Hey everyone
My friend and I were working on his 2000 integra ls and we just put in a b20b. We went to align it to TDC to set the timing but the belt wasn’t properly tensioned. Without realizing, when we turned the crank the cams would turn unsychronized (one would spin and the other wouldn’t) The crank would only turn about 180° in each direction. We heard some kind of loud snapping sounds and realized that the belt wasn't properly tensioned. The cams were way out of alignment but we turned them back to TDC but they aren’t coordinated with the crank.
Was this probably the sound of the valves breaking? Is there a way I can check without taking off the head?
Thanks for any help
