hi all

i forgot to allign my timing to TDC before removing the belt.
i then moved the crank to tdc and the cams arrows were facing downward so i rotated those left back to where they should be.

in the photos are how they are now.
i hope i didnt hit the piston with the valves it did feel quite "springy" to turn.
and i hope the timing is now in the correct position as i cant remember if i turned the crank left or right to get it to tdc

The engine is not in interference unless it's in vtec, so no worries on bits grinding. The resistance you felt was probably the compression.

The engine should always be rotated anti clockwise as that's its design, you should not have caused any problems though if you turned it opposite from this.

I can't see the dot that lins up with the arrow on the crank, so can't confirm it's right, but the top end looks good.

You will also have to align the balance shaft belts.
