Finaly got my DOHC ZC to run. Now I have to adjust the timing on it. I know how to do it but I'm looking for what it' should be set at. I looked in the book and it told me to look on the sticker under the hood. Well my hood is for my civic. I checked on the web but could not find any info to the corret timming. If some one could help me out that would be cool. Thanks.

well make sure the motor is at top dead center, if u look at the cam gears they have like little up arrows on them, they both need to be facing up paralell. also u should have 12 teeth on the timing belt in betweem ur cam gears when u do this, u also have cam alighnment holes, when u have the arrows paralell u will see the holes line up, i stuck a screwdriver too hold it in place when i put the belt on.

You should ahve a TDC mark on the crank pulley and then some sort of mark on the timing cover. Just adjust the distributor until that lines up when using the timing light.

there should be a lone mark for tdc then to the left of it there'll be 3 marks in a row. that's is what you should be adjusting to. aim for the middle one which is 18* i think.
good luck

ok did u line your cams up (both arrows pointing up)?
when u do that before u renstall timing belt put the crank pulley at tdc.
put the belt back on and check it with timing light.
