Need diagram showing timing adjustment for a 1992 honda accord 2.2 engine see no timing marks how do i set timing

Check the position of the timing marks. The timing pointer mustbe perfectly aligned with the TDC (white mark) on the flywheel orflex-plate; the camshaft pulley must be aligned so that the word UP isat the top of the pulley and the marks on the edge of the pulley arealigned with the surfaces of the head. Additionally, the face of thefront timing balancer pulley has a mark which must be aligned with thenotch on the oil pump body. This pulley is the one to the left crankwhen viewed from the pulley end.

Also, in here, 1994-Honda-Accord-Coupe-Section-01-Engine (page 47 and next / TDC marks) you can find referenece information about Accord Engine.

I hope help you (remember rated this help) Good luck.

Timing for honda

the timing marks on 86-89 accords are on the flywheel. there is a 1" x 1/2" hole in the block about 1/2 way down on the front where the engine and trans bolt together. its tough to see because there is a p/s hose bracket in the way. there are marks for tdc and the spec.
