  1. Hi Fergi, Yes, even tho my car is a 92 Lexus ES300, I could only find the FSM for a 93...but it is a 3vz-fe motor. I was trying to think through the crankshaft/camshaft relationship before...see discussion with George Jetson. If I am thinking right...one 360 revolution of the crankshaft should always put the #1 piston at TDC - without the TB on, you don't need to think about the camshaft position. The problem is getting the camshaft right before putting the TB on...which one does by aligning the mark of the RH cam pulley (distributor camshaft) with the timing cover mark. This I assume is

  3. its a bit hard looking at the timing marks etc in pictures but if the rotor is not quite pointing to no 1 cyl could your belt be one notch out. fergi Hi, As per the pictures above, the timing marks on the cams are right on at TDC after manually turning the crankshaft 2 revs. Only the marks on the belt have shifted which were all lined up on the pulley alignment marks before I turned the crank,... shouldn't matter as long as the timing marks on the cam and crank pulleys are aligned right? Fergi, the rotor must be right since I have the knock pin on the RH cam pulley aligned properly
  4. Do you have the FSM? http://www.turboninjas.com/camry/

  7. Not sure if you can tell from the diagram...it's a poor scan...but give this a look... http://www.lexuspartsnow.com/diagrams/large/284450/front-door-lock-handle-mbv412a.png
  8. Hi again, I will try turning over by hand 2x to see it everything still lines up tomorrow. Here are pics of my cams,the crank timing gear, crank pulley and distributor. I thought the rotor was on #1, but it's just before it as it turns CCW. All the lines on the TB line up properly to all the alignment marks.
  9. If you are looking for the magnetic clutch relay, it is in Relay Block 5 located under the hood, driver's side, closest to the strut mount.
  10. sometimes if you set the timing to tdc you may have it set on exhaust stroke and not compression stroke, that is you could be 180 degrees out with your timing, can you put a timing light on it and try cranking the motor over when its set to tdc your your tappits on no 1 pot should be under no pressure on both exhaust and intake valves, that is the tappits should be loose' also double check your plug leads are correct, check each one properly with the correct firing order. cheers fergi Thanks for the reply fergi. It would be out 180 if the camshaft and the crankshaft were out 180. Bu

  12. Hi, I'm having problems starting the engine replacing the timing belt. It turns over but I'm not sure it's firing right. When I was installing the new belt, I set the crankshaft pulley to the TDC mark 0. Then I worked my way with the belt to the LH cam pulley (front)made sure it was taut with the crankshaft timing gear, and cable tied it to the pulley to keep it from slipping. Did the same with the RH cam pulley and made sure the belt was taut between the two cam pulleys. I made sure the cam pulley timing marks were aligned with the rear timing cover marks. Installed the tensioner. Did I
  13. OK, I tried the engine bumping trick. I broke the 3/8 breaker bar drive tab doing this. Tried a half inch breaker bar and socket. It just holds the crankshaft... won't loosen the bolt. Charged battery...got them all off.
  14. Hello, I'm trying to replace the water pump in my 92 Lexus ES300. I'm down to removing the 2 cam pulleys(spoked) and the crankshaft pulley(flat with two mounting holes for the puller). For the crankshaft pulley, I put the wheel back on and left the car in 1st gear and used a breaker bar on it. But there's still too much give in the CV joint. I didn't want to break anything. I read elsewhere here about the starter-bump trick. I'm gonna try that tomorrow...but sounds dangerous to me...tho I'm desperate. Someone also said the you can get the waterpump off without taking the cam pulleys off
  15. Hi Everyone, With our -49C windchill in SK, I need to put in a Block Heater for my kid's Es300. Does anyone know where the frost plug is located? I have the 93 FSM but can't find it. I might consider putting in a Temro tank-type circulation heater...has anyone put one of these in? Thanx
