Thanks Anthony, Thanks for the firing order info. However on the Timing Set I must ask...Are you sure?
We have had the timing set, got it running, however quite rough. Rough enough to throw the timing belt. Our Haynes Manual says No 1 and so soes Autozone. Please refer to link.
What I find interesting at the autozone site is the difference it states in the 86-92 series 2.3L engines (note between #3 & 4 in italics - With the timing marks aligned, the engine is positioned on the TDC of the No. 4 cylinder's compression stroke.
) and the 93-96 series 2.3L engines (#8 Rotate the crankshaft to set the engine at TDC/compression for the No. 1 cylinder. The arrow mark on camshaft sprocket aligns with mark on the rear timing cover.). Ours is the '93 2.3L, and according to both references, should be set at one.
What is the difference between the two years that would make both of these references be off? We did set it on one previously, and we are ready to try four, but as you can imagine, we really don't want to have to get back in here to fix another timing belt and just want to be 100% sure we are setting it right, the ONE time. You know what I mean?
All the info and time you have is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
