You line up the crankshaft at TDC byaligning the marks on the flywheel/flex plate with the pointer on the bellhousing. On the radiator side of the engine block where it bolts to the trans mission about half way up there is a rubber plug witch you can remove to gane access to the pointer on the trans bellhousing to line up the timing marks

Tbc dash light meaning for honda

I don't know of a TBC light for Honda but there is a TDC... If that's what you meant to type. Its the "Top Dead Center" sensor

The TDC (top dead center) positioning sensor is another name for your crankshaft position sensor. This sensor measures the position of your crankshaft and helps with the proper firing of your spark plugs when you start your engine. The TDC sensor on the '97 Honda Accord is located on the underside of the engine block. Replacement TDC sensors can be purchased at your Honda dealership. This is not a difficult repair and can be done in about 15 minutes.

Working on Honda Prelude 1992 with a 2.2 motor can't get bolt off crankshaft pulley wanting to know if it is left or right handed threads

It is standard thread (right handed) and a little more information if you need it: there is a hole on the rear of the block on the drivers side located just behind the rear balance shaft so you can lock your engine #1 cylinder @ TDC with a 6mmX100mm bolt or screwdriver. there is a hole machined into the balance shaft that holds everything still so you can get done....I would also recommend the use of an impact....IT IS TIGHT!!!

I got the code p1361 on my HONDA, PRELUDE, 2000. Its mean TDC intermittent connection.... On h22a4 like me... the TDC and CKP connect in 1 connector. I check the connector restistance.... perfect... i...

heres adiagram to check resistance of the sensor, it should be1200-1300 ohms, but take note the sensor could read good at this time this problem is intermitent and the sensor may be bad, check for continuty at the computer connector , if all wires are good then i would replace the crankshaft sensor/top dead sensor (CKP/TDC).next check conntinuty between sensor terminals and ground check all four prongs on sensor if theres continuity on any one replace sensor, next key off and sensor connected . remove the pcm 31 pin connector (C) here a diagram of it. at the pcm connector measure resistance between terminals C2 and C12 it should be 1200-3200 ohms, then check between C3 and C13, again 1200-3200ohms if the ohms are off then check wires that fail omh test is with connector again test connector c2 (blue /white wire) to ground and C3 to ground if continuity exists then repair wire that fails between connector and sensor, if all tests are good then try a good pcm. i dont think its pcm, i think if its not a wire then replace sensor , but good luck and i hope this helps.johnjohn2_18.gifjohnjohn2_19.gif

How do you find tdc for a 1991 honda prelude 2.1

remove the #1 spark plug. rotate the engine in the direction it rotates when operating. use a socket and ratchet on the crankshaft bolt. while cranking, place your finger over the spark plug hole. when you feel pressure building. insert a wooden dowel into the hole and contact the piston. while holding the dowel against the piston, continue cranking while observing the dowel. when the piston reaches the top, the dowel will stop and begin reversing direction. when it starts reversing direction, stop and crank it back to the top. go slowly when performing all steps. obviously this procedure works best with 2 people.

the #1 plug should be the first one at the front of the engine. if you remove all plugs it will be easier to turn.

If it is a manual transmission, you may have a clutch/pressure plate going bad, or the synchronizers in the trans are going bad. If it is an auto, you have something going wrong inside the trans, and will need to be rebuilt or replaced.

Need a picture or diagram of top dead center/86' honda prelude 2.

From what I see in my manual,

1.There is a Timing Pointer on the back of the engine. There is a White mark on the flywheel. The white mark must line up with the timing pointer, for Number 1 piston to be at Top Dead Center.

2.Facing the engine, looking at the camshaft sprocket. The sprocket has spokes. On one of those spokes is the word, "UP" in raised letters, or there is a small Dot. As you can see here, the spoke with the word UP goes -> Up.
(Same thing of course if it is a Dot, instead of UP)

On the back of the camshaft gear, (Sprocket), are marks. On the edges of the camshaft gear. These line up with the top edge of the cylinder head. The surface of the cylinder head, where the valve cover bolts down to.

I'm sorry, at present I do not have a website, that I could link you to for a diagram, or photo.
