Question about 1988 Honda Accord 4 Door
Recently had the head rebuilt and putting it back together I am getting conflicting answers on setting the crank and cam timing. Also would like to know the tightening sequence and torque of the cam bearings or valve train as it be. The help here was very good before and hoping for a quick answer again this time so I can get my little car running again. Thanks again for all the help.

SOURCE: torque specs needed
on a 1999 Honda Accord, the torque for the front axle nut is 181 ft lbs. For the most part, sung it up and then go a bit further. If you are reusing the old axle nut, tighten it until the stake mark on the nut lines up with the notch in the axle (make sure to re-stake it). check out alldata.com/diy for individual vehicle subscriptions which have all the repair info you will ever need. If you had the steering knuckle out, tighten the balljoint nuts on the upper and lower control arms until they are tight and then tighten until the hole lines up to recieve the cotter pin.

the breaker bar method is ok to take the bolt off ,but it has to be torqued to the proper spec. if you get a haynes manual for 25 bucks or so,it will explain about the timing belt,and then you have the manual for doing other repairs.they are really worth the money.

This is not necessarily specific for your car but as a general rule of thumb, if you start in the middle of the head and work your way out, torque down to 30 ft/lb first and then a quarter of a turn on second pass. Specific instructions often come with a new head gasket.
