    Hey everyone,

    Newbie here, first build, but tyring hard so please be gentle.

    I've got a B18A stripped down and back from the machine shop a little while ago. I was photographing everything during the tear down so I could have good reference materials for stuff not covered in my manuals.

    The problem I have is my camera card failed (f***ing piece of s**t) and now I am trying to install the crankshaft and I am not sure where the #1 cap goes and which way the arrow should point. Logic tells me the #1 cap goes by the #1 cylinder and arrows point toward the flywheel end.

    Need a little help.

    Thanks,
    Paul

    There is software out there to restore picture after a card failure. I forget the name of it though.

    Been looking through my manuals and have been able to answer part of the question.

    In case anyone else gets themselves into this position: The #1 cap goes on the pulley end and the #5 goes on the flywheel end.

    So am I right that the arrows point to the flywheel?

    arrows always point towards timing belt number 1 starts at timing belt and works its way back no matter what part it is main caps, cam caps, etc.
