        i try it from the bottom. of course the crank pulley is off

        the frustrating part is the gasket keep coming off once the thing get in

        whatever. I broke 2 lower timing cover. Now i got to order another one


          I hear ya, I haven't done mine in awhile, but it did take several tries just b/c of the gasket. It literally only goes up and in 1 way from the bottom, very tough, you'll get there.


            Remove the bar that goes to the front crossmember . Go in slow. It takes a while. I put some glue at the top of the gasket and had a 2nd person guide me up.


              you have to tilt the bottom of the cover towards the back and go in that way. try doing a h22 swapped car. its even tighter.

                I spent 2 hours wrestling that lower timing cover and at the same time trying to keep that rubber seal that goes around it on, which kept on coming off. That was honestly the most time consuming part of the t-belt install.


                  I will give it a try again after i get another timing cover

                  I might take off the Radius Rod this time


                    I always use silicone sealer to hold the gasket on the cover. Well worth the 40 minutes or so it takes to set up.

                    Problem solved.

                      I got so frustrated with one of mine that I undid the left front corner of the cross member to allow the engine to drop even more than with just the left engine mount undone. I second using sealer or gasket maker as an adhesive to hold the seals on.

                        the cover is the only thing left for me to get my CB up and running.
