timing belt help needed asap!!

ok, need to know if all single cam d-series are the same timing belt?

what i have is a d16z6 with a d15b2 head, and theres a d16z6 timing belt on the motor already but i cant get it to fit over the cam gear, so what timing belt would i need? or are they all the same?

i think theres a difference of a few teeth. best is to call honda and ask for part numbers on both motors to see if they match up... Its general practice to never reuse a timing belt anyway, unless its very very new and you mark which tooth went into which sprocket groove and you also mark the direction of rotation BEFORE removing it from the motor. Timing belts are like piston rings they seat into their groove after a few hours of running,

i believe it depends on the water pump and the number of teeth it has cause the cam gear and crank gear are the same on both engines.

It's simple count the number of teeth on one cam gear to the other, and the number of teeth from one belt, to the other. It they are all the same then your good!!!

But as far as I can tell the Part#'s look different.

Only way to know is to take it off and look at the inside of the belt for cracks and stuff. But, if you actually go as far as taking off the belt you might as well replace it!

96+ Civics are usually 10 years or 160K.
<96 are 10 years or 100K.
