    Okay guys an update, i bought a 88 crx si with an oil leak from the head, i have since removed the head and i am getting it cleaned. my problem comes from the timing belt broke when i was taking the head off. Can some one tell me or point me to a guide to replace the timing belt? Thanks

    hondas are known for the crank pulley being impossible to get off... if you have access to an oxy acetyline torch, and an air gun, heat the bolt until its cherry, pop an air gun on there and itll zip right out, theres some other suggestions youll find on here if you search around.. like putting the car in first gear and having someone stand on the brake pedal while you try and break the bolt loose with a breaker bar or a cheater bar. theres also a tool you can buy that helps you keep the pulley in check too, the link is around here somewhere. it all depends on what you have available to you
