I have an 88 acura that has overheated once again. This time it blue the head gasket. I'm reassembling it now, and I come to discover that I may have had the valve timing wrong from last time. I don't have any manuals.

It should line up with the plastic pointer on the timing cover when at TDC. read more...In article: What's the definitive answer about lining up timing marks on the crank pully?
