Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.
So you have the timing belt off the van and your timing marks are all out of place?
ok.. Let me get you some images to help you line up all the timing for you.
Not a problem. All the marks I am giving you is to put the engine on TDC
This next image shows where you want to turn the timing belt adjuster to apply the proper amount of tension on the timing belt.
Once you have the engine at TDC and timing belt marked to the marks on the gears all lined up, put the distributor in with the distributor rotor pointing to number 1 on the cap.
Do you have any more questions on this?
Yes, if you line up the two cam gears and put the crank in the position I showed you in the image, that is TDC. So then I would put the timing belt all on. Before buttoning it up and putting the timing cover back on, drop the distributor back in with the distributor rotor pointing to number 1 on the cap.
If you have any more questions on this, please feel free to ask.

If you look at the one image, there is a dimple on the back timing cover that the ***** *****nes up with. I use touch up paint to mark the cams and crank to make there timing marks more visible to help line things up
