Massive help needed !!!

Could someone please post a pic of the distributor rotor in the #1 TDC position for a 2.5...
The PO replaced the engine, and the chain was so badly stretched that nothing lined up, wtf...f-me.
Thanks in advance !!!!

you just need to make a mark down the side of the distributor where the #1 spark plug terminal would be. Turn the crankshaft clockwise 360 degrees until the tic mark on the pulley aligns with the 0 on the timing plate. After you have aligned the pulley look at the rotor it should be pointing at the mark you made on the distributor if not its on the exhaust stroke in that case turn it again360 degrees and then you will be at tdc #1 piston. What exactly do you want a pic of and I'll see what I can do.

Thanks, I did that...the issue is that the width of the rotor swept area is almost 3 cam teeth. I used a Haynes manual, which is about as useless as perfume on a pig. Add to the idiotic way that the factory says to verify the marks, which is vague at best....
I got her running, but she seems a little anemic, I have a Chilton manual coming this week, maybe that will shed better light on it !

So did you replace the chain and gears? Don't go by the picture in the Haynes manual showing the pins to count.....its off. Go by the number the book calls for in the narrative.

I did go by the schematic in the Haynes manual, she seems to be running much better. I'm gonna run a tank through and see how the mileage calculates out. Thanks for the assist
