To save the gurus the time of posting this tip I learned here....

Before removing the old belt, match-mark the side of the belt and the cam
cogs and crank cog with white acrylic paint, paint pen or anything else that
shows up well. When you remove the old belt line it up with the new belt (to
determine they are the same size, same number of teeth) and then transfer
the marks to the new belt. When you put the new belt on, line up the marks
and be sure the marks are still lined up when the tensioner is snugged down.

Either before removing the old belt or after installing the new one, be sure
the marks for the crank and cams actually line up with the marks on the
engine... although I'd expect the engine operation to be pretty bad if it
weren't right to start with.

Mike

This is the best advise ever when doing a timing belt, follow it!
I don't even line up TDC anymore, just use the paint pens.

Hi,
My 1997 Accord is running a bit down on power and with a pretty noticeable
vibration at speed since it's timing belt change. Since the belt is most
likely off, am I screwed? or...can it be set straight (by someone who knows
what they are doing)
