What is an error code 8

Whats an error code 8 on a 89 crx

    Old distrubutor was shot.. it was locked up.
    With a new one installed, it starts for a while with rough idle.
    then misses, and eventually dies. I fear the faulty distributor chewed the timiming belt.. i get an error code 8 once again.
    Beginning error codes were 4, 8 and 16. We replaced the fuel by draining and added new fuel. 16 (injector fault code) went away.
    I will look at the relay under the driver side dash..

TDC (Top Dead Center) position/crank angle sensor or circuit Problem. That's what Honda calls it. Part stores will call it a CRANK POSITION SENSOR. P.S. The Sensor itself is probably going bad.
