Question about 1989 Honda CRX
I totaly messed up and took the head off without putting the #1 piston at TDC. I simply shut the car off and went right to work taking off the head without marking anything! I remember piston positions when I took the head off. #1 piston looked liked it had just fired and on its way back down about a 1/4 inch down from top, #2 piston was down, #3 was down and #4 was up. I need to know how to find the spot where the cam was positioned and the crank when I started this project. Can you please help? I put #1 piston at TDC, Lined up the marks on the camshaft pulley, but my rotor is positioned between #1 and #3 on the cap?
Turn crank so that timing mark on front pulley is at 0 degrees.
Remove the timing cover and you should see a mark for the cam to line up with.
You want the cam lobes on No.1 cylinder to be pointing away from the followers wether they be rockers above cam or buckets below. This will be the compression stroke.
Once the cam timing is set you can recheck the distributor. It should point to No.1.
