1983 civic 1500 timing

I recently replaced the head gasket on my 83 civic.  I am going to set the timing but before I do, I want to know if I need to set the crank at TDC off the marks on the crank timing gear or if I can set it off the marks on the fly wheel.  I tried to pull the crank pulley to access the marks but am having a hell of a time removing it.  Thanks in advance...   V

    Thanks for the quick reply.  So just to make sure I am getting this correctly.  For the 1500, the engine should be at TDC at 0' on the fly wheel indicator and the cam pulley should line up with the arrow on the head.  Thanks again I really appreciate your help.

    Looks like I got it figured out.  Thanks....

My husband's '83 F250 overheats on and off going


Some thing too check:
Make sure coolant level is up to line and clean (not dirty, do to clogged radiator, may need to be flushed or replaced).
Make sure air flow through the out side of radiator is clear (dirt, leaves, ect..) .
Make sure fan is working properly equip t (is not running too slow). Or Manual (belt driven) fan clutch is working properly, not loose or spinning too freely?
Check for broken or cracked fan blades itself.
Check radiator cap, (no gasket tears).
Could be thermostat going bad ?
Could be coolant temperature Relay or sensor/switch (from computer) going bad?
Check radiator hose(s) (too soft, may collapse)?
In some rare cases:
Timing could be off.
Could be water pump.
Could be blown head gasket(s).
Could have cracked head(s).
ECT..............Hope this was some help???

I need the belt diagram for a 1982-83 honda civic.


Here is a link to every picture and belt you could possibly need. Looks like only an alternator belt that is easy and a timing belt that is more involved but these pictures are great!!

91 2.0 subaru legacy, needs head gasket and timing blet replacement. how do i repair?


If you're not a very experienced mechanic, take the car to one. You're going to be pulling off the cylinder head, which requires a LOT of teardown just to get to that point. The way you set up the engine before disassembling even the first bolt is critical, and there are about a hundred little tricks and techniques you're going to need to know before you do such a job.

Here's a photo of my wife's car from this past weekend (copy and paste into your browser) - I replaced the head gasket on her Honda Civic. This was several hours' worth of teardown and cleaning in preparation for installing the new gasket (the new head gasket is in the picture, lying flat with the four large holes for the pistons):

There are specific two-step torque sequences and patterns for reinstalling the head that are crucial to do properly or it'll never seal. I'm sure the information on how to do it, step by step, but if you're going to tackle the job, you'll need a lot of time, an extensive tool set, step by step instructions and torque specs for many of the subassemblies, quite a few new parts (head gasket, head bolts/studs, manifold gaskets, timing belt, timing tensioner, accessory belts, water pump, thermostat, all fluids (since they'll be drained before starting), etc etc etc). It's a huge job and one that is easy to screw up, and on a teardown of this level, one mistake can be all you need to destroy the engine.

you have to pull it aprt again even though you changed the head gasket,did you plane your heads first,you might have an uneaven surface,but once you pull the heads off,try to check the cylinders with a bright light,check around the top of the cylinders it usally cracks there,a hairlane crack is all it takes,your probally going to have to pull the motor,and bring it to a machine shop,they can plane the block,and heads,and they can check it for cracks,if you have a cracked block they can put a sleeve in the cylinder thats cracked,but if I was you I would grab a junkyard motor and throw it in,I dont know what condition your truck is in but spending all that money on a 83 I would just grab junkyard motor
