Pinto timing vernier cam pulley

Ian Craster

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I started to change the bottom end front oil seals on my pinto, set the crank to TDC but the cam wheel is a vernier type which doesn,t have a timing mark, checked the rotor arm and its pointing to No1.

2 questions would you just mark the cam pulley and replace it as marked.

It may have this pulley fitted because it poss has a uprated cam, does it need this pulley or could I fit a standard one

  • Ian Craster changed the title to Pinto timing vernier cam pulley

If it is an uprated cam then the standard pullley will give the wrong cam timing.

I do not know why but every uprated cam I have come across has its key in a different angular position than the standard ford cam.

So I would mark and replace as marked.
