1997 prelude h22

Here is my situation.

Replace the auto tensioner to manual using the kit and following directions. I then turn crank pulley and cams to TDC and pull off the old timing belt. Put new belt back on and new balance belt. Check again the the timing belt is at TDC. Now I did the align front balance pulley to the mark and I forgot to align oil pump pulley(back balance pully). Cover her up and start the engine. Crank but no start, but it does turn. Took cover off to ensure that timing belt is TDC and it is TDC. still no start and then found out that the back pulley had to be align as well. No I'm not off by one teeth, I triple check and everything is on the spot.

Here we are; I have yet to align the back balance pulley but I thought that the balance pulley only effected the vibration of the vehicle, not the starting. Questions below.

1 - Does the balance pulley prevent engine from starting up?

2 - I also forgot to take off the +/- terminal from the battery and while I was take the wires off the alternator the was sparks and I went ****, forgot so I went to battery and took it off. WILL THIS DO ANYTHING TO PREVENT STARTUP? I check and all fuses are still good.

3 - Because balance pulley were not align, and I crank it like 5 times or a little more less is my engine screwed even though the timing belt is at TDC?

4 - It does have an aftermarket alarm on the car. I did disarm it before attempting to start the car, could an alarm prevent it from starting up? I would highly doubt this because I have the remote disarms the alarm.

Please Help.

Thanks,

Shingi

no, the rear balancer shaft SHOULDN'T prevent the engine from starting. it'll prolly just vibrate like all hell when the motor actually runs.

check all the fuses again. both in the car and engine bay. i'm really thinking you blew a fuse when taking the alt cable off.

no, your engine should still be fine with the rear BS not aligned. as long as both the crank and cams are @ TDC, your engine should be fine.

sometimes alarms can affect the engine from starting. but if its cranking, i doubt this is your problem too.

Re: 1997 prelude h22

can someone shed some light as to why it won't start. The car was running fine before I did the job so it must be something that I did.

Also check the fuse inside and engine compartment all looks good.

Any clues will help.

Thanks,

Shingi
