Sure, this is what I do. Find a long piece of rope that will fit into the spark plug hole. Remove #1 spark plug and rotate the engine to position the piston at the bottom of the cylinder. Feed as much rope as possible, stuffing it into the plug hole with a screwdriver if you have to. At this point the rope has become a piston stop. As you're trying to remove the balancer bolt, the piston will press into the rope keeping it from rotating and you'll have to use alot of removal force but it WILL pop loose. If the piston doesn't stop, you don't have enough rope in the plug hole. Don't worry, the valves and piston will be unharmed. I use the "rope trick" alot in my shop for Honda balancer bolts..

How to replace Crank Seal , Honda Accord 95, F22B2 engine


this is covered in the FSM. 95 accord.
did you google this?
http://www.honda-acura.net/forums/accord/137349-1993-f22-crank-cam-balance-shaft-seal-hell.html

are you sure its only the crank seal,????
gravity lies. as does windage effects.
is this an A/T or M/T car, the latter makes the bolt come off easy
(5th gear + brakes) the slush pump tranny NOT.
so if you read the FSM it states." it shows photo of tire off and pulley bolt view and how the body ends just above that bolt, (see it?)
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the accessory drive belts.
  3. If necessary, secure the crankshaft with a flywheel holding tool.
For some engines, a special pulley holder tool is available to secure the pulley while removing and installing the bolt (refer to the illustration)."
4 Remove the crankshaft pulley bolt. This bolt can be difficult to remove. Spray the bolt with penetrating oil and allow it to soak overnight. Book forgets to see CCW direction on bolt (RHT)
the bolt will take about 200fl/lbs of reverse torque to get off.
5 Carefully remove the pulley from the crankshaft. Do not pry it off.
6:
Remove the key from the crankshaft sprocket. Be sure not to lose it.
7 -If necessary, remove the tool holding the crankshaft.

remove seal with seal puller or screw trick ,etc.
do not damage the seal base collar of the housing. DO NOT.

is this your first engine seal work>?
or done many , just need help with one honda.?
if doing all work on a honda, did you ever consider a real FSM?
why not get one, and read it, and all the steps and warnings.
worst case.
if you work engines, you know as you go , you see
Omg, it not the crank it the cam leaking, or just a bad valve cover.
fate happens, distributor seal leak too.

with all FWD, doing a crank seal can be easy or hard.
no access panels in finder
or on some cars, 7ton pressed on pulley, (Dodge neons/ yuk)

bolt spec:
1994-95 Accord and Prelude-181 ft. lbs. (245 Nm)

if the 90,000 mile timing belt is ignored, you will bend the head valves over, or worse... so...... all this , is a consideration.

1995 accord timing belt schedule


If the timing belt has been replaced recently, a mechanic can inspect it taking the cover off, and tell you, that won't cost big money.

If it has been replaced 50K miles ago it wont be possible to know.

If the car has 114K miles, I suggest taking it to a mechanic and replacing the timing belt.

    How do you set the timming on a 95 honda accord


    1990–95 4-Cylinder Accord and 1992–95 Prelude
    1. .
    2. Fig. 10: On all engines except VTEC, the belt adjuster arm must be locked in place using one of the lower cover mounting bolts 86803136.gif
      NOTE: There are two belts in this system; the one running to the camshaft pulley is the timing belt. The other, shorter one drives the balance shaft and is referred to as the balancer belt or timing balancer belt. Use a piece of chalk or a marker to place an identifying arrow on the belts. The arrow can identify the direction of rotation or the outer edge of the belts. The belts must be reinstalled so it moves in the same direction. Protect the belts from oil, coolant, etc. It's an even better idea to replace the belts at this point.
    3. Loosen the timing belt adjustment nut. Push on the tensioner to relieve tension from the balancer belt, then tighten the nut. Remove the balancer belt.
    4. On all models except Prelude with VTEC, loosen the lockbolt installed earlier and the adjusting nut. Push on the tensioner to release the timing belt, then tighten the nut. Carefully remove the timing belt. On Prelude VTEC models, remove the timing belt from the pulleys, then remove the bolts securing the auto-tensioner. Remove the auto-tensioner from the engine. To install:
    5. Check the position of the timing marks. The timing pointer must be perfectly aligned with the TDC (white mark) on the flywheel or flex-plate; the camshaft pulley must be aligned so that the word UP is at the top of the pulley and the marks on the edge of the pulley are aligned with the surfaces of the head. Additionally, the face of the front timing balancer pulley has a mark which must be aligned with the notch on the oil pump body. This pulley is the one to the left crank when viewed from the pulley end.
    6. Fit the timing belt over the pulleys and tensioner. On DOHC engines without VTEC, remove the 5mm pin punches from behind the cam pulleys.
    7. Except Prelude VTEC models:
      1. Temporarily install the crank pulley and bolt.
      2. Loosen the tensioner adjusting nut 1 turn, then tighten it. Rotate the crankshaft counterclockwise until the camshaft pulley has moved 3 teeth to create tension on the belt. Loosen the nut again, then tighten it to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm). NOTE: Always rotate the crankshaft counterclockwise when viewed from the pulley end. Rotating it clockwise will cause improper adjustment and possible damage.
      3. Tighten the lockbolt installed earlier to lock the timing belt adjuster arm. Remove the crank pulley.
    8. On Prelude VTEC models:
      1. Hold the auto-tensioner with the maintenance bolt facing up. Loosen and remove the bolt. NOTE: Handle the tensioner carefully so the oil inside does not spill or leak. Replenish with clean engine oil if any does leak. Total capacity is 1⁄4 fl. oz. (8 ml).
      2. Clamp the mounting flange of the tensioner in a vise using a cloth or blocks of wood to protect it. Insert a flat blade screwdriver into the maintenance hole. Place the stopper (tool number 14540-P13-003) or an equivalent clamp on the tensioner, then turn the screwdriver clockwise to compress the bottom. Be careful not to damage the threads or the gasket contact surface.
      3. Install the maintenance bolt on the tensioner with a new gasket. Tighten to 6 ft. lbs. (8 Nm).
      4. Make sure no oil is leaking from around the maintenance bolt, then install the tensioner on the engine. Make sure the stopper stays in place and tighten the bolts to 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm).
      5. Remove the stopper. Fig. 11: On VTEC engines, the tensioner must be compressed before installing it on the engine 86803137.gif
        Fig. 12: Remove the stopper after installing the tensioner on the engine 86803138.gif

    9. Make sure all timing marks are positioned correctly (as described earlier).
    10. Align the rear timing balancer pulley (to the right of the crank pulley) using a 6x100mm bolt or rod. Mark the bolt or rod at a point 2.913 in. (74mm) from the end. Remove the bolt from the maintenance hole on the side of the block; insert the rod into the hole. Align the 74mm mark with the face of the hole. This pin will hold the shaft in place during installation.
    11. Loosen the tensioner adjusting nut and verify that the timing balancer belt adjuster moves freely. Fig. 13: The balancer shaft must be held in position during timing belt installation 86803139.gif

    12. Fit the balancer belt over the pulleys. Remove the bolt or rod from the maintenance hole.
    13. Temporarily install the crank pulley. Rotate the engine one turn counterclockwise, then tighten the tensioner adjusting nut to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm). Double check the positions of the timing marks and make sure they still line up. If not remove the belts and repeat the procedures. NOTE: Both belt adjusters are spring-loaded to properly tension the belts. Do not apply any additional pressure to the pulleys or tensioners while performing the adjustment.
    14. Remove the crank pulley. Remove the lockbolt installed earlier on the timing belt adjuster arm. Install the maintenance bolt with a new washer. Tighten it to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm).
    15. Install the lower cover, making certain the rubber seals are in place and correctly located. Tighten the retaining bolts to 9 ft. lbs. (12 Nm).
    16. If applicable, raise the lower beam and engine into place. Install the rear bolts for the lower beam. Tighten them to 28 ft. lbs. (39 Nm) on 1990–91 Accords, 37 ft. lbs. (50 Nm) on 1992–95 Accords and 43 ft. lbs. (60 Nm) on 1992–95 Preludes.
    17. Install the key on the crankshaft and install the crankshaft pulley. Apply oil to the bolt threads and tighten it to the following:
      • 1990 Accord: 166 ft. lbs. (230 Nm)
      • 1991–93 Accord: 159 ft. lbs. (220 Nm)
      • 1992–93 Prelude: 159 ft. lbs. (220 Nm)
      • 1994–95 Accord and Prelude: 181 ft. lbs. (245 Nm)
    18. Install the dipstick tube and dipstick.
    19. Install the side engine mount (refer to engine removal and installation for procedures). Remove the jack from under the engine.
    20. Install the upper belt cover.
    21. Install the side engine mount support bracket if it was removed.
    22. Install the valve cover.
    23. Install the compressor and/or alternator drive belt; adjust the tension.
    24. Route the wiring harness over the valve cover and connect the wiring to the alternator.
    25. Install the power steering pump and install the belt.
    26. Reinstall the cruise control actuator. Connect the vacuum hose and the electrical connector.
    27. Double check all installation items, paying particular attention to loose hoses or hanging wires, untightened nuts, poor routing of hoses and wires (too tight or rubbing) and tools left in the engine area.
    28. Refill the engine coolant.
    29. Install the splash shield under the engine.
    30. Connect the negative battery cable.
    31. Start the engine, allowing it to idle. Check for any signs of leakage or any sound of the belts rubbing or binding.

    How do I remove the bolt on the pulley to replace timing belt on a 95 honda accord


    This is a repair best left to the experts. Severe engine damage will occur if the repair is done incorrectly. The Chilton's manual is fine for someone who has a good baseline of knowledge to begin with. But if you do not know what you are doing, it does not provide enough information. Remember this is an INTERFERENCE engine. Do this repair incorrectly, and when you attempt to start the engine, you will more likely than not, cause internal engine damage. If it were a non-interference engine, I would say, give it a try and if you make a mistake, the engine would just not start, but no damage will be done. Not the case with this engine. Your decision.

    there is a ten millimeter bolt holding it in remove this then depending if you have a factory or afterrmarket replacement you may have to remove the three tourqe scews fom sensor and replace just the electrical portion of the swith and reuse the shaft. Be sure to lubricate the shafts oring before reinstalling and double check to makesure the sensor is seated before installing the ten millimeter bolt. this can some times be tricky because the gear on the sensor doesnt mesh eith the gear in the diff just rotate the sensor side to side if this happens until it bottoms out

    Unfortunately, u must remove the timing belt. This is why it is recommended to change the water pump when the timing belt is changed.
    Here's the procedure : Disconnect neg. battery cable, remove splash shield at wheel well, (after removing wheel to help gain access, turn the engine to align timing marks and set #1 cylinder at top dead center on the COMPRESSION stroke. Once this is done, u can NOT disturb engine or u will have a fun time trying to figure out how the heck to set the timing. Drain anitfreeze, remove timing belt, remove water pump bolts (be aware that bolts may be different lengths, don't mix them up, remove water pump and O ring.
    Put it back together: install new O ring and water pump, be careful Oring doesn't slip or move out of position, tighten to 9 ft lbs, install timing belt, refill antifreeze, reconnect battery cable, start car, check for leaks, bleed cooling system, replace splash shield.
