I dunno, it has been months since I was out, thanks to work. Usually a little bit of everything(pure muscle to pure rice) and a whole bunch of civics. You know, the usual.

Ok the Timing belt is done. Suprisingly easy. Especially with a Ford Shop manual. Grabbed top dead center and then shoved the pin in. Was right on the money. Cam bar didnt fit so we used a long #2 screwdriver.
Used a Strap wrench to hold the pulley and that worked as designed.
Belt was a little tight then I remembered about taking the tensioner out of the channel and that solved that problem.

Also replaced the #1 O2 sensor to get rid of the slow responce code.
While putting everything back together I noticed one of the spark plugs had some detonation issues so I replaced those as well.

Runs like a scalded dog again. No backfire on throttle blip anymore.


See you peeps after 11 or so.

Wish I had good things to report. Found a CV boot with a nick in it and grease being spun out and no time to take care of it.

Just can't chance driving to and from Austin with it.

If it isn't one thing it is another with my car here lately.
