Timing Belt

So now my most recent project on my prelude before I can get her running is replacing the timing belt. Here are some quick pictures of what I'm working with.

Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

Re: Timing Belt

Please tell me that you cut that timing belt and it wasn't like that when you bought it lol I don't know if you know this or not but if that timing belt breaks and the motor is running there's pretty much a guarantee that you will at least have bent valves and depending on where the RPMs were when it breaks it could have considerably more internal damage...but I'm just going to hope you cut it lol ..here is a link to a thread on how to do your timing belt...ENG: universal - How to do H22 Timing belt removal and install

Re: Timing Belt

Doing a compression test soon to see if there are any problems. but the Belt looks pretty clean like a straight cut. Just waiting on the Honda dealership to get this damn key made for me now.

Re: Timing Belt

Looks like the belt was cut and someone tried starting it... those gears are off.

Good luck setting it all to tdc ... will def need an extra hand. Betting bent valves

Re: Timing Belt

^^^X2 man you need to do as much as you can to inspect the condition of your internals before you sink a lot more time and money into it...unless of course you knew there was a good chance you were gonna need engine work. good luck man

Re: Timing Belt

I bought the car as is. And I'm hoping for no bent valves. I'll be replacing the belt soon and doing further inspections as soon as I can. It looks like the timing belt was the original belt so I'm hoping it was just worn. wish me luck.... I'm not to far into the car yet so hoping no bent valves.

Re: Timing Belt

I think I just have a bad angle in the picture but the gears are in the same position and I've gotten some opinions and a lot of people say I should be ok as far as bent valves go.

Re: Timing Belt

Well glad to hear you actually did get it cheap. And I certainly hope you don't have any bent valves or any other internal damage although I will be surprised if there isn't any. Was that car a repo? Just started putting it all together...cut timing belt...ignition switch lock cylinder...cut off the cat..lol really sounds like a repo

Re: Timing Belt

yeah it sure was. I think the owner cut the timing belt to stop them from driving off with it.... I hope no internal damage. If so it's just going to turn into a project car. Right now I'm just trying to get it to the point where I can check for damage. Any other ideas other then compression test? How else would I check for bent valves?

Re: Timing Belt

Well aside from pulling the manifolds, both intake and exhaust, and just plain looking at the valves a compression test is the best way. When you put your new belt on make sure that you turn the engine over several times by hand before you ever try to start it with the key/starter. If there is any internal damage you won't make it worse...plus if you are off on your timing you won't create damage that wasn't there. I can see that there would be a possibility that the guy simply pulled the valve cover and cut the belt because the cut is right on top..the belt hasn't fallen off down in the cover and bound up in your gears....and hopefully since he messed up the lock cylinder to the switch nobody was able to turn the engine over with a key...so you may be pretty lucky.

Re: Timing Belt

That's exactly what my car guy said too... The CAI and Valve cover were in the car when I got it. Minus a battery and Spark plug wires. My only big problem right now is if having a Locksmith come out to the car for 250 $. That seems expensive to me... but he's the only one who has told me a solution to not having a key... Other then replacing the Ignition Lock Cylinder itself... and that's a lot more then 250....

Re: Timing Belt

Well i just replied to your other thread about the lock cylinder but anyway all i can say about the lock cylinder thing is I just don't like to take any short cuts or work with cheap parts... I mean I understand you're just basically trying to see what your working with and you want to have a way to start it when you get the timing figured out so i get that. So the lock cylinder thing is your call...I'm pretty picky and obsessive compulsive so I really like stuff to be a certain way but hey do what you gotta do man, just do the best you can to find a locksmith who knows what he's doing.

Re: Timing Belt

Update on timing belt. I've got the Alternator out and the Power Steering pump out and Crank Shaft bolt off. From the looks of it, the original water pump failed and snapped the belt. Water leaking from the pump and signs of slight rust, nothing serious. Ordering Timing belt kit on Friday and all new seals and both accessory belts. Progress has made me hopeful for no internal damage. Maybe a week from now and I'll be ready for Compression test.

Re: Timing Belt

I assume you are saying that the bearing in the water pump seized..the gear stopped moving and snapped the timing belt? I certainly hope that's not the case...i was more hopeful when we were talking about dude loosing his car and decided to cut the belt...certainly not trying to be pessimistic but just keep your fingers crossed man
