Im starting to really hate timing. Been reading and searching threads and everything but i dont understand. Okay so the helms manual says set to tdc. So i line up the pointer to the TDC mark on the crank pulley. Then I set the cam pulley to tdc. I have a question about that first, should the cam pulley be at a very slight angle to line up with the head ? Or should the UP be exactly straight up with the 2 lines completely flat? So after I set the cam pulley to TDC, and the crank pulley to TDC, i slide on the belt with the tensioner loosened. The manual says rotate the crankshaft counterclockwise 3 teeth on the cam pulley. Okay, right here is where im lost. So if both pulleys are exactly where they need to be and i rotate the crank with slack in the timing belt, the cam isn't going to move at all because im just pulling the slack out of the belt and its not going to move the cam with it. But yet the crank is moving since im spinning it. So when there is finally enough tension, the cam finally moves but the crank is already way off by the time the cam catches up. I'm so confused! :| Is this what im supposed to be doing or can someone explain to me. I feel like im just missing something dumb. This is on a d16a6 crx si btw.
