    Hey, nice car! I'm new to the forum and have a problem. I'm driving an 4WD civic wagon from 1990. Last night, I changed the head gasket, but to get the timing belt back on, I clicked the the camshaft gear forward one movement on accident. Now it won't start! How can I fix this? How many "clicks" of the gear equal one rotation? Thanks!

    que? you mean you bumped the gear a tooth out of time? one rotation of the gear would be one rotation of the cam.. obviously.. not sure what you mean by that. set the crank to tdc, pull the timing belt, reset the cam gear to tdc, and put the belt back on.

    a "click" would probably mean the cam moved about a quarter turn.

    ahh i see what he might of meant then. dunno why i didn't think of that before. well if you're cam timing is that far out then theres no way it's going to start.
