HELP!!!!!!! H23 VTEC SWAP

Ok so we have been on here getting info on this swap. We have the motor and have changed the oil pump so we have the tdc and cas. Changed the intake plenum, the water necks,water pump and oil pan (slightly bent in shipping). Now we have run into another undiscussed problem, THE TIMING BELT, its too short!!! I tryed useing the manual tensioner but its still too short. I have belt 40216 for h23 nonvetec. Can someone plz help this is the last thing holding us back from getting this thing installed. thx for any help.

Re: HELP!!!!!!! H23 VTEC SWAP

ya h22 timing belt. gotta remember whenever you order parts for this motor, buy them as if it were a h22. there are few parts that arent the same.. ie crank, rods, and pistons are the big ones.

Re: HELP!!!!!!! H23 VTEC SWAP

Slight problem w/H22 timing belt since i had to use the h23a oil pump and subsequent gear to have the swoops for the tdc and cas. In doing this it changed the tooth count and tooth spacing, the water pump from h23a 19 tooth count and cam gears for proper tooth spacing. The h23a and h22 will both use the same timing belt. However since changing cams, oil pump and water pump the tooth spacing is now relevant to h23a1 (non vtec) belt length 47.64 in. w/ tooth count of 127. the h22 belt uses a belt length of 48.82 in. and tooth count of 127. The tooth spacing is the major hold back. Any thoughts on this would be very helpful. thx pzone

Re: HELP!!!!!!! H23 VTEC SWAP

umm.. h22 water pump.. like i said, all ur parts that you bolt on to that motor should be h22 spec. anything you buy(well almost everything) should be the same as if you were buying for h22
