housing for the distributor was cracked, got a new one on ebay, but now im stuck trying to get the timing correct on the distributor, the crankshaft and camshaft timing is correct, any help would be awesome, its a 94 lsi 1.6l 8vavle.

there should be markers, like small triangles pointing everything out...


There is marks crank and cam but timing is off of #4 tdc not #1 it's a suzuki thing. distributor is lined up to # 4 with the marks timing cover off looking at belt with pulley on lines up to #1.
