        ok guys need help i got the valve cover off, and the distributor cap, and on the exhaust cam i have all the cam holder bolts off, but can't get the cam holders themself to pop off. Do i need to use something to get this things off? or what did you guys do?

            I used adjustable width pliars and yanked on one side then the other to loosen them.

              i dont remember how i got mine off. if you use krazeteggie's way, it would probably be a good idea to put a rag or something over the head of the screwdriver so you dont scratch/knick/gouge anything

                  double check timing before turning the car over by hand. then after 1 rpm by hand check again.

                    when me and my bro were doing a hg job on his civic we figured that one out hehe. everything lined up when we put the belt on, but after we turned the crank pulley a full rotation, it was way off. it took us like 5 tries i dont know what the hell we were doing wrong. luckily we didnt try to start it without checking it

                    jojo - good job let us know how they perform

                      ok G2ic need help . when i started this project i put the crank at TDC, and then stuck 2 screw drivers into the intake holder 1 and exhaust holder 1 so the camshafts and camgears don't move. Then i took the cams out put new ones in put everything back together and when i tried to start the car and i turned over and sounded like it wanted to start but it didn't tried 2 more times, and was messing with the distributer and still nothing can some one lease help!!?? could it that the injecters flooded or something else?

                          double check timing first. then set your base timing(distributer) to what it says in your haynes manual. if you flooded you motor give it an hour or 2 and try again.

                              i just went out there and TDC it again pulled the cams out and was thinking, are the cams supposed to be at twelve o clock when its not on jacks? or when it is? because would't it be kinda at one o clock in jacks so when its off its on 12? sorry this sounds confusing

                                It sounds like your timing is off. Check to make sure your crank pulley is TDC and align the cams. Check your plugs to make sure you havent fouled them. Also if your timing is off check your ECU and you should be throwing code 4 (crank position sensor).

                                  They should be at 12 o'clock relative to the engine, and the marks that are supposed to face each other should do so. make sure the crank is at TDC and you can put the pins in both holes (without play).

                                    ok guys back again, i took the cams out at top dead center, even had the screwdrivers in the 5mm holes, put them back in and spun the crank 4 times, and the stock cam gears line up right and i try to start it and it wants to turn over but it won't could it be i jumped a tooth? and if so how can i fix that?

                                      are you getting spark? also if you jumped a tooth your gears wouldnt line up and/or your crank would be off.. check all your marks again... if it's jumped you have to take off the belt and reposition it..

                                        it seems to me like the exhaust cam is off its alittle like this /, so now it doesn't line up on the mark on the timing cover should i put it at TDC and put the cams in again? and how can i tell if the exhaust cam is off 180 degrees?

                                          The holes for punch pins don't go all the way through the cams I'm pretty sure.

                                          i took the cams out at top dead center
                                          took them out of the engine? there is no reason to be doing that. Remove the timing belt, set the crank at TDC (if it has moved), then set the cams to TDC and pin them in place, then put timing belt back on and spin the crank to make sure everything stays.

                                              finally guys the nightmare is over , i just rotated the crank twice gave some gas and it started, at first it idle for shit but after it warmed up it feels great like it rides smoother and feels more torquey.
