Question about 1992 Acura Integra Hatchback
I need to know what to remove, for the timing belt cover to be pulled so to install new belt. Timing marks are set to TDC on #1 and the Crank is set TDC also. from what I have seen in all the you tube vids. my sons integra is an 1b18a1 engine. is it also an interferience engine? if so, what the **** do I do then? rebuild head or replace with junk yard queen?
Some engines rotate counter clockwise. With a timing belt on, you don't want to go backwards because the timing belt and tension pulley are designed to go only one way.
You can put a tall thin steel rod in #1 cylinder to tell when you get to TDC.

The only damage to the head will be bent valves so new valves will fix that end . Get a work shop manual (Aftermarket from a spares shop) (. Follow the pictures and directions closely or you will be doing the valves again .) IT is not TDC but where the timing marks point to . Replace the belt with a new one . AS oil is the killer of belts replace all seals and idler pulleys as well. As you are doing it for your son stay away from the wreckers as the next engine will want a belt as well . Have the job properly and have piece of mind knowing that the car will not let him down at a bad time.

first lift the front of the car remove the front driver side tire you would have to remove the plastic gard to acces your damper. remove altenator and other belt , then remove the damper ,the valve cover and the side plastic cover (10 mm bolt) now that you see the timing belt you would have to support the engine (driver side) just insal a wood plank on the jack to no damadge the oil pan .
now if you look on the cams gear it will print
UP on one spoke , turn engine until both cam UP print is up if you look closer to the gear it will have little mark just on the side of the thoot at every 90degre make shure the side mark of each gear alling with the top of the head (were the valve cover gasket apply) then on the bottom gear on the crank it will have a mark on it allign the mark with the arrow on the cassing of the engine (oil pump cassing) remove your old belt by loosing the tensioner (14 mm) instal you new belt make shure the belt is tight before retighting the thensioner bolt . then turn your engine by and (remove spark plug it will be easier) a couple turn recheck if everyting line up and make shure the belt is still tight don't turn the engine with the starter because if you didn't alignt everyting good you could bent the valve just a head up. replace everyting togeter and you have a new timing belt in your car and sorry for my bad speling im a french hope that info help

You need to find the timing marks on both crank and cam pulleys, set it, then take of the belt ane dont let any pulley move! Put on new belt and set the tension of the belt.

You don't need the timing marks to do this. In fact, my experience is that sometimes, going by the timing marks can confuse the issue and make you go a tooth out. My advice would be to expose the belt and then, using something like tippex (liquid paper) make a thin white mark on each pulley and on a corresponding position on the block or head as necessary so that you can see exactly where they are and how they line up when the belt is on place. Once this is done, remove the old belt and put the new one straight back on without disturbing any pulleys.
Common sense I know, but lets make it clear for anyone else reading this later. Once you remove the belt DO NOT turn the engine over or rotate ANY pulleys. Get the old belt off and the new belt on fast. The number of passing idiots who wander into a workshop and move pulleys or turn ignition keys when you're not looking is amazing and often leads me to the conclusion that somewhere in the world there is an engine parts manufacturer who actually employs people to sneak into workshops and do this, just out of malice!
