timing's off, but that's not the fault of the distributor bolts. and anyone thinking they can mess with the distributor to sort out a skipped cam belt is utterly clueless.

It's a challenge! See http://tegger.com/hondafaq/cranktool/index.html for hints. While you are there, see the part about how to get the new belt on right. It can save you some aggravation.

loading the ignition coil, I hope. If the engine is cranked with the distributor cap off or the plug wires off it can mean curtains for the ignition coil.
