Re: Timing woes and tps'

I would make sure the crank is actually TDC by removing the 1st cylinder's spark plug and putting something in there like a stick or something. Once the stick reaches the highest point your at TDC. Then check the cams to make sure they line up at that point. If all that is correct then the distribu...

Re: Timing woes and tps'

Is it Fixed? Well....not really but kinda. Read below.... With all those issues, it sounds more and more like your timing belt may have jumped a tooth. How old is the belt? I would remove the front cam belt covers and verify that the cams are set correctly. You probably need to adjust belt tension ...

Re: Timing woes and tps'

Update number 2: Now ive really screwed things up. I messed around some more with it and now the car barely idles and does not rev at all...just slowly idles. I can't get it even back to running how it was before all this started. After the car died i started to turn the crank with my wrench and for...

Re: Timing woes and tps'

Okay here's the update. I hand-cranked the crank 2 top dead center mark and check the mark on the camshaft on the intake side through the oil filler to verify that it was set at top dead center on the compression stroke. Everything lined up good. After several attempts I was able to move the distrib...

Re: Timing woes and tps'

I ran lightweight pulleys in my old G35 for like 10 years with no issues. I also ran T3's pulley on my old 4ag motor for a couple years with no issues either. Personally, I don't know anyone who has had any issues running aftermarket pulleys that ran into excessive bearing wear at the crank. Thanks...

Re: Timing woes and tps'

water pump pulley wont line up as well since the ae86 water pump is longer. If you are still running acc you should just buy a solid crank pulley from T3 or NST, that way you don't have to mess around with machining current pulleys etc. I heard aluminum lightweight pulleys are not good for the bala...

Re: Timing woes and tps'

As aukword1 mentioned, the outer pulley ring is bonded to the center section of the crank pulley. I used my old the crank damper for another 2 yrs, and the outer ring slowly moved during that time. But it did not separate. After a couple years I replaced the damper with an alloy pulley. Note if you...

Re: Timing woes and tps'

One of my 4age's had the crank damper timing mark off by more then 20*. After setting the crank at TDC, I filed a new notch in the outer ring so the timing could be re-set correctly. I then put a paint mark across the rubber ban so I could verify that the outer ring had not moved relative to the in...

Re: Timing woes and tps'

Yes, if your cam timing is correct, you will need to carefully extract the dissy without rotating it, move the gear one tooth counter-clockwise and slide her back in again. Then just rotate the dissy to correct the timing in the normal way. Cheers... jondee86 Can think of a couple things, maybe dis...

Timing woes and tps'

Okay I'll try to make this as brief as possible. Once upon a time I was having issues with my TPS so I decided to set the timing to -16 degrees without the car being in normal Diagnostics mode. The reason I did this is because I could not get the car into normal Diagnostics mode because I was gettin...

It's getting ever so close to the finish....join me in this episode as I tackle the tedious and much repetitive task of wetsanding and buffing (dont worry I edited the video). Plus I remove the runs from the paint and install the zenki GTS decals!

Re: Can anyone tell me the horn wires plug wires?

I'm pretty sure the horn is supposed to be grounded to the chasis right near the plug independently. It's been so long since I removed the oem horn setup so my memory is fuzzy on it. It does look like you have the right wires for it though. From what I can tell from the ae86 electric diagram....the...

I looked in the electrical diagram and it says green w/ red wire and white wire....however, i don't have a plug with those wires.

Re: NEED HELP with this strut banging noise VIDEO

OK... drawing is misleading in that case. Looking at the vid of you assembling the strut, I can see that the tophat bushing is not used. Instead you have an elongated nut that forms the bushing. So, I'd guess that you missed the spacer that should have gone under the spherical bearing. Now the nut ...

Re: NEED HELP with this strut banging noise VIDEO

After looking at the vids i agree with jondee86. If the top nut/bushing is on all the way - because you've run out of thread (not good btw) - then it has to be a spacing issue under the bearing. Maybe you forgot the spacer, or its the wrong size... Those are t3 spring top hats, right? Do they clear...

Everytime i hit a bump on the passenger side front suspension it makes a loud banging noise. I took the wheel off and let the suspension hang and when i move the suspension up and down there is some play between the top nut and the large bearing in the camber plate.
