1990 honda prelude
I am in the middle of doing a head gasket job on my prelude and am
putting the car back together. I am doing the timing belt now and
cannot manage to get the timing belt tensioner to work right. I either
have to pull hard to get the timing belt on, or it will be very loose.
Is there any trick to getting the timing right and the belt back on?
The book I have talks about places to insert 5mm punches so the cams
will stay at TDC. I can get the cams to TDC, but the valves push it off
of TDC. It will not stay, and once I get the belt on, they have moved
slightly so the timing will not be right!
I am pretty lost as far as this timing belt thing goes.
