    I just bought a JDM B16A that originally came from HMO. Its been sitting for a long time, so I pulled the timing covers off and checked the timing just for kicks. When the crank pulley is at TDC the cam gears have the "UP" marks pointing straight down and the "PR3" stamps are straight up.

    It appears to be exactly 180 degrees off. If the "PR3" stamp was supposed to be up than the timing would be dead on.

    Is this normal for a JDM B16? I have an EM1 shop manual that I'm using and wanted to make sure the timing set-up is the same on both motors. You think the motor is damaged? I will be checking the compression soon, with the timing corrected.
