    Would anyone know how many degrees BTDC or ATDC should I adjust my timing is it in the manual, or is there a lable under the hood somewhere, and do I use a timing light, where are the timing marks located on, on the crankshaft pulley?

    I have a '95 Sol with a VTEC/DOHC, and its a bit hesitant from a dead stop.
    I recently replaced the timing belt, It runs well, except for the slight hesitation, I think if I advance the timing a couple degrees it'll be ok!

    Thanks

    most hondas are +16. check at the flywheel side of the engine, you should be able to shine the timing light in there and see what your timing is set at.

    No opening in bellhousing...


    In order to see anything rotating on the flywheel side, the transmission bellhousing would to have a window, I don't see one (unless one looks under the car). The opening on the underside is probably for drainage or some other reason...

    I'm going out there, and look for that plug right now!


    I'm going to give it another try R!

    No luck! Sorry...
