Mondeo Tdci Crank Timing Issue

01 March 2013 - 10:47 AM

new member here. I am rebuilding a 52 plate mondeo estate, 130 tdci engine. it had a bent rod which is now replaced. my problem is the following. ___  set cams as per Haynes manual using 6mm pins fuel pump set using coloured links on chain,  I cannot set crank due to the following  timing pin should be in flywheel at 50 deg, i.e. crank position sensor hole.  manual stated 36 lugs, with one missing for 50 deg position. ????  I have 58 pick up points+ 2 that are missing.  engine was running, but smokey, due to low compression on one cylinder,  before I started on it.  why a different number of pickups and how to set crank to valves, any suggestion  /   advice please.  sorry about the typing in advance
