Anyone know is number 1 cylinder is the one closts to the timing belt or the one furtherst away?
I'm buys doing a timing belt on a VTEC Honda Accord, need to put it at top dead, so I've lined the harmonic balance up, lifted the distributor cap off and it's either point to number 1 or number 4. if it's number 4 i need to rotate the crank another revolution.

thats my thinking

just rip off the belt and change and disconnect battery to make sure u cant accidently attempt to start engine


and btw f**k

ALL CARS are number 1- whatever from the front of the engine ( or water pump side, non gearbox side etc )

unless it is a V engine where it can be different iirc the #1 cyl there is passenger side front ( or front right when looking front to back of engine )
some engines will be differnt of course


ohh did u check the plug leads? they can be numbered

on a V engine number 1 is still the forward most cylinder. some engines it front left some it's front right

Because when you pull the camshaft and crank shaft sprockets off and replace the seals behind them. then tighten them back up. You can check that they along with the 2 balance shafts are all still in there proper position. saves having to go back later if there 1 tooth out etc.

ive always found that marking the old belt and pulleys etc, and transfering those marks to the new belt always works well too, and serves as a double check that u have the correct new belt.

it will also help you get the cam timing wrong if the guy befor you didn't get it right.
you'll just be transfering his mistakes

Have you done this yet, did you work out Honda engines run anti clockwise :lol: Makes a huge difference when turning over and checking timing marks due to belt deflection is different, if this is anything like most of the other mid 90's Hondas have fun getting the timing marks to line up, you have to make a judgement call and hope for the best.

Done almost 2 weeks ago now! Yeah, I was aware of the anti-clockwise. She's running fine.
