  3. Does the timing belt need to come off to replace valve stem seals?

    5th Gen
    Hi, I've searched all over the forums, but I can't seem to find an answer. All the writeups / tutorials that include replacing the valve seals also tend to replace the belt. Mine's only about 40k kms old, and I really don't want to spend all day taking it off. Is it possible to loosen it enough...
  4. Can't get ignition timing correct.

    3rd Gen
    So I'm very close to breaking in my engine, but I'm stuck because I can't get to 15 BTDC on the flywheel. I can just get past the white TDC mark, maybe plus 5? I'm using a B18A1 intake camshaft, would this have anything to do with it? I'm also using a Acura Vigor TB (which isn't actually...

    3rd Gen
    I recently changed the timing belt on my 89 Lude, now when I rev the engine I can see the timing belt rattling back and forth causing my noise. Should I replace the tensioner as well or is there a trick to getting that little extra belt tension?

  9. H22A4 ECU and OBDII to OBDI Conversion

    5th Gen
    Is it true that if your timing is all out of whack, that simply rotating the distributor on a 5th Gen Lude will not adjust the timing? Does the ECU auto-correct the timing to what it "thinks" is correct? I have seen the flow-chart for the Honda Maintenance Manual that says if you measure the...
