Question about 1991 Honda Accord
I just replaced a water pump on a 1991 honda accord dx and I am having two problems one is how to properly tension the timing belt with the tensioner(may have installed it wrong ?) after setting all the timing marks car ran for two days fine then it just quit as if the timing belt jumped.noticed it was a little loose but thought the tensioner would automatically adjust the tension. Second problem is I had take take it to a shop to loosen the crank pulley bolt with a torque wrench and torch and haven't taken it back yet to get torqued again. I did put a breaker bar on it and tapped the ignition several times to tighten the bolt .Is this sufficient?
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.
