I have neither I have a DOHC ZC which takes the 88-89 integra dizzy (td03u)
I think it was the crank sensor that was bad in mine so I jus replaced the whole dizzy. If i were you I would try pickin a dizzy up at the junkyard and see, but remember if you get one for a OBD1 car you are gonna have to do a Obd0 to OBD1 conversion and I think get a OBD1 ECU. Plus if its not the dizzy you can have a extra one for parts or for when yours goes bad.

i g\=do have spark for sure but i think it might be the timing i dont have the uper or lower belt covers so timing is a bit difficult if you have a picture or really good explation to were TDC is on your block and in correlation to the head it would be greatly appreciated.:p

What I have always done to find TDC is take a dowel or a really long 3/4 drive extension, find the number one cylinder, take the spark plug out, make sure the cap is off, put either the dowel or extension in the hole for the spark plug on the number 1 cylinder and manually crank the engine (by turning the crankshaft pully) till the piston is all the way up the dowel will stop going up (its a quick easy way, not the right way im sure. but it works). then U have TDC or close enough.
I have no clue how to set the timing on the top end (my cam gears have arrows that are supposed to point up when the rotor in the distributor is pointing at where the number 1 cylinder plugs into the cap) I dunno how it is on SOHC though. If anyone is reading this and knows a better way to check for TDC please say.

if the cap is off should the rotor be right over top of of the point or should it be a little off. the block is at TDC for sure but the head is off, i have the stock A6 dizzy. #1 being at the bottum right or top right???

i tried tyo start it and the same old gre, gre, rev, rev, ga, gra rev ga rev. not the battery cause my 800 CCA optima is putin way more then nessecary to the starter. went out and picked up a nother new starter just in case. but nothin, startin to think that the belt i have on there is tooo tight. i have the belt from a 92-95 civic 1.6L Parts # TB224 made by continental at Crappy tire. if any body else hase the A6 block and Z6 head what belt did you use just give me the part # and i can figure out if i can get it.
