Does this timing look correct?

I tried to get the best pictures I could. But does this look correct or is it off just slightly. The car runs a hair lumpy at idle but I feel like itís more of a vacuum leak than anything else. Iíve gone through the fuel system and that is fine. The ignition is also working well. So itís either just off timing or sucking in air somewhere. Or the tune is crap.

You need to pull the cover and check the actual timing gear mark, also if the car has balanace shafts the belt could be loose or that could be off a tooth.

Edit - gears look on point, harmonic balancer looks a bit off, but that could be from the angle the picture was taken.

Irritating thing is that I had the timing cover off before this and wasnít smart enough to check it before I reassembled the whole thing.

Your cam gears are lined up so the question is whether the crank is sitting at TDC. If you draw a line from the center of the harmonic balancer (in the middle of where your wrench head is) to the '0' tick on the timing cover, it looks like it passes right through the notch on the edge of the balancer wheel. To me that indicates that your timing is good. If it's vibrating a lot you could have your rear balance shaft out by 180*. If it's just idling poorly check your ignition timing and fuel/vacuum/etc.

Here is another quick question. Would the factory lower timing cover be black? All the oem replacements I see are silver. Mine is black and seems to be warped as it rubs bad on the ac tensioner.

Yeah, just the OEM VR4 one is black, but the silver works just finished new as long as it's for a 6 bolt engine.

I have a brand new in box black cover I will sell you. I will price match whatever you can find one for.

BTW, the Eclipse/Talon/Laser engine versions used the silver covers.

Cheapest Iíve seen a silver cover for was $108. Color doesnít matter much to me. Iím going to have to rebuild my throttle body too so, Iím likely going to have to make a bigger parts order.

Just wanted to verify this timing was correct, and I found my issue. Was not related to timing.
