I have searched multiple forums, including google, and cannot seem to find the info that I need. If somebody could help me out that would be sweet. I need to know what the factory specs are for ignition timing on a 1990 ka24e. For example of what I'm looking for I mean 25btdc or what I should be looking for on a timing light. I need to make sure my timing is right on factory spec so I can get the proper timing set up after I get it back in the car.
15 degrees BTDC on a KA24E. When you go to install your oil pump (if you've taken it out) makes sure its a backwards "D" with the raised part of the tip of it. Then put your distributor in and you're good to go. There was a write-up somewhere on the forums. Probably on here or nico club.
When you take a timing light, its going to hit at 20 degrees ATDC because it did it on my car when I checked with a timing light.
oh man, i hope this helps me out. just swapped a rebuilt motor in my car and it wont start. haha, now i know why. lol. alright, thanx for the info. ill let you guys know what happens tomorrow.
Hope that fixes it, mine won't be going in for a while, I forgot that if I sold all my rims I couldn't move it, now I'm saving up to get my buddies rims, then the engine will go in, but bad thing is I'll have. To wait until the white fluffy stuff on the ground is gone to drive it.
yes it did fix it. just follow it to the T. a backwards D on the oil pump shaft, and slide the distributor in. and have it more towards the advacned side, and she'll purr for you. im building my friends SOHC next, now that he has heard mine, and he was like, dude, that timing is a bitch. i just laughed and agreed. lol.
