Newby/First Posting - "95 316i B16 cam position at TDC - pic needed
this is my first time posting on this forum, yep l'm a newby here.
My kids 1995 (Aug) E36 316i ( SOHC B16 )Compact had engine problems only firing on two cylinders 1 + 2 with 3 + 4 just moving up and down with no measurable compression - in the back two - l pulled the head and found a 20 mm ( 3/4" ) piece of the head gasket ( metal strip part ) between 3 and 4 was missing and black melted on the edges... Hmmm that kinda works for an reason.
OK ... the problem is, in my haste to locate the problem, l pulled the head with out lining up the timing marks, l now have 1 and 4 at TDC in the block and want to relocate the cam to its correct position.... ( l did follow the video on youtube about pulling the head - one important part missing in that video - stuff a rag down the timing chain gap to stop it falling in and moving a tooth when you pull it back out !!!!! important fact - l thought !!
Can anyone post a pic of the relationship of TDC #1 and the cam position on # 1.
I believe that the lobes should be positioned so that both valves are closed ... is that correct ??
Thank you in advance for any assistance.
