Timing mark on flywheel.

I need to know exactly where the TDC mark on the flywheel is.

I am sure where the 10 degree mark is, but it gets fuzzy as you work backwards. Could someone please carefully count backwards amd tell me exactly how many lines back it is.

I am trying to compare it to the front mark to determine if the key is wallowed. Do not want to go through the PITA of removing that crankshaft bolt unless I gotta.

Thanks a bunch fellas.

Oh, and if I do need to remove the center bolt, HOW?
and can it be reused?

Re: Timing mark on flywheel.

Pretty sure the first mark on the flywheel is a letter T, then the next mark is TDC.

As far as the centerbolt, Sarge told me to put a socket on it with a breakerbar and let it smack the frame on the starter. I haven't tried it yet....pull the coil wire before you do!

Re: Timing mark on flywheel.

TDC on the flywheel should be the line right under the "T" stamped on it....just line it up with the straight edge on the timing inspection hole on the bellhousing.

To remove the center bolt,remove the 4 screws holding the pully on then use a 17mm socket and long pull handle to break it free.....and you can reuse it....Manual says to torque it back to like 45lbs,but I have been told the manual is wrong and it should be torqued at 70-75lbs.

Hope this helps....not good at typing what I mean sometimes [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

Re: Timing mark on flywheel.

my flywheel is pretty rusty.

I saw what looks like a T. but is the top of the T facing to the front of the engine, or towards the head ( left as you stand at the front of the car.

And is the TDC line right at the base of the T, so that it almost looks like a T and L together?

Its so bad I can't even make out a T for sure.

Thanks,
Alex

Re: Timing mark on flywheel.

If you are standing against the driver's side fender looking into the hole the T will be upright just like this...there should be a line just below the T.should look like this:

T

If it is hard to make out take a pice of sandpaper and clean the area on the flywheel up abit....

Re: Timing mark on flywheel.

From Driver side fender. T lookes like a T underlined. My flywheel is FUBAR I can hardly make out the marks. Is that what you meant? There is no way to underline here.


Man this little matchbox car is making me SICK!!

Re: Timing mark on flywheel.

Yes it will look like a T with a line right under it.....if you can see the 10* mark turn the flywheel down just alittle and the T should be there.....hope this helps

Re: Timing mark on flywheel.

You don't have to remove the 17mm bolt to remove the crank pulley. It's either 4 or 5 (yes, some 1.3's have 5 bolts securing the pulley to the sprocket) bolts. The 17mm bolt secures the sprocket to the crank.........
