Gen 1 timing set after valve job.
« on: October 12, 2017, 05:49:48 PM »
Hello out there I have a 90 Gen. 1 montero 3.0 12 valve. I had a valve job done along with a valve stem seals I've been going through  book Page after page trying to figure out on where to set each Cam too So that I would be in the right orientation to install the timing belt. Any help would be awesome.

Ok so I have done the timing belt and the engine is back in the truck and now the truck won't fire. Distributor is set ( I double checked) I smell fuel and I have spark. Can anyone help with this.

I had PA_JERO over trying to get it running and still no luck. Do you have a picture of the top of the cap with the wires? Also any tips on the install of the distributor?
