I recently changed my headgaskets on my 92 roadmaster, but during the preocess the underdrive pully must of turned somehow, but I didn't relize it till after I put everthing back together and went to put the distrubter back in, & the rotor did not line up on the mark I made
I know to put back in time you normally put the #1 cylinder at TDC & put the rotor on the distrubter pointing towards the the #1 spark plug wire tower on the distrubter cap. right?
my question to you guys is:
does it matter if the #1 piston is on the exhaust stroke instead of the intake stroke when you go to do this procedure?
If so how can I tell w/o ripping it back apart?
before anybody says "check your timing marks on the balancer w/ a timing light" just to let everybody know I don't have a timing mark indicater thingy on my timing chain cover to check my timing marks on the balancer w/a light
any input on this would really ease my mind. especialy since I have to have this
*@#% car done by mon.
so I can go to work and get the kid to school
