Hi all,

First time posting and just got back into the honda game. So I have had this CRX sitting in the driveway for four years. It had a ZC SOHC. It had snapped a timing belt so I got a new head. I wanted to go OBD1 so I found a head from a D15B7, got it resurfaced, 3 angle valve job and new seats. I used the ZC cam since its better. I put the head on the block, torque everything down to spec and in the order laid out in the FSM.

Since I am using the ZC cam, I kept the plastic piece from the ZC head that has the cam index mark at 7 o' clock. I have the cam gear index pointing at the mark. I have the crank shaft gear mark lined up with arrow on the block, and also double checked by putting the t belt cover on and crank pulley on to check the TDC mark on the pulley lines up with the TDC marks on the timing belt cover. When I go and put the timing belt on, I cannot get it on without disturbing either the cam timing or the the crank position. Therefore my cam is always either 1 tooth retarded or advanced.

Since the B7 an ZC/A6 head are the same casting, everything should line up right? What I mean is , I shouldn't have to worry about being a tooth off (4.7x degrees) since this is basically an ZC/A6 engine.

The head has a .030 stamp so I'm assuming its been milled 30 thousandths. Would this be enough to throw things off?

Help!

Anbody know at what crankshaft degree the exhaust and intake lobes on the cam will be at it peak for an A6 cam?

Since I cant line it up, If I had the above specs then I could throw on degree wheel on the crank and then degree the cam with an adjustable cam gear instead
