Question about 1987 Honda Accord
Probably. Most all Honda engines are interference or zero tolerance engines, meaning there is no margin for valves when they are out of sequence, like when the timing belt goes. You will probably have to do the head, but get it checked out by an engine rebuilder to be sure before you start repairs.

A good way (although rather tedious!) to check for proper timing belt installation is to count the number of belt teeth between the timing marks. There are 133 teeth on the belt; there should be 40 teeth between the timing marks on the left and right side camshaft sprockets, and 43 teeth between the timing marks on the left side camshaft sprocket and the crankshaft sprocket.
