I just bought a rebuilt 92 vg30e engine replacing a blown engine in my 94 max. The old engine and shop manual has the cam timing marks at 11 o-clock for the rear and 1 o-clock for the front (roughly). The new engine timing marks are at 3 o-clock for rear and 1 o-clock for front
Are there differences on different year model engines? Is the 92 engine miss marked? My shop manual is for a 94. Does any one have a 92 manual they could check on this for me.
No, there is no difference on a VG30e engine with reguards to the timing marks from 1985-1994
11 o-clock and 1 o-clock roughly is correct.
A cam that is 3 teeth out "Will" make the valves hit the pistons. I have seen this done at our dealership by a couple of tech's
