hey im having problems getting my timing right on my d16a6 i just put new valve seals in because it was smoking and it fixed that problem but now im having a problem getting the timing marks in the right place. when i put the timing belt back on i lined up the white mark on the crank pulley with the pointer on the timing belt cover and set the cam gear with the up arrow up and the two lines on the side level with the head. my problem is when i try to set my timing i can't get the 3 lines on the crank pulley to even come close to the pointer even if i have the distutor pushed all the way towards the firewall it's still like an inch away from the pointer. im pretty stumped about this situation. can anyone help me out and let me know what im doing wrong. when i drove the car i can really feel it straining and holding back the timing is definitly retard. please someone help so i can get my car back on the road.

cam timing is off, use the mark at 7 o'clock to set the cam at TDC.

follow the upper right diagram for D16Z6, it is same as your D16A6
