Timing issue

92 Honda Prelude
F22B2 Accord engine installed as replacement engine

I just replaced my cam and crank seals and in the process of changing them bumped the car out of time. It cant be more than a few degrees either way but I am not sure which way it shifted.

I am trying to find some sort of walk through to place the car back in time so that I can get it back on the road.

I wasn't sure if I should place this in the Accord section becuase of the engine or the Prelude section becuase of the car.

Any help would be appreciated.

Put the no.1 piston on its compression stroke-line the crank pulley with the indicator at TDC- Remove the D/Cap is the distributor rotor pointing to the no.1 tower of the cap-if its a hair-loosen the distributor and turn it till the rotor is pointing exactly under the no.1 tower.

This don't make it, you have to redo the valve and ignition timing-meaning you have to open it up and line all markings at TDC and rotor pointing to no.1 tower.

Thank you for the timely response. I have removed the timing case and have tried to move the car into TDC. Ive tried putting it into gear (its a manual) and turning the tires but to no avail.

Is there a trick to getting the timing to turn to get it into TDC?

Again, thanks for the info.

**edit**

Got the time belt to move. Got it to TDC and Im about 1/4 to 1/2 inch from lining up with what I think is no.1 on the distrib.

Going to double check which one is No.1 cyl on the car.

Turn the crank pulley till the TDC lines up and make sure the rotor is pointing to the no.1 tower on the D/Cap, remove the no.1 sparkplug-stick a screwdriver in it-is the piston all the way up?

Again thanks for the help.

I lined up the TDC (there is a marker labeled "up" and a marker labeled "pto" I got the marker labeled "up" lined up).

Pulled the cap off and observed the rotor. The rotor is about 1/2 (i measured it as best I could) from being directly under the point on the cap.

I will pull the plug tomorrow and check the height of the piston and report my findings.
