Having problems with your 1995 Ford Contour ?
How to align cams on a 95 ford contour 2.0 dohc?
\015 Ounce the no.1 cyl is at TDC how do I align cams for timing on a 95 ford contour 2.0 dohc? Theres a yellow dot on the driver side of each cam, are those timing marks or just quality controll marks from the factory. If they are timing marks what position do they need to be in? If they are not timing marks is their timing marks on the cams.\015
I have had good luck with the Haynes manuals available at almost all parts store chains.they are cheap and very easy to understand.plus they are great for future problems
In order to time this engine you've got to align the cams with the respective markings on the new belt, this also pertains to the crankshaft pulley. If there are no markings on the belt, the camshaft markings will have a demarkation on the head two which each cam must be aligned. From here I cannot tell you where thes marks are but they are usually at 12:00 or 3:00 plus when you get near the alignment point the cams will feel almost like they are freewheeling for about 3/4- 1 inch in either direction.The crankshaft has to be at TDC or topdead center. this is easily accomplised with a 12 inch ruler laid across the front of the pulley with the long side facing up. This way you can center the mounting bolt and the timing mark at the same time, assuring you of exact center alignment. That's about all I can offer. Thank you, Dana. P.S. please do not turn the engine over with the key until you are certain that all three marks are dead on target. You may however turn it over by hand using a socket of the correct size going clockwise on the crankshaft.
