720 2.4 timing


Recommended Posts

Hey I'm putting the distributor back in a 2.4z  and Ive got most of it done just wanted to check the clocking  and find out what position or terminal it should be pointing at?

Ive got the cam and crank timed just wanting the distributor position. can anyone help?

right now I've got it at 1 intake.

Set engine accurately to TDC on the number one cylinder compression stroke and look here...




Note the tip of the oil pump/distributor drive spindle has a small and large side half moon. Distributor can only go in one way.


If you do not have this orientation you will have to remover the oil pump and reposition the spindle. Try aligning the dots on the pump and the spindle first.

The distributor rotor should be pointing at 9 o'clock intake one and 4 o'clock exhaust  one. As viewed from the driver's fender
