    Hi all, I have read the couple threads here and have a haynes manual as well. But I still have 2 questions on a civic 1.6 d series head gasket change. One being is the removal of the distributer neccesary and the second is the previous owner put a new timing belt on so I was not plannning on changing it, so I have heard from others that it is important to keep tension on the belt so it does not slip off the crank. How would one do so?

    You have a manual, use it.

    x2 Anyway, with the engine covers on the belt shouldn't come off and even if it moves all you have to do is re-time the engine properly. And take the distributor off, it is keyed to only go back on one way so it's easy to reinstall and once it's out of your way you'll work faster. Other than that doing sohc head gaskets is soooooooo easy.
