Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer
Nearly every web site I've looked at contain very different instructions on how and or where the timing marks should be, please help and thank you for your time.
Posted by Anonymous on
The marks on the cam shafts are directly vertical at the top in line with a mark in the back of the housing the balance shaft timing mark is at 9 oclock position
the crank shaft timing mark is at 10 oclock position ( lining up with a pointer) and the oil pump mark is also at the 10 oc;ock position lining up with a pointer
( to check the position of the oil pump sprocket remove a plug -shown in the book -and insert .30dia pointed screw driver (5/16 philips ) to at least 2.4 "
if it cannot be inserted to this depth move the oil pump sprocket until it can)
the process of assembly is -:
install the timing belt to the sprockets and pulleys in the following order , retaining the belt to the camshaft sprockets by the use of suitable binding clips ( clothes pegs etc)
oil pump sprocket
exhaust camshaft sprocket
intake camshaft sprocket
to help install the belt the auto tensioner on the lh side should be removed
all of this information will be included in a workshop manual covering lancer engines for the years listed and will also include all tensions for the bolts --If you do not have the workshop manual then it is STRONGLY recommended that you obtain one
information from autodata belt installation manual lancer 2.0 l
