    K guys, i really need help, I just replaced my headgasket, and i havent put in the valvetrain or anything yet. How do I set the timing again to put the timing belt on right? Did the pistons need to be in any position? Because i just bolted the head back onto the block without even noticing. What about the camshafts when i put them back in? Anyhelp will be appreciated or any sites explaining this..

    yes, set the bottom end to TDC, you should see the white mark on the crank pulley lined up with the pointer on the block. (not the white ones near the red one)
    next, set your cam gear arrows UP, then slip on the timing belt, make sure the slack is on the side towards the rear of the car, and tight towards the front of the car. then loosen and re-tighten the tension pulley. i've only done this on my B16, but i assume its the same for the other honda motors.
