Nissan timing marks, 96 P/U with KA24E

My Haynes manual shows a tab with 5 degree increments for the 4 cylinder, and a small pointy tab with marks on the harmonic balancer for the 6 cylinder. I can't find either on my truck.

What I can find is a small tab that sticks out down on the block. If you stand facing the radiator you have to look on the passenger side of the engine. It also looks like there are some marks on my balancer. Can anyone point me in the right direction here? The only thing I do know is 10 degrees BTDC.

Its hard to remember that far back. The sad thing is I have an my old FSM at my inlaws. I don't think timing is adjustable on the 96.

He's what i can remember. Looking at the crank pulley from the front with the timing marks facing up. There should be 4-5 marks. Right to left they are 5-0-5-10. Shoot the light at the timing pin and it should line up with 10. But like I said and can't really remember.

Really you'd do yourself a favor by getting an FSM. They are great. Nothing comes close to the data and information they contain. You might try an alldata subscription they decent wiring diagrams,etc.

There should be a zero mark on the "tab" - a line in the middle or something.

The marks on the balancer should be the other marks you're looking for. Here's what you do when setting the timing on a vehicle - use a piece of chalk to highlight the marks on the timing tab and mark(s) on the harmonic balancer pulley. Then, while using the timing light, those marks show up NICE and clear.

Hopefully this was clear - if not - ask again and someone else can re-explain my explanation. I can show someone how - not necessarily explain it. But basically with the chalk in the proper spots, you can see where the timing marks line up.

In the case of the nissan there are 4 timing marks on the balancer and only a timing pin on the block. The trick is knowing the proper protocol for setting timing on a nissan. Its something like

check timing

if incorrect unplug the TPS
check and adjust to correct setting

plug in TPS

Restart vehicle the recheck

Something along those lines. The FSM download will save a lot of headache

Thanks for the download and the info. We found the timing marks but the Haynes Manual is not very comprehensive. I have had the vehicle for 10 years and never adjusted the timing myself, for some reason the truck was always in the shop right around tune up time and I just paid to have it done. I just got done replacing a bunch of parts and thanks to the advice of you guys the truck runs great but the mileage was horrible. Hopefully a tune up will fix that.
