Having problems with your 1991 Ford Escort ?
Timing mark how to set timing mark ford escort 1.8
Cam has a "V". Crank has a keyway. Both should be directly on top of the pullys toward the top of the engine. This is an interference engine. Do not force. After replacing the timing belt, turn the crank by ratchet (clockwise) two complete turns to assure. Should feel some resistence but not more than you can easily overcome. If it stops dead and you KNOW it's "just not right" you are 180 out and need to start over.
