SOURCE: i need help putting my
I can email a PDF of the page in the factory service manual that shows how to time the engine. You will need a timing light. The file has two line art drawings and two photos. I can call tomorrow to get your email address. I can then email you and attach the PDF file. Below is what it looks like. The Fixya system doesn't handle PDF files. Please rate my answer. Thanks. .

When this occurs, the timing chain has stretched to the point where you'll never get the valve timing exactly right. I'd replace the chain, they're cheap enough (about 25 bucks) and I bet it will line up spot on. Have removed some Honda timing chains that were almost stretched a full link longer than the new one I was installing. Good luck!

Loosen the belt tensioner on that side , take the belt off and carefully rotate the cam to the timing mark. Do not force it , you don't want to bend a valve. You may have to turn the motor so there is room to turn the cam to the correct position. Make sure all the marks are lined up, put the belt back on, and reset the tensioner. Now double check the timing marks before finishing the reassembly.
