Question about 2001 Honda Civic
I'm replacing a timing belt on a 1995 Honda Civic w/ a 1.5 liter engine also doing the water pump. Can I get specs on how to line up the timing marks please?

I set the Crank timing mark to 0 ( Top Dead Centre )
Before you remove the Belt.
Use White Paint Pen to mark the belts & sprockets.( Cam gear...Crank gear... Water pump gear)
1 tooth only per gear & belt.( You should have a mark on 1 tooth on the gear & belt).
MARK THE BELT (A =CAMGEAR W = WATER PUMP C = CRANK GEAR )
Loosen tensioner & remove the belt (try not to move/turn any of the sprockets/gears)
Count the TEETH on BOTH BELTS. ( MAKE SURE THEY HAVE THE SAME AMOUNT OF TEETH)
Mark the new Belt.COUNT THE TEETH BETWEEN MARKS ( should have the same amount as the old belt). Mark A ... W ...C ...
DOUBLE CHECK THE NUMBER OF TEETH BETWEEN MARKS.
Reverse installation for assembly.
Ensure timing belt marks match up with the correct gear marks....A...W...C
