ALRIGHT,
UPDATE*********************************************


by myself, and my premature mechanic brain,
i took out the whole intake blah blah
i managed to put on the timing belt, first time changing one (i hope i did it right, it took forever), i bought a brand new one

got all those pulleys back on together,
and, find a battery (relocating it to back)



and TIGHTENED ALL THE SPARK PLUGS, they were all super lose! im so happy i check,
which jaidseye said "they were fine" lol


and i hooked up all the spark plugs and ignition coils


tomorrow, im throwing in some SUPER cheap oil and a oil filter, just to start it, and watch it leak all that oil out probally lol
i gotta find all th disconnected vaccum lines, and connect them




REDROCKET< JAIDSEYE> READ THIS

let me know if i need to look out for anything! im attempting to start this tomorrow,
and you guys are somewhat familiar with das car
alright
goodnight!

EDIT****

question,
does it matter what battery i use?



i have my moms old exploerer sportrac battery because it was kinda dying...

will it work?

did you check the timing before u installed the belt? i think u have to set the engine to TDC, then rotate the camshaft to a certain point BEFORE installing the belt

david. the timing marks have to line up at TDC. before you crank the car make sure you turn the motor over by hand.

if you followed the FSM i gave you then you should be ok. also make sure your distributor is stabbed correctly.

sorry about the plugs being loose. i never checked them but i know redrocket changed all that stuff when he had the car before me

hook the power wire to a key on fuse.

make sure you distributor is timed correctly with the corresponding cylinder. simply installing it doesnt mean its correct

example: if the motor is at #1 TDC then install the distributor with the rotor pointed at the #1 position on the cap

yeah that does make it easier to rotate but not required

just take your time with the car man. i admire your wanting to get the car running asap but if you arent to sure about what you are doing then you might want to throttle back a bit. there are plenty of people on this forum that can help you out.

alright, i agree.

can someone explain these positions?

i kinda remember where the yellow marks are set,

i used the little line on the top of the red cover for the top one, and the bottow one, that little kink, is aimed upwards,

and the lines on the belt, fit perfectly with that

the timing mark you need is on the crank pulley.

the way i always do it is this way:

take the valve cover off, crank the motor over until TDC is reached on the crank pulley. keep cranking it until both the intake and exhaust valves are closed on the #1 cylinder. at that point the TDC mark should be lined up on the crank pulley. install the distributor in the #1 plug wire position.

the number one plug position wire? #1 cylinder position on the distributor cap.. you have two plugs per cylinder but its the same idea. the FSM will show you exactly where it is.

and closed number one cylinder? both valves will be closed at TDC (springs not compressed)

and for setting the belt....
what about that metal tab, that comes out of the timing bbelt cover.. the tab on the lower cover is for checking timing against the crank pulley. there are notches in the crank pulley

as i change plug position
does rotating the ditribitor do anything?


should i take the ditributor off, and try again.

should i do timing belt again (i really do not want too)


and, to reach TDC (top dead center),
cant someone just tell me where the yellow mark chills?


im real sorry for being retarded

the fsm has drawings as well as text that describe perfectly what you need to line up. the cam gear has a dot on a tooth that a corresponds with a line on the timing belt. the second line on the timing belt corresponds with a mark on the crank pulley. there are multiple well drawn pics in the fsm that show this. in the last page of the engine overhaul heading in the engine mechanical section of the fsm, it show a picture of a mark on the distributer and says turn camshaft until no 1 piston is at tdc on compression stroke (both valves closed) align dist. gear mark advanced by one tooth with mark on the dist. shaft.
   if you read the book carefully, and look at the supplied drawings, it should be very simple. you make your motor/distributer look like the one in the pictures. its much easier than you make it out to be. and it wouldnt hurt you to read a book on basic automotive principals so you get a better understanding of things like top dead center, firing order, and electrical operation to name a few.
on a long enough timeline, everyones survival rate drops to zero
