B18C Camshaft Install [Page > 1 2 ]

Now that the cam caps are off, you can go ahead and pull the timing belt off of the cam gears. Then carefully remove the cams from the head.
With the cams out of the head, remove the bolt holding the cam gear. An impact wrench will come in handy. Be sure to note the key. Do not misplace it.
With the bolt off, carefully slide the cam gear off the cam and place the key somewhere safe.
Repeat the process for the other camshaft. Also, inspect the cam seals for wear or damage. Replace if necessary. Install them onto the new cams.
With all that done, you can now prep the head for installation of the new camshafts. The first step is to run a bead of assembly lube along the cam journals on the head. Then be sure to install the correct cam on the correct side. The intake cam is slotted on one end. This end will fit into the distributor side - notice that the slot is offset to one side.
Slide the intake cam into place by sliding the distributor side in first. Be sure to line up the slot on the cam with the slot on the distributor. Be sure to line up the slot on the cam with the slot on the distributor. The slot on the intake cam is offset to one side and will only mate with the distributor one way. Make sure you line up the distributor with the slot on the intake cam such that it are not 180 degress off. Rotate the distributor/rotor if necessary. Repeat the process for the exhaust cam.
With both cams in place, be sure that the cam seals are installed correctly and seated properly.
Once again, run a bead of assembly lube on each cam cap before reinstalling onto the head. Again, be sure to match up the correct cam cap to its proper location and that its facing the correct direction. Then reinstall the cam cap plates.
Be sure to use some Honda Bond on the driver side cam cap before tightening it down. Then replace the cam gears and be sure the key is properly installed as well.
Torque the cam plate bolts down to spec and make sure the cam gears are at TDC and reinstall the timing belt. Double check the the belt is on correctly and perform a valve adjustment. Then replace the valve cover and plugs wires and your done!
