How do you take out an old alternator and install a new alternator in a 97 honda civic

From the top of the car remove the slide and anchor bolt from the alternater bracket. remove your 3 or 4 pin plug and diconnect the pos power line beside the 3 or 4 pin plug ( on the back of the alternater). now raise the car and from below remove the lower bolt that allows the alternater to swing back and forth. the bolt fits through the housing of the alternater. remove the belt. now the alternater is free. this lower bolt that was just removed attaches to a bracket bolted to the block. remove this bracket and the alternater will slide out of the bottom of the car. complete the above steps in reverse to install new part.

Should the car start without alternator,waterpump and belts.

when you replaced the cam gear did you make sure that the timing marks where in line? If so than yes you should be able to start the engine providing all of the components are installed (ie.) the timing cover,new front seal(recomend you do this),crankshaft balancer,intake manifold,valve covers, etc. you should not need to install the alternater,power steering pump,waterpump and other accessaries at this point.
