The belt is captured on the crank, at the back by a flange on the pulley, and on the front by the back of the balancer belt pulley. There is no convex washer.

The oil pump is driven by the crank. The 2nd belt drives the balancer shafts.

I fliped the belt around and reset the tensioner, and that helped a little, but it's still hanging off the front of the cam pulleys (~0.5mm).

Thanks,
Dave

Yes, all parts are OEM from Honda. I have a post over on HT, but no results yet.

Thanks,

Not on topic with your timing belt issue, but dude...if your going to do this, how about you just lop off the roof and make it a convertible. Now that would be bad ass. Not that your project isnt bad ass enough as it is.....but a whole new level of bad assdom!

Convertibles lose a lot of integrity, and need support elsewhere to make up for the lost roof. They do not handle as well as normal cars. A midship design is well known for its superior distribution of weight for handling characteristics. Dave isn't doing this for the bling factor, he wants to build his own midship car, and making a convertible will do nothing but hurt this project. Not to mention lose valuable space in the rear for the retractable top/motor

Back on topic.

excellent point....but if you wanted super bling bling platinum points, you would have the top go down in the front, into the 'engitrunk' Just saying, this thing is already Mega pimp....

Post #DC2H22-68

The weather here has botched my plans for painting for the time being, so I spent a couple of days trying to resolve the timing belt issue. I replaced it a long time ago, when I was still living in Mooresville, and knew it was potentially a problem. This week I thought I’d work on the engine. It’s been sitting a long time and I wanted to get oil pressure in it before starting it up. I pulled the plugs, put on a new filter, added 5 qts. of oil, and dabbed a little oil in the cylinders. When I spun it over with the starter, the oil pressure switch opened within about 5 seconds, which was great. Unfortunately, the timing belt problem got worse, so I went to work on that. I was able to improve the situation to the point where the belt is now running right on the edge of the cam pulleys, but at least it’s not running off the edge.

I hope everyone is still reading, as the best part is yet to come.
Since I had the valve cover off for the timing belt work, I decided to refurb. that nasty thing. As most of you know, the Prelude donor car was a total. It was wrecked bad enough that battery acid had sprayed on just about everything under the hood, including the valve cover. You can see how bad it was in these shots.






I hope everyone is still reading, as the best part is yet to come!
I didn’t do much to it, just got it clean and shot it dry. I used high temp Duplicolor. The “DOHC VTEC” was block sanded with 220 before painting, then masked off. It hasn’t been painted, it’s just bare aluminum.




Now I really hope everyone is still reading because the best part is all about MorningZ! That’s right, Stephen, the guy that runs Team-Integra.net. He sent me a PM last week that said “yo Dave… I'd like to send you something for the car..... can you hook me up with a mailing address?”. Of course, I said “Absolutely!”. A few days went by and I’m thinking, “man, I hope he’s sending me some Team-Integra.net stickers for the quarter windows”. Boy was I wrong. He sent me a TI wrist band, some TI referral cards……………. and a very generous check! I was floored. This guy, out of the pure act of giving, with no strings attached, has contributed directly to this project. I called him the other day to thank him personally, and I can tell you, that we are all very fortunate to have an association with a man like Stephen.

It was very sad news to hear about Cisco Ramos (ciscoandmichele). Although I’ve never met Cisco or Michele, I still feel like I’ve lost a friend. I’m sure we all feel that way. If you haven’t already, please check out this thread to express your condolences. Thanks Stephen.

Best Regards,
Dave

Ha, i just signed the check... that $$ came from "the site"

Just giving a little back to you for what you have given this site with this enormous project, this is definitely a topic/project to get members to "think outside the box"

and i would have had decals sent as well, but i wasn't sure what color, lol
