Question about 1995 Honda Civic del sol
Position of distributor = ignition timing
position of cam in relation to crank = cam timing
You should be able to from before to past the red mark while the distributor is within the the limits of travel the bolts that hold it on allow. If you cant -- then the most likely reason is that your cam timing is off by a tooth.
before you can set ignition timing, you need to have the correct cam timing.
no amount of ignition timing can compensate for incorrect cam timing.
You need to make sure that when the cam is at TDC, so is the crank.
until you have this resolved the marks on you crank pulley are meaningless, in other words you will not be able to set the ignition timing.
sorry this is hard to explain
