h22a1 head and h23a1 bottom

Hi prelude lovers I got a problem and I thought it was a easy built. I got everything on and the only problem I ran into was my timing belt. I change the head to h22a1 vtec. I also change the cam gear, crank gear, and water pump to h22a1. So when I install the belt (2.2l si vtec) it was a tight fit and I have no play with the belt to make it fit. Can any body tell me what am I doing wrong. Al my parts I put in is corrected and I follow by the book. So I'm a little lost right now. Any help will do! Thank you

Re: h22a1 head and h23a1 bottom

FunRyd is right. It's a bitch. I believe the H22 timing belt is a 155 tooth belt. It's a very tight fit.

What tensioner are you using? The OEM H22 hydraulic tensioner, or the H23 tensioner set? The first time I did my belt, me and my friend's dad couldn't get the belt over the cam gears, so we had to loosen the cam caps and tilt the cams to get it on.

It's gonna be super tight to get on, once it's on it will stretch out over time to ease any sort of re installation you may have to do.
