Got any old belts laying around?

Cut one as perfectly as you can on a tooth ridge, loosen the idler pulley, remove the spring that holds it snug (or is supposed to)

Try and use the cam gear as the measuring spot, as if you are missing 3-4 teeth distance, it can be covered by the teeth with a zip tie
I would check out the tooth count charts that someone made on here.


I am having trouble finding them, but it will list things like 103 teeth, 104 teeth, etc.. engine.

Hop on rockauto.com, and search for various civic timing belts. example 92 civic dx, 97 civic lx, etc... Some of the belt brands list specs of their belts.


If the d15b7 belt had slack, likely you need to remove 2 teeth, so find a belt to match that.

Transzex/MistaBone asks which tensioner due to the B7 using a larger tensioner pulley

92-95 civic vx belt (d15z1) = 103 teeth
92+ d16 belt (d16z6,d16y5/y7/y8) = 104 teeth
88-95 d15b2/b7/b8 = 106 teeth
88-91 d16a6 = 107 teeth

Make shure that water pump fits right. I bought a B7 water pump once and it was smaller then the B2 and as soon as I started the car it leaked. Look at the water pump on it´s header side and see if there is no space left open ther or if the WP is not bigger. Also check how many teeth and the pulley size on the WP. But I think Sleepingciv is right.
I have a z1 block with a b7 head , using a z1 water pump should the 103 belt still work?

I used a 1.6 tensioner
That does not help directly. Could you be more specific?

1.6 D16A6 uses the same as the d15b2/b7 (d16a6 88-91, 1.5 nonvtec 88-95)

the D16Z6/Y7/Y8 engines use a different size, still a 1.6.

Clarity helps a bunch!!

That post was from december 2008

While we are happy you are searching, just be aware of post dates.

You can also click on the user profile and see the last time they logged in.

I also told you how you can measure the exact belt length you need in your other posted thread. It will be 100% accurate
