Re: how to line crank and cam for timing belt on 1988 no...
Hard to explain here... but I believe that car also has the balance shaft which needs to be timed as well. The camshaft has 2 lines which line up to the top of the head, and a "up" or "top" mark at the top. Crank is set to 0 degrees.

need help putting my 1997 honda accord in time.I got the cam pullie on top and crank top dead center.does the oil pump gear haft to go straght up too.and one more thing when we get the belt on it keeps tring to roll offneed help bad.Can anybody help please?
Put the crank on top dead centre.there will be a mark on the crank sprocket and case also there will be a mark on the cam gear. Though allways use tippex to put your own marks on the sprockets and case before removing the old belt . If you can locate the factory marks highlight them with tippex aswell. If you do this you know that the new belt has gone back exactly in the right place. Taking a few photos after you have marked it and before removing the old belt will be useful. I have had times where ive relied on factory marks and it has not been right.
there is a arrow on each cam lets call them north, you will also see marks at east and west to level cams, east and west need to be parallel were the head mets the valve cover while north points up done. Also there is a mark on the flywheel on the crank that needs to point north as well If you have the plastic cover on the lower you will see a plactic to line it up to.
put it at top dead center, also when you remove the cover rotate until mark on crank gear lines up with mark on oil pump housing ,it right behind the gear, also you will see notches on the cam gears and the rear cover those should also line up when crank gear is aligned, sometime marks on cams are 180 degrees off which just means crank has to be turn one more time, then double mark gears that all, good luck.
There should be markings on the gears or pulleys for both parts. It would be a diamond or dot. The top part should be your cam and the mark would go on the bottom directly over the mark on the crank. The crank mark should be at high noon. They should not offset, they should be directly inline. Single overhead cam only.
Well basicaly there is no adjustment it has timing marks and the belt goes on with the marks on the points.cam pulley has a stamped mark up with line marks that go evenly one on each side has to be even with top of the head.crank pulley the woodruff key goes straight up facing the cam pulley.The balance pulley has a v mark on the pulley and a mark on the block and those go together, dont worry about the water pump there is not timing mark on that.Good Luck
BEFORE U TAKE THE TIMING BELT OFF PUT THE CRANK SHAFT ON ITS MARK.IF THE CAM MARKS ARE NOT LINED UP THEN ROTATE THE CRANK 180.THEN U CAN MARK THE POSITION OF THE CAM & CRANK GEARS W/A CRAYON,WHITE OUT ECT.AS LONG AS THE GEARS DO NOT MOVE THEN U WILL BE OK.WITH THE OLD BELT ON U CAN SEE THE TIMING MARKS.
