Unhappy Timing and timing belt?

I JUST REPLACED THE TIMING BELT IN MY 93 RANGER WITH THE 2.3 ENGINE, WHAT A JOB, NOW! IT STARTS AND RUNS AND SOUNDS FINE AT IDEL AND SEEMS TO RUN LIKE IT DID BEFORE THE BELT BROKE (BUT) I CAN HEAR THE VALVES CHATTER, MOSTLY IN 3rd AND 4th GEAR IS WHEN I HEAR IT MOST WHILE GIVING IT THE GAS. I CHECKED THE TIMING MARKS ON THE CRANK AND CAM SPROKETS A NUMBER OF TIMES BEFORE PUTTING EVERYTHING BACK TOGETHER. WHERE DID I GO WRONG? I'M NOT SURE HOW TO CHECK THE TIMING ON THESE NON -DISTRIBUTORED ENGINES.

Default Timing Belt Replacement on 91 Ranger

What do I need to remove on the crankshaft end to get the timing belt off and the new one on. This is on a 1991 Ranger with a 4 cylinder engine.
Thanks

Try loosening your tensioner on your timing belt and turn your crank counter clockwise a notch on your belt. I had to do that on mine a couple of times to get it right. I have a 1991 Ranger with the 2.3 engine. I backed it off a notch on the belt, re-tightened the tensioner, then test drove it. You may have to do this a couple of times to get it right. If it doesn't do better that way, you may have to turn yours clockwise. Mine had no power going up hills. When I backed it off a notch at a time, I got it where it needed to be.
I hope this helps.

It kinda sounds like your timing is too advanced and you are getting spark ping from having the timing too advanced. It usually sounds like shaking a can of spray paint with a stirring marble in it.

You should check the timing to see if it is correct, but as I check your post it says your 93 is non-distributed...? I can search Napa online to find a distributor cap for a 93 Ranger...?

This engine I believe uses a spout to help the engine's computer adjust the timing. This needs to be removed to check the timing. It's a computer chipish deal that needs to be removed so the timing can be chacked without computer adjustment.

Default Timing and timing

They are very similar to each other. Both are 6 channels, belt driven, have a separate gyro, speed controller, have upgrade parts available. Both are for experienced flyers only. These are not for beginners.
