    I would go get a repair manual at the parts house and read it for the answers.

    WHY WAIST OUR TIME WITH A ANSWER THAT IS NOT A ANSWER. YOU WANT TO SELL YOUR BOOKS FINE BUT UNLESS YOU HAVE REAL INFO ON WHAT WIRE I NEED TO GND OR CONNECT THEN PLEASE DONT WAIST MY TIME!!!

    Giving step by step instructions on here is not the best way to go when a $25 repair manual will have pics that help and the specs you need. I don't sell the manuals you dolt. When you have an older vehicle it is better to have the manual because surely you will come across other problems during this repair attempt and in the future or you can go online in the chat rooms where they will tell you the same thing or have repair manual sections they can send you. For $25 it is cheap to get the knowledge you want. Or you can reach out and blame others for your problems.

    Ok, you have answered your own question. If you are doing this job for a friend or in a shop then before you start you should have all your ducks in a row. The timing at the dist does not change and if you got the timing marks right when you put back together then should still be the same. If you tore into it, and I am not saying you did, without knowing where the timing marks should be when resetting the new belt then that was not the right way to go about it. Spending $25 do do the job right, even if you pass it on to the friend/customer, is not stupid, it is smart. All procedures for belt replacement and resetting the timing would be in that $25 manual and would remove any guesswork. That would have been money well spent before tearing down something you don't know completely about. By the way it is spelled "waste" not waist-like where your belt is.

    I dont want step by step instructions. I know that problems can pop up and have no problem taking care of any thing that does. I just finished replacing the timeing belt and just need to set the engine timeing. This is not my car or a car that I plan on doing more repair's. Spending $25.00 on a book for some ones elses car or for a 1 time deal is just stupid. I was hopeing I could get the info for dissabling the electronic dist control so I can set the basic timeing. I dont need a book if a kind person could reply with the info I need not waist my time with. And just so you know I DONT BLAME MY PROBLEMS ON OTHER PEOPLE OR WAIST TIME NOT HELPING SOME ONE. Why dont you spend more time repairing what ever makes you the way you are.
