Timing belt and ignition timing questions
Posted 26 April 2012 - 10:36 AM
Anyways I can't get car to start correctly, it will start and sound like garbage with full pedal but it barely breathes and dies with pedal release....I also am hearing a "clicking" from fuel pump and somewhere in ecu or behind it? (Fuel pump relay I think)
Going to fiddle with dizzy again, any help is MUCH appreciated!

check the crank.
and if thats looking good,,,,, then you need to check your timming with a timing light (to show if you distributer is on)
prolly off if you saying it has a hard start, and you did the HGs.

Do I need to save the timing some how?

All this that your saying is telling me that your timming is off! Do you have a timming light to check it?
If you loosen the Distributer, at idel and turn it left and right, it'll change the timming by hand. And by doing so you can hear the idel change, advancing and retarding the timming. I'm damn good with out a timming light, I can hear the engine and tell when it's on. And 99.9% of the time it's dead on.
The black plastic rubber thing near where the motor butts up to the tranny on the right passedure side is where you out a timming light one and it'll tell you the degree it's running at.
Let me know if that works

the am dots point at the hard edges of the valve covers whn at o deg. rotor points at the brake MC. #1 on the cap is to the right of the rear screw/clip.
setting the disty gear can feel vague. you want to 'feel' for an 'in between' tooth to insert to.
the test connectors remain unplugged, unless you are setting the static timing with a light, and to cycle the fuel pump circuit.
there is a write up about the timing belts that has step by step pics if the video didn't explain it well enough.
you may be a tooth off on the timing belt.

Miles, those videos are more then helpful and easy to follow! The only reason I decided to do the job myself was because of your step by step videos! Thanks man!!! SERIOUSLY!

The green connector is for stopping the timing from advancing so it can be set makesure you mark the 20* mark on the flywheel with some white out to make it more visible.
