Question about 1986 Honda Civic
Timing Belt and Tensioner
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
Fig. 2: Positioning the crankshaft and camshaft pulleys before installing the timing belt — 1984–87 engines
Fig. 3: Timing belt tension adjustment — 1984–87 engines
Do not remove the adjusting or pivot bolts, only loosen them. When adjusting, do not use any force other than the adjuster spring. If the belt is too tight, it will result in a shortened belt life.

SOURCE: 2003 Honda Civic -LX Timing belt
I tried to get my timing belt/water pumped changed at 96,000K's and my dealer told me the belt in our 2003 Civic is good for 7 years or 168,000K's. I didn't believe him, so I called another dealer out of town and they told me 7 years or 184,000K's.

If you have never changed a cambelt (timing belt) then it is not recommended that you attempt it. It is a job for a mechanic, as getting the cam timing wrong on reassembly is easy to do and can have disastrous consequences. It is easy enough once you know how, and if you are reasonably mechanically able, I'd suggest getting a repair manual for your vehicle that has a step by step procedure for timing belt replacement. Companies like Haynes produce very good repair manuals.
